Being able to flag certain skus with the option to hold
With the option you have available to fill stock automatically in fulfillment manager, it would be nice to not fill orders that have a sku you could mark on hold. Not marking the order specifically on hold because I know that is available. Difference would be that in the set up of the sku you can mark it as on hold and take off hold. At that point the orders containing the sku would not be filled with the other items in stock until the on hold sku and is taken off hold. This would help in the event of items being on back order for quite some time and not wanting to allocate stock to the orders. Allocating stock early would just leave us sitting on stock for a couple months at times.
An interesting idea. We've already been considering a rework to Fulfillment Manager that, among other things, would allow you to filter the orders to show/fulfill only orders with selected products. I had not considered the opposite but perhaps a good addition would be an option to filter out by certain product(s) as well.
Thank you for the suggestion.
