Backorders are order rules that cannot be picked yet because of the stock levels. Backorders will be created when an order is closed and the product is not available, or when partial delivery is not allowed and one of the products of the order has not enough stock.

Process backorders

When backorders are available in the warehouse, backorders will not automatically be converted to picklists. You can do this in the Picqer interface or you can call this 'process backorders' request. This will generate picklists for all available backorders.
