Build Order Allocation¶
PR #2094 represents a significant improvement to the workflow for allocating stock items against a build order. A new API endpoint has been created allowing stock items to be allocated against builds, with dynamic validation and feedback of error messages.
Additionally the workflow and UX has been simplified, allowing greater efficiency of stock allocation against a build order.
Receiving Purchase Orders¶
PR #2102 provides a major refactor of the process by which stock items are received against a purchase order. The receiving process now makes use of the REST API for a more responsive and intuitive user experience.
PR #2103 provides a major improvement to the stock adjustment API. While remaining backwards compatible, the API endpoints for stock adjustments (stocktake, quantity adjustment, stock transfer) have been updated to use the DRF serializer framework. This provides a more streamlined user experience with improved error checking and handling.
Sales Order Allocations¶
PR #2110 provides a major refactor of the process by which stock items are allocated against a sales order. The process now makes use of the REST API for a more responsive and intuitive user experience.
Delete Old Error Messages¶
PR #2113 adds a background task to periodically remove old error messages from the database. Error messages are retained in the database for 30 days, after which point they are removed.
Sales Order Export¶
PR #2119 adds the ability to export sales order information in a variety of supported file formats.
PR #2150 adds support for Bill of Materials Substitution. This allows substitute parts to be individually specified against BOM line items, allowing for stock of the substituted parts to be used for build order allocation if the original part is not available.
PR #2159 provides a major improvement to the process by which build outputs are completed. The build output completion process now uses the API and provides a much more intuitive and efficient user interface.
Bootstrap Yourselves In¶
PR #2205 represents a major visual overhaul of the user interface, updating to bootstrap 5.
Low Stock Notifications¶
PR #2208 provides notification emails when the stock level for a particular part falls below the configured "minimum stock" threshold for that part. An email is automatically sent to any users who are subscribed to notifications for that part.
Stock Item Forms¶
PR #2198 provides a major refactor of stock item forms, for creating and editing stock items. These forms have been migrated to the REST API, providing a much more responsive user experience.
PR #2371 adds management of user settings via the settings page
Sales Order Shipments¶
PR #2199 adds the ability to perform multiple shipments against a given Sales Order. This allows split-shipments and partial fulfillment of Sales Orders
PR #2074 adds a plugin ecosystem, allowing future development of first-party and third-party plugins to extend upon core InvenTree functionality. Watch this space!
Assign Stock Items to Customer¶
PR #2436 refactors the process by which stock items can be manually assigned to a customer, separate to the Sales Order process.
Merging Stock Items¶
PR #2468 adds the ability to merge multiple stock items together.
Scheduled Tasks for Plugins¶
PR #2512 adds a "scheduled task" mixin for plugins, allowing custom plugins to run periodically scheduled tasks.
Triggered Events for Plugins¶
PR #2515 adds a "triggered events" mixin for plugins, allowing custom plugins to run code when a particular event occurs.
