Over the next week, we'll be releasing an overhaul to the way we display stock counts for your products. These changes are designed to provide a more helpful way of viewing your order stock summaries, so you can see exactly what you have available to sell and what needs to be made in order to fulfil current orders.
Let's go through the new stock columns in detail:
On Hand: This is the physical stock level representing all adjustments up to present day and should represent exactly what is actually on your shelf. This includes unshipped orders as these are still technically on hand in stock although not available to sell. If your historical adjustments are incorrect, this value can potentially be negative.
Committed: This is the total quantity of your unshipped orders for this product. When an order is marked as shipped, the stock will move from this count to your Shipped count (more details below).
Available: This is the total of stock on hand with committed stock removed. It represents the amount of stock you have available for sale. If your current stock committed is more than your current physical stock, this can become a negative number - in this case, it usually indicates that you need to create more manufactures to fulfil any outstanding orders. Available works in exactly the same as your current In Stock column but has been renamed to better represent how the count is calculated.
Shipped: This is the total quantity of shipped orders of this product. This is essentially your count of fulfilled orders.
Your Sold and Made counts are still available and work in exactly the same manner as before, but have been moved to the project and variation details pages.
If you have any questions or concerns about this upcoming change, please get in touch and we'll be happy to discuss in more detail.
