By activating and using the “Inventory Transfers” tab found under Customise below the Settings tab
But first, do you have just one stock location, if yes
Then you don’t have to setup any locations under Settings - Inventory Locations
By not setting up a location, you remove the “unspecified location” status as long as you also don’t use the “Goods Receipts” & Delivery Notes" tab also.
Also, do you need to use the “Goods Receipts” & Delivery Notes" tab ?
If no, then de-activate them under Customise and you will remove the “unspecified location” status
To summarise, if you don’t use Inventory Locations, Goods Receipts and Delivery Notes then the unspecified location status wont appear.
However, if you do use any of these, Inventory Locations, Goods Receipts and Delivery Notes, then the unspecified location will appear and you will need to the Inventory Transfers tab to relocate the stock.
@lubos - there needs to be some adjustments within the Inventory module to better cope with changes.
if Inventory Locations, Goods Receipts or Delivery Notes have been activated prior to the entry of starting inventory, then location should also be allowed to be entered at this stage otherwise the workflow gets duplicated - First the entry of the starting balances and second the need to transfer all that same inventory from unspecified to specified location.
If you have an existing location and then open a second location (car spare parts with 1000’s of items) then the existing inventory should default to a specified location rather then being dumped into unspecified.
and then requiring the user to transfer all that inventory back to where it already existed.
