Function of the "inventory controlled" check box on a parts record

Need some clarification on the functionality of this check box on the parts record. I have searched the documentation and can't find any reference to it.

Hey Arnold,

I looked it up in the documentation and we checked in the code as well. The 'Inventory Controlled' field doesn't have any special functionality within the program.

I would be interested to see what other users do with that field.

I only use it to identify the parts I actively control in my warehouse so it doesn't have any programatic functionality for me. I thought I heard Scott mention something about it in the session at ACT on Weds., so I'm mostly just checking to make sure. I had to leave before he finished to catch my flight home.

I checked with Scott and he said that during the session it came up that it was used as a flag field to mark parts that you integrate with your work order system. It is just there for reference (no special functionality) and the way you use it sounds fine.

I was messing with the Inventory Controlled box this morning, and found that when I check the box in the web version, it automatically checks my Discontinued box on my Desktop version of that same parts record. I'm not sure if this is a glitch, or if they're assuming no one is using the Desktop version if they're using the web based version..?? Not really sure, but I still use both versions based off of preferences I personally have.

Hey Walter,

I suspect that somebody changed the caption for the inventory controlled field in the desktop but not in the web.  This is what the desktop module looks like without any customization.
