Normally when a purchase order is created in Duoplane and the settings have the POs configured to send automatically, POs are sent as soon as possible or at the next scheduled PO sending time.
You can, however, delay the sending of a PO until a certain time in the future.
The business reason for doing this is most often because the retailer wants time to review or edit the order before it is sent to the vendor. For example, a retailer might want to hold all POs for 1 business hour to give some time for a customer to request a change or cancellation.
