Create a "Special - FEFO - Batch" costing method (/ inventory control method)

Currently, it is not possible to override the Auto-Pick selection for a FEFO - Batch item. Human error dictates that from time-to-time, people will mistakenly choose the wrong batch of a product when picking. For that reason, there needs to be a way to override a FEFO - Batch auto-pick selection.

I would like to make a feature request for another costing/inventory method called: "Special - FEFO - Batch" (and maybe change "Special - Batch" to "Special - FIFO - Batch") which would by default select items for Auto-Pick using a FEFO-Batch method, but which may be overridden. Instead, the standard FEFO-Batch could also be changed to allow the choice to be overridden, thereby doing away with the Auto-Pick selection not being able to be overridden.

Absolutely needed.  We sell some products in units of one but our distributors order in cartons of 90.  Id we have stock less than 90, we are unable to supply the carton to the distributor because of the FIFO issue.

Really need to override the Auto Pick. Sometimes we have to manipulate the batch selection for some reasons.

Any update on this feature request?

Creates a lot of pain in practical situations, for example:

batch 1 stock = 100

batch 2 stock = 555

if you do a sale of 500, might want to take it all from batch 2 instead of splitting and having 2 separate BB dates for 1 customer order.

We were getting around this by this method which while cumbersome at least worked:

At the Picking stage:

1. add the quantity before selecting the product

2. Adding the desired product/batch from the dropdown

Now that DEAR has rolled out a new update they've "fixed" this "bug" and now when you follow the same procedure the quantity is reduced to zero making it impossible to select the desired batch.

I hope you're listening DEAR. We need this feature!
