SO shall be having facility to allocate qty so that that qty becomes reserve and untill unallocated shall not be available for other so
Richard Faulkner commented
At the moment "Qty Available" which displays when entering an item onto a sales order is misleading as it is actually stock level. "Qty Available" should take into account "quantity in demand" from other open sales orders.
Seems the data field for "Qty in demand" is already there as it can be found via reports --> inventory summary. Problem is its a manual process and we have over 200 items. Does Zoho Inventory deal with this request?
My other point, should this be implemented, is that It should not be restrictive to Sales Order Processing. A further nice trick would be that a warning is displayed if:
New Sales order quantity entered > Stock Qty - Quantity in demand
from which we can view the SO's which are creating other demand for that item and an option to proceed so we can prioritise SOP and demand.
I think the original question is the same thing asked in a different way. We need New/Open SO's to do some kind of stock allocation (or at least consideration)
