We recently received a request from SELV implementation for a new improvement that we think would be very reasonable to also include in the Core project. We need to add a possibility to hide lots with 0 quantity to make the process of creating inventories less tedious(deleting all items with stock 0 or adding 0 in the existing stock).
The main issue is that as the system is used, the number of lots with lots with quantity 0 will increase, making the process of creating inventories extremely tedious (deleting items with stock 0, or adding 0 in the existing stock).
- If a lot of a product reaches stock 0, the user can eliminate it from the inventories and stock cards by clicking the remove button currently displayed in the physical inventory for all products with stock 0. Please take a look at the screenshot below.
- If a product is eliminated, it should not appear in the stock cards and in future inventories.
- User should be able to add a product previously eliminated by following the normal processes (through physical inventories or receive). If a product that was eliminated is re-added, all its historic movements need to be displayed in the stock card.
What we think would be the most reasonable is to add a flag to a lot that would identify if this lot is hidden or not. If lot is hidden, then it’s not displayed either in physical inventory or in the stock card. We would use SELV budget for that since this improvement is really important for them. As this is something that we would like to address soon, I think that the best approach would be to do it as a part of a patch release.
Please let me know what do you think about it.
