With the shortage functionality, it’s easy to set the expectation also between the warehouse employee and the salespeople.

This is what happens in the video

So once you run the shortage status report, it would be easy to filter on all the on stock sales orders meaning everything you can ship right now and then release those until the warehouse they could just go on and ship those.

Meanwhile, if we look at the conflict stock, somebody in the sales department or somebody with customer relations needs to prioritize those orders here. Which one is the most important as it just per document date or per whatever and somebody needs to set the prioritization and this and then inform the warehouse people to pick this one by one and recalculate the status on each order to make sure it can still be completely picked, but every orders in here cannot have because there will be conflicts when you start picking to one of them.
