I was just checking out your plugin and looks really amazing.
We are an agency and build a lot WooCommerce stores for our customers. Several of our clients have requested features like purchase orders, multi inventory locations (shop branches etc...) without the need to use an extra ERP solution, so it seems like ATUM is a good fit!
But while testing ATUM, I noticed some unfinished usage for the stock locations.
When adding the stock location on the product, it seems not doing anything with that information, except just filling in the information and telling the system it belongs to location A and location B as example.
What's the usage of this feature?
I was hoping when I create a PO and/or updating product inventory it would allow me to choose WHERE the stock belongs to as x pieces to location A and y pieces to location B as example but it does absolutely nothing and seems useless as of now?
Can you please kindly elaborate what/why this stock locations is used for?
Some of my customers are retail stores with multiple branches, and the ultimate goal is to manage the stock from each branch + a global bulk inventory location into WooCommerce, so when a customer purchase online, they can ship the stock from the bulk inventory (distribution center), but if a customer decide to pickup in a local store so the stock is reduced from the branch it's local inventory.
At the same time we are also connecting the POS to each local branch so in case a sale is happening in-store, the online stock is updated realtime and vice-versa.
Also, it would be great if we can show the available stock for each stock location on the product single page.
Not by default everything in full details, but a simple link/button that says "show stock details"
When they click it, the screen expands/modal popup with details per shop/branch like this as example:
This one is a bit too detailed with the maps and everything, but a simple list with each shop and a mentioning if the product is available / not in stock OR (depending on the settings) show the exact stock levels and qty available per shop.
Thanks for letting me know!
