On-hand Inventory button - does it exist?

Posted on by 76
Hi All
 
 
But I can't find it in Dynamics 365 Business Central.
 
Did it get culled / never existed / over written?
 
Apparently, it was supposed to show as a new button in quotes, orders & invoices which would help us immensely but I can't find it.  Maybe it wasn't in Business Central?
 
Does anyone know about this magic button?
 
Thank you
 
Katarina

    Hi Saurav
     
    I apologise for not getting back to this earlier.
     
    There is an app using traffic light system for sales orders, indicating which order can be fulfilled, which is short and which product has no inventory. I was after something like that for quotes.
     
    I am aware a quote is not a sales and any forecast is based on multiple variables but we are dealing with rather large quotes / order - on average 50+ lines. So utilising the function "Item Availability by ..." is very time consuming and it is easy to miss a line.
     
    The "button" I was referring to was one referenced in an article, but as it was stated previously, it was for "Finance and Operations"

    The reason we are looking for this functionality is that a quote might become a sales order if we can supply within a certain time.

    Hi Katarina,
     
    I am just trying to understand before I suggest you something. 
     
    Is my understanding correct - 
     
    1. A New button available in Sales Quote Screen, when user clicked on it.
    2. When user clicks that button, a new page opens which allow user to enter item no and select company.
    3. Once these details are entered screen shows available inventory for item in the selected company.
      (* if no company specified it displays inventory of current company).
     
    Is there anything else?
     
    Regards,
    Saurav Dhyani

    Hi Saurav
     
    we are after a way that we can have an inventory forecast for the quotes. For individual lines it is simple by looking under details but for quotes with 50+ lines it is cumbersome.
     
    We are aware that quotes are just a proposal and cannot be relied upon but at the time of quoting it would be could to know if we can deliver within 10 days or 12 weeks.
     
    Does that make sense?

    Hi Katarina,
     
    Based on the article that you have added it seems in D365Sales it was pulling inventory value from CDS.
     
    Are you looking to get the inventory from same BC Database for selected company and have values displayed to you?

    Hi All
     
    thank you for the time to reply. We are aware of all the functionalities you have listed but neither is helpful in the quote scenario of up to 200 lines.
     
    Martin answered the question, just not the way I wanted to hear it.
     
    But I appreciate our time.

    depending on the scenario, the item availability by function can be found in multiple places. If you on a sales order, You can go to the line function and find it there. this way, it's easy to find out how item inventory is kept in BC.

    To add more information, you can also view the on hand inventory by going to the Item List and selecting one of the following actions:
     
     
    You can also create a filter in the Item List to view on hand inventory. You can then save this filter to re-use it.

    Hello KHayston,
     
    You can use the 'factbox' panel on the relevant pages, there are details on inventory based on the selected sales line.

    The article is about Finance and Operations, which is different product than Business Central.
     
    Moved from D365 general forum. Please ask questions about Business Central here, in the Business Central forum.
