When we are transferring stock from one location to the other it does not hold any stock in transit. For Example - if we raise a transfer from Melbourne location to Brisbane location and save it, it does not reduce the stock from Melbourne location and show it ‘on order’ for Brisbane. It could take up to a week for the stock to physically arrive in Brisbane. So nowhere in the availably reports can we see if there is any stock arriving into Brisbane during those 7 days. When we ‘complete’ the transfer it reduces the stock in Melbourne and adds it to Brisbane which is ok when the stock has physically arrived in the Brisbane location. Is there a way we could see the stock in transition
Stock "In Transit" is a feature I'd like to see added to the Stock Transfer capability as well. We ship from our main warehouse on the west coast of the US to several other warehouses across the country. It takes at least one week to ship across the country, during that time that inventory isn't available and we need to see an indication of that.
I don't think using the "On Order" column is correct for this situation as that column is related to new stock on order from the manufacturer/distributor...stock could be "on order" but not "in transit" if it becomes back ordered at the origination.
Ideally, once stock is received at the destination warehouse, it would be removed from "in transit" status. Which brings up another weakness: there's no accounting for the stock at the destination, the current system just assumes it's received as shipped. It's like the stock is selected for transfer, transferred, received and accounted for all in one step.
