Global Reorder Points - Set to look at Inventory on Sales Order? (Enterprise)



Is there a way to set the Global Reorder Points to take inventory on sales orders into account? 

I currently have Global Reorder Points (GRO) set up for inventory items in Quickbooks Enterprise Manufacturing and Wholesale 21.0. 


Currently, inventory on hand doesn't decrease until an item is invoiced. I would like to have the GRO alert happen BEFORE the item is invoiced - for example, when the item is added to a Sales Order.

That way, the alert would sound earlier, giving us more lead time to purchase inventory.


Thanks in advance.
