Currently, it is possible to post a Sales Invoice from Job Planning Lines that are of Type "Budget and Billable" prior to consuming what is on that Line (e.g. an Item).

The result of posting such a Sale Invoice is that none of the inventory controls are enforced (e.g. Negative Inventory, Serial Number, quantities in the given Location, etc.). This may result in a sale of the same Item more than once and, consequently, puts companies using Jobs in an awkward situation with their clients when they are unable to deliver an Item because it is not available, which, they thought, was available.

SOLUTION: To address this, in the “Job Setup” add an option to prevent from creating and/or posting a Sales Invoice for Planning Lines of Type “Budget and Billable” IF the related consumption has not been posted yet.
