Physical Inventory and Actual Inventory in Revel
Once a Physical Inventory count has been finalized, the counted inventory number will be the actual inventory amount listed on the Management Console.
For example, if 10 apples are listed in actual Inventory (in the Management Console), but only 8 apples are counted in Physical Inventory, your actual inventory number will change from 10 to 8 apples. As a result, 2 apples will be marked as Waste or Damaged. On the contrary, if 8 apples are listed in actual inventory, but 10 apples are counted in physical inventory, the actual inventory will be over ridden to 10 apples. As a result, 2 apples will be marked as Received.
Please note that products NOT counted in Physical Inventory will not be modified in actual Inventory in the Management Console.
In the public release of 2.39, Revel pushed all products listed in actual Inventory to be counted for in Physical Inventory. This enhancements provided the option to preselect the Product Classes and/or Product Category/Subcategory that will be counted. As a result, if something is not counted, a prompt will appear with the following options:
- Don't complete the Physical Inventory until you can find the items that were not counted.
- Set the count to "0" for all of the products which were not counted.
- Pause the count to continue the action at a later time.
