Send email when inventory is low

Posted on by Microsoft Employee

I have been put in charge of making sure that our brochures are on stock, and our other marketing material such as merchandise.
Since i dont use AX, I really want to automate this process and use AX as little as possible.

My dream senario is that i can set an e-mail alert for all the item numbers i am responsible for. So when a brochure goes below 50 items in stock i will get an email.

I have been told this is not possible. is this true?
We use Microsoft dynamics ax 2012. I dont want the system to automaticlty order new brochures since alot of times there is changes i have to make to the designfile. and i prefer to order using my Outlook. so all i need is a notist that its time to look at a specific brochure etc.

Edit: I works as a designer, so please “Explain it like im 5” pastedimage1652959093120v1.png

    Hi ChristianB,

    There is no standard alert available for this at the moment. You thus have to create it yourself. (customization)

    However, you can better fill the minimum on hand per product and then use the report 'Critical on-hand inventory' to have this as an alert list. The report can be found in the inventory and warehouse menu. It is possible to run this report in batch and mail the output to users.
