Cleaning up inventory "on-hand"
|Top Previous Next|
For Point of Sale users only...
We see a lot of databases where inventory items show a negative value quantity on hand. This is likely happening for items where you don't really care to track an accurate inventory, which is fine. However, we recommend that you CLEAR the "Quantity on hand" value for any items like this. The field must be empty, not "0", so it knows that there is no need to update the quantity (as opposed to an actual quantity of 0 on hand). This will prevent unnecessary audit trail entries, reduce sync errors, and generally make things run smoother.
Therefore I suggest you go through your Inventory Items and clear this field for any that you don't need to track the quantity of -- or at least ones that you use frequently (which probably show large negative quantities on hand right now).
