Teresa, We do this two ways... 1) we put them in a separate warehouse (an "in-transit" warehouse). Or 2), we discretely allocate the items to the customer order (but we are using a controlled warehouse - I don't know if you CAN do that in an uncontrolled warehouse). Hope that helps!

We have orders from customers who are unable to pay (yet) and we build those items and take to shipping. The due date has come and gone and the items cannot ship because of non-payment. Finished goods are showing in inventory (we are uncontrolled warehouse), we are not allowed to ship to other customers because what if this one can pay today. How can we get these items to not show in inventory so that the planners (after they forget it's in shipping) don't promise it to someone else? We've discussed "IS" to special account to get it out of inventory so the planners don't see it, but then how do the accounting folks see it for inventory purposes? We are at Rel 6 with Essentials only. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can help the inventory people handle this? Any help is greatly appreciated!
