Supply Allocation, mark lines "firm" not using UI.

Hi all,

We have had supply allocation enabled for 1 year. (whew it is a lot to deal with and I'm very much second guessing that decision. I can find very few true experts on Netsuite's supply allocation). We are allocating sales orders upon save. We also have an allocation schedule running once per night. And we often use the Allocate Orders and Reallocate Items pages to manage the exceptions to our Order Allocation Strategy (which is essentially by transaction date, include future inventory, and allocate supply as close as possible to the supply required by date).

The problem we are having is when we need to ration our inventory across multiple sales orders. In otherwords, let's hypothetically say we have 500 Sales Orders for qty of 10 Widgets each for a total of 5000 Widgets. Each sales order is to a different dealer. The problem is we only have 2500 Widgets available and we want to ration out this inventory. For simpliclity, let's just say we want 5 widgets to commit to each sales order so that it is a more fair rationing of our invnetory. We can do this

Howdy, Stranger!
