Make Stock Inactive

mark stock inactive


Whilst there are no issues with marking a stock as inactive when there is a quantity in stock (as this does not affect reporting), you will receive a warning:


qty in stock


Normally, you would not want to mark as inactive when you have a quantity in Stock, hence the warnings etc, however it is fine to do.


Possible reasons for marking inactive:

New product but not for sale or purchase yet.

Old product that is in stock, and needs to be written off.

You don't want it available for selection, ie. product recall for example, and stock is in a quarantine location.

The product is still in stock, you are just flagging it as inactive.


You could consider unticking both the This Stock I Buy and This Stock I Sell, which is the basically the same as Inactive.


A report to use for auditing purposes is Stock Value By GL Group under Management > Reports in the Stock Reports folder.


This report directly compares the stock sub ledger to the GL, and is a good way to check that no one is journalling directly to the SOH GL accounts.


In a perfect world this report should match to the cent, but is often out a few cents due to rounding (eg. I buy a pack of 3 things at $10 so 3.3333 each in SOH).


Stock list by default only shows Active stock, however if you click the Active tick box twice to show a solid black box inside the tick box it shows both active and inactive.
