ION Reporting

A new report has been added to ION in eoStar called the Backorders Report. This report allows for the reporting of all backorder requests.

Along with the inclusion of the new report, a new Remaining Allocations column has been added to several reports in ION including:

  • Depletion
  • Inventory Days on Hand
  • Inventory Levels
  • Sales | Inventory

The Sell only via allocations tab was added to the ION Item Information tab of all ION reports that include item level information.

For more information, visit ION Backorders on wiki-eoStar.

Backorder Screen

In Orders, you’ll find that the Backordered Items screen has been modified. The screen now provides a list of all the products that have backorders. These backordered items are divided into 3 categories:

  • Able to release
  • Able to release partially
  • No inventory

For more thorough instructions, visit Releasing Backorders at wiki-eoStar.

FIFO Changes

A new checkbox has been added to the Product > Record > More panel of Product Records called Exclude from FIFO. This checkbox allows a product to be flagged as not to be used for FIFO calculation. This means that transactions for this product will instead pull their cost from the auto or manual cost.

For more information, visit FIFO Costing at wiki-eoStar.
