We are trying to figure out a way to monitor our parts to include when we are in need of new parts. Is there a way to show negative parts inventory? This way I know that I need to order that many parts? Or has anyone else found a better way to do this? Due to lack of money, we tend to only have enough parts on hand for our current repairs in the que.

@lpreedom Thank you for submitting your question to our community! 😄

You can set an email alert for you to be notified based on low inventory. Here is the guide to get that set up: https://community.incidentiq.com/asset%2Dmanagement%2Dbasics%2D81/parts%2Dsuppliers%2Dfunding%2Dsource%2Dand%2Dpurchase%2Dorders%2D242#Part+Rules+-+Alerts+for+Low+Inventory+Quantity 

I hope this helps and Happy Holidays!

That is a good idea, however that isn’t really what I am looking for. We are trying to figure out a way to track the parts we need for each specific device. Knowing that we are at zero is good, but that only tells me that I don’t have the parts I need, not how many parts I need. If we were able to add parts to the tickets, and send our parts on hand total to negative numbers, that would help. Then I could look at the parts list and see screens are at -10, so now I know to order at least 10 screens. You see what I am saying?

Thanks.

@lpreedom This is an enhancement request, and it looks like you have added it to Idea Exchange already. I like @akorkishko workaround with starting with an extra in stock and then going down from there. 

Here is the idea link to follow for updates:
