    1- I add milk expense
    2- add the cheeses manufactured in inventory
    3- When I sell the cheese doubles the cost

  6. CONSIGNMENT STOCK

    A large number of producers supply on consignment to their distribution partners. This is not a taxable sale, and if it is treated as warehouse inventory then you will not know where it is or must treat hundreds of distributors as warehouses. You need a consignment feature with Sales that allows you to park and track stock at your resellers

  8. item group under item group

    I should be able to create nested item groups.

    Currently it allows me to create only one level of grouping, i.e. create a group and bunch multiple items under it.

    What we need is that I should be able to create a group, then create multiple groups under that group and so on. This will further improve our inventory management.

    Thanks!

  13. Inventory adjustment - Search

    When looking for an existing adjustment, it gets very complex because you have to go through all the list which just grows over time. It would be great to be able to select and item and date range to see only the adjustments that fall in that selection.

  15. Consignment

    Our vendors (farmers) transfer their "annual" crop harvested to us on "Consignment". The items are billed as and when the items are sold for the quantity sold. The received quantity reflects in the inventory even though it is not billed.

    It is a industry wide practice to avoid distress sale by farmers to avoid low prices during peak season.

  16. Cost price and markup or margin on item section.

    On the item section, there's only adding rate (like selling price).
    Base on the cost or purchasing would be great feature if we can enter the cost price, setup the markup or margin and having group items. (like assembly line)
    Also if you can add barcode scanning feature and or S/N with barcode would be great.
    Right now I can only enter the selling price, and it's hard to remember how much was my cost or average cost and each customer can have different level for pricing.
    In fact I am doing this whit Excel and it's simple formula in…

  18. Enable inventory tracking after transactions have been recorded

    I would like to see an update where you can enable inventory tracking on items which did not previously have it enabled, even after transactions have been made with this item.

    You would simply set the system to record the inventory on the item from that day forward.

    The reason for this is for example if you have a company which drop ships a particular item, then decides one day to inventory it - you cannot utilize that item already in books and have to create another one. This can become a mess, especially since you cannot use duplciate sku's…

  19. Stock/Inventory Value in hand at the Dashboard

    The first items at the Dashboard are Receivables and Payables, it gives a good overview of the business currently, but for a products dealing company like ours, it is incomplete without the stock value in hand.

  20. inventory custom fields

    In the European Union, when a company's sales is over €650k p.a., and its purchases are over €500k p.a., that company must report for VIES, and Intrastat.
    Intrastat requires certain fields such as
