You can make use of this tool to add all the Out of Stock products and/or the products that reached their low stock threshold and/or the products that are in restock status and belong to the same supplier.

But you can also add any product manually by using the top search and selecting them one by one.

Note that if you have selected a supplier for the purchase order, only the products set to this supplier and all those with no supplier assigned will be displayed on the search results (unless you disable this restriction from ATUM Settings >> Purchase Orders).

From here you can change their cost and the quantity you want to purchase.
