A shortage status field on both the sales header and the sales line is displaying the shortage status on the order and the line.

This is what happens in the video

So let’s take an example order number 10,024.

It’s displayed as a conflict stock and this basically means if we open the order, checking the lines that at least one of the lines has the shortage status conflict stock as the worst status on the sales order lines, and this is transferred to the sales order header. So in this sales order, one of the items is actually available to ship without creating any backlogs on other sales orders whereas the other one, if we ship this, it means that other sales orders might not be able to ship completely.
