Sales: Automatically print backorder

Our problem at work is when we invoice customers and print the file, typically we are too busy and forget to print backorders for our records.


I work at a warehouse, we have all picking slips (orders) on a clipboard on the desk and throughout the day we take a picking slip and grab required products and send them to the customer. Backorders go on a separate clipboard so when stock comes in we grab the required picking slip and send it out.


We also have a tray of backorders. (1000's of different products so it's a common occurance). And 3 days out of 5 a week (probably more) the storemen get yelled at for not having a backorder picking slip then having to go through our item reports to find out which customer the product was ordered for.


So what I would like to happen is when printing an invoice it would print the backorder as well. Although we have set it up to change backorder ID# to different invoice number as having the same number as the invoice was getting very complicated with the bank.


Regardless, it would be great if somehow we could set it up to perform this task also. Perhaps if after the printing interface for the invoice appeared, another printing interface for the backorder appeared.


Any ideas if this is possible?
