If you are using
Delivery Notes or
Goods Receipts tabs, Manager would create new columns under your
Inventory Items tab called
Qty to receive and
Qty to deliver.
The purpose of these columns is to track movement of goods between your business, customers or supplier.
Unfortunately, enabling these tabs would mean now you have to record
Delivery Notes and
Goods Receipts for all inventory items when received from suppliers or shipped to customers. No exceptions otherwise
Qty to receive or
Qty to deliver would continue increasing indefinitely.
If you want to use
Delivery Notes to generate documents for customers but not necessarily track qty to be delivered you can’t.
Or if you have many inventory items and want to track qty to be delivered for a few of them. Not all. You can’t.
Another issue was that merely enabling a tab would change your inventory qty on hand figures which would come as a surprise to many users.
The latest version (21.4.59) is fixing all these issues by simply allowing to decide for which inventory items to track
Qty to receive and/or
Qty to deliver. This is served by two new checkboxes on inventory item form.
These checkboxes are only visible when
Delivery Notes or/and
Goods Receipts tabs are enabled.
