Improvements to Inventory
Auto Average Inventory Unit Calculation, as Well as Unit Price Updates to Inventory only Effecting Requests Going Forward.
Previously when an update was made to the Unit Price on a piece of inventory, that change in price reflected all requests involving that inventory, including orders from the past. This will now only happen on a go forward basis, so users can see the change in price over time.
This setting can be found in your general settings. When this setting is turned on, the next time you receive inventory on your inventory item, it will auto-calculate your inventory unit price. This is calculated by taking the overall cost from all inventory that was received and dividing this by the current quantity of the inventory item.
