With graphical inventory profile, you can view different items, profiles of course, but you can also view them together.

So if I’m entering a sales line here, quantity eight, and it provides a warning for me, I might want to view the inventory profile for this item to see what goes wrong.

And I can see I have some negative periods, but maybe I could substitute this item with another item because we have items that are very much alike, and it’s okay for the customer to get another item if he can have it now.

First of all, I could enter the other item number to view the profile of that item to see that we have seven on inventory, but I don’t know if it’s enough. Maybe I can even add the two item or provide the two item. There might be so much alike that it’s only the wrapping or text for the user manual that is different depending on how your item look. So I could run the graphical profile and I could also view both items at the same time just by entering more than one item number here to see how it looks.

So in this scenario, I can see the profile for both item and my inventory is one as the least. So this is possible if I can substitute or mix the two different items. So this way you can add as many items as you want into the filter and see the profile for many items.
