Faxing Purchase Orders via Microsoft Fax


Introduced in version 4.308


Prior to Order Manager Version 4.308, purchase orders could only be faxed using WinFax Pro. Version 4.308 allows you to fax purchase orders using Microsoft Fax, which is included with Windows XP and subsequent versions of the Windows operating system. When you create and send purchase orders at the Purchase Orders screen, or create new drop ship purchase orders, the program automatically faxes the purchase orders for you. Microsoft Fax displays the fax’s progress while it is being sent.
