Inventory Counts: Seeing Variance Costs Before Reconciling
Could inventory costs display on the Totals, Missed, and Reconcile pages of Inventory Counts before reconciling?
Currently, these pages display only +/- unit quantities as the count is conducted. In order to analyze expected +/- cost variance before reconciling, Lightspeed's recommendation is to export one of these pages and compare it to a previously exported Asset report. Besides that the reports sort in a different manner, this method introduces lots of room for error and is needlessly time consuming.
This is a strange omission in Lightspeed's inventory management capabilities and is problematic for any large scale, long term use.
Our short term workaround is to enlist our IT friends to apply a script outside of Lightspeed that will apply costs. Does anyone have other workarounds or ideas?
