Backorders for Customers
How do you keep track of customer backorders? There is no check balance against the inventory when finalizing a sale, other than the non-effective warning, that disappears after any action. If I sell 15 items and I only have 7 in stock, without looking up that item in inventory I cannot tell our stock levels to create a "Special Order".
Secondly, attaching "Special Orders" to existing PO's.
Example, I'm selling 30 pieces, only have 7 in stock, but have 56 on order. I want to take the 7 in stock, backorder 23 for the customer. Then tag 23 pieces on the incoming order for this sale, so that when the order is received the receiver know to take out the 23 pieces and inform the salesperson to call the customer.
