Would it be possible to enhance the extensible Shopify connector for Business Central to display the quantity of parent BOM items that can be manufactured? In Business Central, we already have the functionality to calculate the production quantity of parent products based on the quantities of their associated child products. So, I was thinking, why not use this "able to make parent" quantity as the value for our inventory in Shopify?

By doing so, we can have a more accurate representation of available stock on our Shopify store, reflecting the actual number of parent products that can be assembled using the available child components. This integration could greatly benefit our inventory management and provide customers with more reliable stock information, improving their shopping experience.

Thank you for this suggestion! Currently this is not on our roadmap. We are tracking this idea and if it gathers more votes and comments we will consider it in the future. Best regards, Business Central Team



This would be excellent.Currently I have to set BOM parents to "Continue selling when out of stock" in Shopify, and just hope that I have sufficient child items to be able to honour that.
