When you run one of the shortage status setup or reports either for a sales order or a production order, you can determine different set up in here, for instance, you could say it’s only running until 15th of December like this and you run it and this will maintain a set up for you as a user.

This is what happens in the video

This means if you run the other report now the shortage on production order, it will inherit that date and it also means if you look into the actual setup where you can change it manually in here.

You can see this free field updated in here. And the reason we have it in here is because this is also the information that you use when you open a specific order and run the shortage status. It doesn’t pop up with a request page.

So once you have run the report and after that you run a single order, it will inherit the information you added to the report the last time.
