Common Custom transaction field for transactions

Hi all,

I need to create a transaction column field that can be applied to both sale transactions and inventory transfers.

I Need a default value in that field as Quantity*2 to be shown for each line item.


It is giving me a quantity field not found in the transfer order column.

CASE WHEN {type} = 'Inventory transfer' THEN {quantityonhand}*(1/6) ELSE {quantity}*(1/6) END

I write the formula in the decimal number type custom field's formula by ticking the formula checkbox.

Please let me know if I may need to create two different fields or as a single field that will work both transactions (sales order and inventory transfer).

    Hi paul,

    Good day. Just to confirm, the value is showing correctly when you used the formula CASE WHEN {type} = 'Inventory transfer' THEN {quantityonhand}*(1/6) ELSE {quantity}*(1/6) END, but it is not showing on both ales Order and Inventory Transfer?

    Would it be possible to send a screenshots of the custom line field that was created, the Sales order Record, and the Inventory Transfer? Please remove any confidential information on the screenshots you'll attach.

    Thank you,
