Composite items are not reflected as inventory levels (sub items) qty on hand. This makes this a useless feature
Inventory stock levels for composite items

ADMINS: Can we get an idea of whether this will be added and how soon? I need to make a decision on moving away from our current ERP/IMS and if this is going to happen soon, I will move to Zoho One. See my notes below.
100% this! I am looking to move away from our current IMS and other systems and consolidating into Zoho One and this is the one limitation that is likely going to prevent me from going forward with the move. Composite Items sales/purchases should 100% impact the inventory levels of the associated items. Or at least let us check a box within each Composite Item to do this.
Also when backordering a Composite item the PO generation should have the individual items in it not the composite SKU /Name. And if there is only one part needed it will only show the one item in the PO generated by the backorder.
Agreed. Until composite items are reflected at the individual inventory level, this feature is absolutely useless as manual entry and tracking is needed otherwise.
