Improvement Request: QuickBooks, In the “Build Assemblies” screen, can you add a column for “Available” quantity?

Hi QuickBooks and All ,

 

To QuickBooks:  In the “Build Assemblies” screen, can you add a column for “Available” quantity?

 

(To Everyone:  If you feel this improvement would be helpful to you, please reply or put a “cheer” vote.  Thank you!)

 

QuickBooks, can you make this change so it will be in the 2020 release of QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise?

 

Problem:  When we create a work order (pending build) in QuickBooks, we see “On Hand” quantity, but not “Available” quantity.  So, we could end up creating multiple work orders without realizing we don’t have enough parts “Available” for the work orders. 

 

Solution:  Please add a column to show Available” quantity in the “Build Assemblies” screen.

 

(To get to the “Build Assemblies screen in QB Desktop Enterprise, go to menu bar Inventory - Build Assemblies.)

 

Definitions:

  1. On Hand Quantity: Parts we have in inventory.  For example, parts we could pull out of our cabinets right now.
  2. Available Quantity: Parts that are not assigned to a purpose. In other words, the parts are “Available” because they haven’t been claimed for another purpose. A purpose would be a Pending Build (Work Order) or a customer Sales Order.

 

For reference, here's the Available formula:

Available quantity = On Hand - For Assemblies (also known as On Pending Builds) - Sales Order

Hello, Dav.

 

This seems to be a duplicate post of yours. I will attach a link to my answer for other users to see.

Hi  -

 

This isn’t a duplicate request.  This request is about adding an "Available" column to the "Build Assemblies” screen.  (The other request was about adding a column for "To Be Built" quantity to the "Inventory Stock Status By Item" report.)    

 

Can you please send this request to the QuickBooks developers?

Thank you for the clarification, Dav.

 

Let me reassure you that I will send your request to our developers. This will be evaluated, like other requests, so it'll get a chance of being added in a future release. 

 

I'd also want to let you know that you can do the same within QuickBooks. You can share this feedback by clicking Help at the top, selecting Send Feedback Online, and then choosing Product Suggestion. This will be sent directly to our developers' inbox.

 

I appreciate your efforts in posting here in behalf of other users. I'm sure they'll find these helpful just like I did. I've also voted up your post to help it stay in queue for other people to see.
