Visible Stock availability typing up PO's and sales

The main reason for starting this topic is the need to have the available stock show in a column while typing up PO's. It would be nice for this to be an option at the least! 


(It would also be helpful for typing up sales orders - the available quantity is only visible if you add items line by line. Ideally this would show after the product is ordered show you're able to view any shortages before authorizing the "ORDER" stage). 


Back to purchase orders though - when creating PO's in DEAR, we always have to have a separate tab open to view product availability. It's super helpful to have that number visible next to each product listed line by line so we don't have to reference a separate sheet, page, tab, etc to see what's currently in stock. 


Thanks!

  • This would be incredibly helpful and every other system we've looked into supports this feature...

  • How are only a few people voting for this? This is really basic.  We are not even talking giving visibility into future inventory availability like is now available with trade gecko, CIN7, etc.

  • Yes, agree.


    3 kinds of stock would be best:

    - on hand

    - available

    - incoming (confirmed PO qty with ETA)

  • You need this information to help troubleshoot. Ensure you're not ordering 100 of something when somebody else already has 100, or there is 100 in stock somewhere even though the warehouse says there isn't. When you add a line item (or view a PO created automatically) this information needs to be there easily available to see. Just the extra columns you can turn on and off will do.

  • I think DEAR will need to address this as every single major competitor solution does. If they don't, I and other customers will have no choice but to move on.


    It is completely ridiculous in an advanced order to have to click between fulfilments and invoices to try and figure out the status of lines from an order.


    We are not asking for brilliance, we are just asking for best practice circa 1990's.
