Has anyone used re- order point manually by unchecking the auto calculate ?

edited Mar 18, 2020 8:05PM in Ask A Guru 1 comment


We are implementing Advanced Inventory management- Has anyone done this manually by  unchecking the auto calculate ?

We would like to manually enter Re order point and preferred stock levels on the item record and have the quantities to order show up on the order items screen while we uncheck all the auto calculates options for Re order point and preferred stock levels.

Everything thing seems to be working as expected when tested in Sand box.

How ever suite Best practice asks suggests to not uncheck auto calculate – does not provide reasons why.

Suite Ans: Best Practice: Using Auto-Calculation

When you use first enable Advanced Inventory Management, NetSuite recommends as a best practice that when you are setting up inventory records, do not immediately enter settings to auto-calculate stock levels and demand for ordering items. This is because when you begin to use auto-calculation, if there is not enough sales history, the data may be inaccurate.


Howdy, Stranger!
