You can calculate shortage status with a report or directly on a single order and especially the single order is something you’d like when you start shipping. Let’s take an example. We do have two sales orders here.

This is what happens in the video

They are both with conflict stock and I just run the report so it’s freshly calulated. If I open the sales order in here, you can see that all items are conflict stock and for instance, item number 1050 has 4 on it.

Let’s look at this item 1050. Just to see what is happening in here. And I do know that I have 10 on inventory on this item, but I do have 12 on sales orders.

That’s why it’s conflicting because shipping one of the sales order will make the other one to be partial delivery. So I cannot ship both of them. That’s why they are named conflict stock. So if I ship either one of them, the other one won’t be able to get one. But right now I could ship either one of them. So they’re both conflict stock and this means if I ship one of the sales orders, let’s just ship this one.
