Support » Plugin: ATUM Inventory Management for WooCommerce » Reserved stock not removed from the current stock

    Hi,

    I created an inventory log to put part of my current stock as reserved stock.

    I remember that, a couple of months ago (in December), the reserved stock was removed from the current stock, so that the number of items available was adjusted to the amount of stock I had put aside in the reserved stock.

    However, now it does not happen anymore, and the available stock does not change according to the amount of items placed in the reserved stock.

    Inventory log is pending, plugin and WooCommerce are up-to-date.

    Do you know why it suddenly does not work anymore ? Is this due to a bug in the plugin ?

    Thanks

    Hi @coraliesavonneriekesia

    Sorry but the Inventory Logs never changed stocks automatically. Not sure why are you remembering this because it never happened 🙂
    The Inventory Logs have buttons to Increase/Decrease the stocks manually for the selected items.
    On the other hand, Purchase Orders works differently. These work in the same way as the WooCommerce orders but adding the stock instead of reducing it. So when they are marked as “received”, the stock is added automatically.

    Best Regards,
    Salva.

    Hi Salva,

    Thanks for your reply. Maybe I was not clear in how I explained my issue 🙈

    On this page : https://forum.stockmanagementlabs.com/d/12-reserved-stock, it is written ” You can create a Reserved Stock inventory log if you want to remove stock from part of your active inventory.”

    Well, that’s what is actually not working for me. Wether I have reserved stocks or not, nothing changes on my active inventory.

    For instance, I have 100 items in stock, when I make a reserved inventory log to place 10 items on the reserved stock, my item in stock remain at 100 instead of dropping to 90.

    From the article I linked above, that’s how I understand Reserved stock inventory logs are supposed to work, isn’t it ?

    Hi @coraliesavonneriekesia

    I’ve just read that article and I see there are things that could be explained better. We’ll change it to be more clear.
    But this article doesn’t say that the product’s stock is changed automatically. What it says is that the “Reserved Stock” column in Stock Central is adjusted accordingly. But to change the product’s stock, you must do it manually.
    You have more info about it in this other article:
