How do I avoid manually creating hundreds of reordering rules?

Hi, I'm still getting to grips with this and I get how reordering rules work. I created a product (electronic components) and a hundred or so variations for the different parts, now I want automated procurement requests for those parts. Except I can't add a reordering rule for "electronic components", I have to do it for each and every variation which just seems.... dumb.

How can I get that done without needing to enter hundreds of rules manually?

Hello Chris,

If you don't want to use reordering rules, then you can configure all your products as make to order which will create the procurement that will have demanded quantity.

Nope, doesn't work. It creates a producrement for the full product when I need a manufacturing order, and recursive orders/procurements for all the sub components of that product.

I also found this function annoying -- You create a product, then have to leave the screen and goto "Reordering Rule".  It will be nice that "Reordering rule" is incorporated into Warehouse > Products, so this can be done as part of creating a new item (like adding other product details).
