We just launched an update that slightly changes the layout and functionality of the order page.

Changes

-- The button to add line items and products is now separate from the button to commit inventory.

-- Added the ability to directly commit inventory items

-- Added the ability to create order item categories that represent physical inventory


Committing Inventory:

Previously:

-- Click on the blue "plus" button

-- Click on the "Commit Inventory" menu item

Now:

-- Click on the "Commit Inventory" button

Add a product variation based order item

Previously:

-- Click on the blue "plus" button

-- Click on "Add Line Item" menu item

Now:

-- Click on "Add Items" (Above the order items table)

-- Select the "Product Variation" tab (the default tab)

Add a description based order item

Previously:

-- Click on the blue "plus" button

-- Click on "Add Products" menu item

Now:

-- Click on "Add Item" (Above the order items table)

-- Select the "Line Item" tab

---- If you select a physical order item category, you can now enter a quantity and commit inventory to the line item. To manage your order item categories, visit the order item categories settings page.


Direct Commit:

This update adds the ability to click on an order item's committed quantity to see the inventory items that have been committed to that order item, as well as directly commit inventory items to it. Directly committing inventory items skips WholeCell's usual product variation verification and allows you to commit any inventory to the order item, regardless of whether or not the SKU or product variation matches. This means you can now add a line item and commit inventory to that line item. For example, you can create a "Mixed iPhone Lot" line item and commit multiple different types of inventory items to it directly. In order to commit inventory to a line item, it must belong to a "physical" order item category.
