Donation Return Order Overview

 

 

Purpose of this document

 

Donation return orders are the opposite of a donation order. Whereas a donation order notifies a donor of the receipt of donated goods, the donation return order reverses the donation order in Ceres. A donation return order is used to process the return of goods against a donor, either partially or in their entirety. The posting process will create both a posted donation credit memo and a posted return shipment to take the products out of inventory.

 

Ceres Object release 6.00.00 is required for the functionality described in this document.

Creating Donation Return Orders

 

  1. Donation Return Orders can be accessed by selecting “Search” from the Dynamics 365 Business Central Banner and entering “Donation Return Orders” in “Tell me what you want to do” then selecting “Donation Return Orders” from the results in the Go to Pages and Tasks section OR by selecting the “Donation Return Orders” menu action (if present) from your Role Center home page.

  

 

  1. If you are using batches, select your batch from the batch list; otherwise click Cancel.

  

 

  1. A list of open donation return orders within Ceres will be displayed.

  

 


Donation Return Order Header

 

  1. To create a new donation return order, select Home à New.

 

   

  1. Press the Enter to have Ceres automatically assign the next document number in the No. field. This will also fill in the Posting Date, Order Date, and Document Date by using the Work Date.

 

  1. In the Donor No. field, enter the donor number or use the lookup to select the donor from the list. The donor’s name, address, contact, and fund will flow from the Donor Card.

 


  1. If you are using Dimensions, do a lookup in and select a department, or if this donation is part of a project, select a project.

 

  1. Lookup in the FBC Product Source field to select a product source. This mandatory field provides information to the Quarterly Poundage Report. The UNC Product Source field will update based on the FBC Product Source selected.

 

Note: If an A2H Product Source is selected, the donor must be previously set up with a proper UNC Donor ID on the Donor Card. Please see documentation on donor setup.

 

  1. Lookup in the FBC Product Category field. This mandatory field provides information to the Quarterly Poundage Report.

 

  1. Lookup in the FBC Reason for Donation field to select a reason for the donation.

 

  1. If an A2H Product Source was specified, fill in the UNC Notice No. field.

 

  1. If necessary, place a toggle on the Blue Receipt field. This field will default based on setup from the Donor Card and assist in selecting the proper FBC/UNC Product Source.

 

  1. If the Donation was part of a food drive, lookup in the Food Drive No. field to select the associated food drive.

 

  1. Fill in the other fields on the General FastTab as needed, such as Reason Code or Responsible person. If Reason Code Mandatory is toggled in the Donation Setup, select a Reason Code to designate why the product is being returned.

 

  1.  Move to the Shipping FastTab and fill in the other field as needed.

 

 

 

Location Code: Enter the Location where the product will be received. The Location Code entered here will flow to the donation order return lines.

 

Order Handling Group Code: This field will default from the donor and can be overridden if required. This field typically identifies how the order will be handled.

 

Order Routing Group Code: This field will default from the donor and can be overridden if required. This field typically identifies how the order will be routed.

 

Donation Return Order Lines (Subform)

 

  1. Move to the lines of the donation return order. Here you specify which items are being returned. Select the appropriate Type from the drop-down list. In the case of donation return orders, item would be the normal selection.

 

  1. Enter Item No. you wish to return or hit F4 to get a list of your items.

 

  1.  If a Reason Code was not entered in the Header, select a Return Reason Code or press F4 to get a list of your return codes.

 

  1. Enter the Location that the Item will be returned from.

 

Note: If using Branches, be sure to show the Branch Code column and to select the appropriate Branch.

 

  1. Enter the quantity to be returned in the Quantity field.

 

  1. Enter or select Pallet No. you wish to return. If you are not palletizing Items, then your Pallet No. field will be blank. In this case, you may wish to select the Lot No. you are returning. Once the Pallet No. (or Lot No.) is selected, the Bin, Lot and other information from the original Pallet will auto-fill on the line.

 

  1. Fill in the other fields on the Line, as needed.

  

 

  1. Be sure to confirm that all the data has been entered correctly, especially paying attention to the No., location, and quantity.

 

Note: The user may want to post the shipment separately and wait for the acknowledgement from the donor before posting the Donation Credit Memo (Invoice). Either way the product is removed from available inventory after the posting process has been run.

 

  1. Alternatively, you can utilize the Get Posted Document Lines to Reverse to have Ceres create the lines automatically. On the donation return order, select Get Posted Document Lines to Reverse.

  

 

  1. Select the Document Type Filter to obtain the lines that you would like to select from and then select the lines that you would like copied to the donation return order. Click OK.

  

 

  1. The lines are copied to the donation return order. Note that the document number copied from has been added on a separate line. Edit the line as needed prior to posting.

  

 

  1. To post the donation return order, select Post or Post and Print. Select Yes to post the donation return order and remove the product from inventory.
