I apologize if this has been requested in the past. Couldn’t find it.
I have product01 under my Inventory Items. Say I have 8 in stock. I want to assign the individual eights elements a serial number. In practice, I would scan this in using a bar-code scanner. Nothing too fancy, I wouldn’t think? Then again, I’m not a dev.
That would be non-negotiable functionality for my needs. I would also need to be able to sort by serial number and receive the date it was purchased from the supplier, which supplier, that kinda stuff. Mostly for warranty purposes. Basic query.
Now, maybe a more advanced feature I’m going to request:
We all know product prices vary over time. If I purchase product01 with serial number 001 for $1, say I sell it to my customer for $2. A week later my price to purchase a part with serial number 002 is $2, and I have to sell it to my customer for $3 or $4 or 150% or something.
What I would want to do is use my barcode scanner to scan into invoices the part serial number instead of selecting the product. This is simply so I’m not relying on one field (Sale Price). Instead, maybe I could exchange Sale Price instead for a markup percentage or a flat addition in the edit menu of an individual inventory item. Then, I can scan the product’s serial number and manager will add the markup.
Then I won’t have to worry about profit margins anymore because customers always get a fair markup, and saves me time having to think about new totals.
