If I ship a rental item to a customer using the transfer order, and I invoice it every month, it automatically postpone the rental date.

This is what happens in the video

So as long as the customer keeps the items and I didn’t record it back with my receiving transfer order, the rental period will continue.

So in this example I’m going to– as it is right now, the sales order will be till October, 3.

But now I’m actually going to invoice the full October month, like the customer still have the item for the full October month.

And I will expect this to postpone the rental.

So right now it says quantity to ship 3, quantity shipped 12.

And if I look in my rental relation and looking to the inbound transfer, which is the transfer order that I’m going to receive it back to. I can see the posting date here is also expected to be October three, also written here somewhere on the lines.

So let’s try to do that.

I’m using my batch job rental period posting, and I’m only using it for this sales order.

I’m going to post it until October 31.

Normally, this would be done of course, if I’m sure that the customer will keep the item until October 31.

And it will post a shipment and a sales invoice.

If I look at the sales order line now, I can see that my ending date is October 31.

The quantity shipped is actually 43.

The quantity to ship is 1 because it expect that I’m keeping it another day because I didn’t finish the returning transfer order.

So it automatically updated all my information in here, and if I’m looking into my inbound transfer order in here, I can see that my posting date is now November 1, meaning that I will expect to get this back at the earliest at November one.

So each month, I can run a batch job posting all my sales order postponing the rentals.
