The cashflow forecast when bringing through purchase order lines uses the header due date so multiple lines all have the same cashflow forecast date. In reality the order lines may be expected to be received at different times for example a purchase order where each line represents a monthly commitment on an annual contract.

Customers would like to see the cashflow using the expected receipt date from the lines as this accurately reflects expectations.

Actually surprised to see this issue exist...now the cashflow forecast needs a lot of manual adjustment and with many purchase orders and line items with different receipt dates this causes a lot of work.

Also on the sales side the same can be expected, Sales orders with line items with different ship dates...same issue here.

Thank you, Stephen, for the suggestion.

Thank you, Business Central Team, for considering it. In fact this is a frequent change request of our customers.
Please also consider using the delivery-date in sales orders as basis for the cashflowdate as well.
