QuickBooks Online continues to make useful improvements to inventory tracking. The latest, is a predicative feature which will show quantity on hand in the current transaction. This means, if you are creating a Purchase Order, Invoice or Bill, you will be able to view the quantity on hand from within the transaction itself. No longer is it necessary to check inventory balances (to safeguard against negative quantities) before creating your transaction. Now you can perform the desired transaction with your available inventory quantities showing-up right where you need them, 'on the transaction'.
To use this feature:
1) Verify you are tracking inventory: Company gear > Company settings > Sales > Track quality on hand;
2) Create your Invoice, when you enter an inventory item in the Product/Service field you can now verify you are selling within the stock level you have available using the new "Available quantity tooltip" that will appear in the Quantity field. If you don't have any inventory available, the tooltip will display "Out of Stock."
Thanks "QuickBooks Online developers" you have made another great addition to the product.
