Inventory prediction and Stock Items

This forum has helped me a lot to get an understanding of Sambapos v5 and I got most worked out thanks to the impressive replies to many options. It is clear that Sambapos is highly configerable and allows its users to make many things happen. I like this approach compared to many other POS systems that are kind of take it or leave it. However, I have been struggling with what possibly for many here is very simple, but searching stock, inventory, etc following tutorials I get the following to work but not the number of items in stock. Let me explain:

  1. Either through warehouse or inventory transactions I can purchase inventory items such as Coke
  2. When checking warehouse I can see it added in inventory pre-diction.
  3. When “selling” it with the POS it properly reduced the pre-dicted value.
  4. When closing the work period and creating and end-of day report, I update the stock count.
  5. HOWEVER! When looking in Warehouse it never gives a value for “in stock”

So question is, how can I also see what is in stock in Warehouse (it has a Stock column).
Thank you in advance and really sorry if this should have been posted elsewhere.

I believe that Inventory Prediction becomes InStock after your close your work period and start a new one.


Yes that is correct when you close work period you do your end of day it will reflect in stock when you start your next work period.

Thank you both very much. Issue solved. I can now try some more advanced inventory tracking options. The basics now work as expected. To moderators this topic can now be closed.
