Dear vtiger enthusiasts,

Here is the user manual for our quick import plugin for Sales Order module of vtiger.


Vtiger CRM by default does not have the import and export option for inventory records. Hence the vTigress team started out by making a tool for importing and exporting inventory records. As a by product of this, we were able to create what are called quick import plug-ins for Sales order, Purchase order, Quotes and Invoice module on vtiger.

Presenting the Purchase order quick import plug in for vtiger5.4 that imports the mandatory fields and handles error records also.
