Inventory Management

Inventory Management

With Magento 2.3 it appears inventory management has changed.


I have "Decrease Stock When Order is Placed" set to 'Yes' which apparently now does absolutely nothing. Magento is only decreasing the stock when a shipment is created, it does nothing with stock when an order is placed. 


This is causing HUGE problems... we don't have a system where shipments are instantaneously created when an order is submitted. If we have an item with a quantity of 25 which isn't updated until the warehouse performs the pick tasks and creates the shipment... there's nothing to prevent selling 30 of them. 


Has anyone figured out a way to revert it back to respecting 'Decrease Stock When Order is Placed' and stop it from decreasing stock on a shipment being created?


Trying to manage inventory based on what you've shipped instead of what you have sold seems like extremely flawed logic to me... 




Re: Inventory Management

Figured out how to make this work... wish there was a way to turn this new functionality off. It's a complete pain when you have an ERP updating your Magento instance.

Hello @jcroxfordv 


That concept came from 2.3 launches with MSI (multi-source inventory) concept.

Glad you figured out to resolve your concern.

Re: Inventory Management

I recently read an article about data analytics. Can this thing really help improve the productivity and quality of my business?

Re: Inventory Management

I also noticed a similar problem because I didn't have any issues working with Magento 2.2. I even had to hire a person to set up the entire database for analysis in the future. It pissed me off. And I had to pay a lot of money to pay for the work of a specialist because I have a big business and I must always know all the data about clients. And in general, I advise all novice businessmen to read an article about data analytics - After all, now many business people are trying to build a business according to the old system and pay a lot of money for advertising. However, they do not know that you need to pay for data analytics now, which will give you much more profit in the future.
