How to force Base Unit of Measure for Item with Unposted Sales Entries?

Posted on by UG Leader

Good morning! We are using LS Central with Business Central On Premises.

My Receiving Department somehow keeps creating items by accident with no base unit of measure, then my Sales team somehow gets these items on their invoices on the LS Central POS. I would like to know if I can be trained on how to force the base unit of measure on an item. We have tried to implement use of Item templates, and have asked cashiers to be more careful with their invoices, however this seems to keep happening :-(

    Thank you! I will disable the other templates as we only use one, but we have other enables from the Cronus setup

    Hi

    These are for BC since I do not know about LS Central capabilities 

    Use Workflow approval for item creation. 

    Or you may need a small development here to make the field mandatory.  something like this https://yzhums.com/4940/

    If you were on SaaS you could use this free app  https://appsource.microsoft.com/en-us/product/dynamics-365-business-central/PUBID.navtilus%7CAID.9762768c-307f-4b98-9b08-7abbaea78671%7CPAPPID.9762768c-307f-4b98-9b08-7abbaea78671?tab=Overview  but maybe you can contact them to see if they have free version for on-prem

    If you only have 1 enabled Item Template the system will use it by default.  If you have multiple the User creating the Item will have to select one.

    Your other option would be to use an Approval workflow for newly created Items to ensure they have all the required data filled in before being approved for use.
