In all production orders there is an option "Release to warehouse". This will initiate the raw material picking for the production order. However, the "Release to warehouse" requires that an order has reserved materials already. This is a gap in many businesses that do manual reservation and only want to do reservation at a specific point in time.

The workaround is to run the batch job "Automatic release of BOM and formula lines" since this will reserve materials as well. However, it is a lot of work to run this batch job and do filtering for ever order.

The idea is to simply enable the "Release to warehouse" to reserve materials as well. This will also help if not all materials were reserved when status was set to released.

Thank you for your feedback. Currently this is not in our roadmap; however, we are tracking it and if we get more feedback and votes, we may consider it in the future.
