New Features for Incoming (backordered) Units
February 21, 2023
Incoming units are now shown everywhere
We made some big architectural changes behind the scenes to efficiently keep track of all incoming inventory units. These new change have now enabled us to display incoming units throughout the system in all situations where it's useful to know if more stock is already ordered and on the way.
The criteria for determining if more stock is incoming is based on your existing purchase orders. As soon as you mark a PO as "sent", we'll consider the inventory in that PO as incoming until the units are marked as received.
View incoming units when creating new orders
While creating new orders (purchase orders, invoices, sales orders, estimates), you can now easily see if any items have more stock ordered and on the way. This enables you to better understand how much stock you'll truly have in the future so you can make better buying and selling decisions.
Review incoming units for each individual location
We're also pleased to now be able to show you the total incoming units for each individual location of each individual inventory item so if you're managing stock in many different locations, you'll now have a much better understanding of what is already ordered to be replenished.
Low Stock report now takes incoming units into consideration
When you use our newly updated Low Stock report, the calculations it automatically makes for you will now take into consideration any incoming quantities so you don't need to worry about over-buying more stock when it's already been ordered.
