Suppose I am a wholesaler and I just gave 5 pieces of detox capsules in consignment to a store.
I put the 5 items in the inventory log ID X as a reserved item and I decrease the main stock with 5 items.
In the central stock I will then see that the main stock is decreased by 5 and the reserved stock for the detox capsules is increased by 5. Suppose the store sells 2 pieces of detox capsules (and needs to pay me for those 2 as they are sold). I can make at that time an order for those two. Only problem is that by making an order for those two items, the main stock is automatically decreased (again) by two. So I could then import this order in the inventory log ID X and increase the stock by two. But then in the inventory log ID X you have an extra line with two more items of the detox capsules, so the reserved stock is also updated by two. I then have to manually delete the line of the two items to remove them from the reserved stock. (When the remaining items are sold by the store I can repeat the same process). This is too much of a work around and error prone. But is this the way how it is ment to be done when you reserve a product for a customer and then later sell it?
I also saw there is a bug in the inventory log (demo). When you add a product that is stored in multiple inventories, the increase/decrease buttons disappear when you select a product in the inventory log. The other products in the same inventory log (with no multiple warehousing) also are missing the increase/decrease buttons. Only when I delete the multi-inventory item and press the 'recalculate' button, the increase/decrease buttons reappear.
