Hello people of NETSUITE land!
Today’s issue that we at Keystone Data tackled was to have the available kit quantity easily accessible for internal (client access-backend) and external(available on website-fronend) purposes. For example we need to calculate the available KIT A quantity which consists of 1 inventory ITEM GREEN, 1 YELLOW and 1 ORANGE each with their respective quantities.
In the above example the quantity for KIT A should be 2 because we only have 2 YELLOW items, thus we can only create 2 KITs. Another important step is to make that quantity easily accessible.
Our first solution is just a simple three steps process.
1.Create a customised item field (ex: Available KIT quantity) which will be available to all the KITs created by our customer.
2.Write a scheduled script which will calculate the available KIT quantity based on its components quantities.
3.Make the script post into the customised field created at step 1.
This way the user can see the available quantity at all times at the kit level and also can use the field as a transaction column.
The Second solution is just to create a saved search which returns the available quantity for each kit item.
Depending on your preference and client needs you can opt for one or the other.
If you need more clarification don’t hesitate to contact us, thank you everyone and have a nice day!
