Allowing locations will allow non-inventory items to be added to Requisition Worksheets so they can be requested by someone and then placed on a PO by purchasing.
it will also be required to allow non-inventory items to be used on assembly orders and production bills of material. This is a highly desired use where these items can be on a production order to show an employee supply items are used but not have the same inventory / consumption requirements of a normal inventory item.
Would be great to be able to use them with job journal lines too
TableRelation of field "No." in "Job Journal Line" is Item : Type=CONST(Inventory)
Our company had this issue during our Sandbox testing and I had to recreate any non-inventory items FALSELY as inventory items in order to workaround the problems listed.
Will also solve half of this issue, which I greatly need: https://experience.dynamics.com/ideas/idea/?ideaid=dcd8b2f0-d66c-e911-80e7-0003ff68cb40
Allow the "Non-Inventory" items for Warehouse Shipments and Transfer Orders as well.
A company builds, let's say, swimming pools.
Obviously, a lot of items need to be delivered to the customers site. This is all part of a huge Sales Order (it is more complicate than that, but for the example, that is sufficient.)
Alora, there is quite a number of items where real stock management is a kind of an overkill (like counting screws, nuts, bolts, user manuals and stuff like that).
These items are rarely purchased, nor should be stock counted, nor have a value. Nevertheless, there is the need to put them on the Warehouse Shipment in order to tell the guys in the warehouse to still deliver these items as they are required for a certain project.
These "Warehouse Shipments" can come from Sales Orders, Transfer Orders, Purchase Returns, Assembly Orders.
I come from a Dynamics GP background. We use this functionality extensively in GP to drive GL posting. This is lacking in BC.
