Feature Request - "On Order" column in Item Search results

Adding an "On Order" column to Item Search results would be super helpful and a very easy way to see what a Retailer has on order in a given category, from a certain Supplier, or Vendor, etc.

There's already a column showing what QTY is on hand, and the On Order data is stored with the Item info, so just a simple added column would solve many problems and make Retailers' lives much easier.


Thanks for the consideration!

    Have also been requesting this!!!

    A column for Brand would also be helpful

    And seemingly very simple, from my understanding of how this system works. It would be SO helpful!

    I don't know how to tread the line between "persistent" and "annoying" but I feel if I'm not reiterating this request frequently, it won't get noticed :)

    Thanks for chiming in, Mcsporties!

    Still hoping to see some movement on this, or an explanation of why it is not being implemented. A more recent thread on this topic fails to mention that it is under review or in the works, and instead provides the same ineffective workaround that was originally provided (in a third thread I believe). This leads me to believe that no one is in fact working on this.

    Your customers really need this feature.

    More than ever some Backorder figure availability would be awesome! Any word on whether or not this has been presented as an enhancement request? It is really a fundamental, basic piece of data that is essential to managing inventory... it would seem to be a requirement for even the most basic POS inventory management system. Please consider!
