  1. Take into account Committed Stock in Reorder Report

    We have a longer shipping delay and a lot of orders coming in daily. We need the reorder report to include committed stock in order to be ahead of our inventory.

    Example:
    Items in stock: 50
    Reorder point: 40
    On Sales Order: 35 (Committed Stock)
    On Purchase Order: 10

    That's 50 items in stock, minus 30 committed stock we're at 20 available stock.
    I already have 10 on a PO so to get back up to 40 I would need to order 20 more.

    Basic inventory management equation:
    In stock items - Committed Stock + On Purchase Order - Reorder…

  2. include a feature to enable a mandatory hierarchical approval for inventory adjustments.

    I see this as an important feature to control unauthorised adjustments, incorrect stock adjustment and/or stock loss.

  3. Show reorder point on Contacts: Vendors - Reorder Items.

    It is good to know what we need to order and from whom, but we still need to know how many! Otherwise, we must look up every item individually to check the ROP. It would also be good to have the ROP on the inventory summary report.

  5. credit note for post sale discount should not effect inventory

    I am issuing Credit note with reason Post Sale Discount, discount need to be given on item sold not returned for a certain percentage.

    1- Discount percentage should be considered on rate of item
    2- Quantity sold which was reduced earlier should not be increased due to discount

  6. Distinction between raw material and finished goods and track raw material consumption based on finished goods produced.

    We receive goods in kg and we convert them into smaller packs of numbers. It is difficult to track inventory in this manner. also, we buy packaging material which is primary to our product. whenever we sell these smaller no's pack, we sell them in this primary packaging that we bought (cardboard boxes). But when we make the sale, we only select the main item in invoice and not the cardboard boxes and thus we cannot track its inventory. How can this be solved?

  7. Integrate Zoho Inventory with mail server like Outlook or Gmail

    Hi, thought I'd already suggested this but can't find it in my suggestions. The facility to send estimates, acknowledgement, purchase orders etc through Zoho is great BUT we use MS Outlook (Office 365) as our mail server so currently when we send an estimate or other document we have to create it in Zoho Books, produce a PDF and send it as an attachment in Outlook. This creates a whole load of unnecessary work. Would be better if we could "point Zoho" at our Outlook and then we have once place to search for sent documents. Also, some of our…

  10. COST PRICE

    We import products outside country. We must pay for local charges after making customs declaration, and trucking fee to get cargo from port to warehouse.

  11. need to manage raw materials costs, availability and cost of finished products

    For example:

    We Buy raw material (A, B, C, D) to make Finished Product (Z).
    Everytime Finished Good is Same. But the raw material is different.

    1) Z = A+B
    2) Z = C+D
    3) Z = A+B+C
    4) Z - C+D+A
    Like this
    Any Solution
    1- I add milk expense
    2- add the cheeses manufactured in inventory
    3- When I sell the cheese doubles the cost

  12. At the available inventory of an item, change from "Total stock at hand" to "Available for sales".

    When I am offering a product and I see next to the item the inventory at hand, it looks like I have product to sell because it is in the warehouse. But somethimes the Item is reserved and there is no product to sell anymore. When you click the inventory number you can look in the inventory and see what is available for sales but I think it is a better idea to have that number next to every item.

  13. Add a feature to the inventory system, allowing you to have a variable weight of some items and

    Capability of having items with variable weight (food products such as cheese) which would use the current serial number feature with the addition of a specific weight which would calculate according to the rate per measure (Such a Kg or Ltr) for example.

  14. Allow displaying SKU numbers and Bin locations of items on the picking list

    Please allow the ability to enter the bin or shelf location of each item whenever a new item is created. This location should then be allowed to display on the picking list for easy location of the item. This is very critical for wholesale customers and will ensure the loyalty os Zoho inventory csutomers like me.

  15. We already definied the Organizations Roles, but, there is a diffence with Zoho CRM where yo can define Hierarchy. We need define hierarchy

    We already definied the Organizations Roles, but, there is a diffence with Zoho CRM where yo can define Hierarchy.

    We need define hierarchy in Zoho Books e Inventory, for ejemple, several seller reports to a manager, each seller can only see their accounts, contacts and potencials, but can not see accounts, contacts the anothers sellers.
    The manager can see their own accounts, contaccts, potencial, and the accounts, contacts and potencial the seller what they depend on.
