Committed, Ordered, Backordered
When an item is committed, ordered, or backordered, i think there should be a 'magnifying' glass that you can click on that has the work order or purchase order it is located on. woul dbe a lot easier to find problems within the inventory having this.
This functionality is part of the inventory item lookup, under the history tab. The history of the item will show the events, and can be sorted by any of the columns on the lookup form.
Hi Shawna. The committed items don't show under the history tab, just the PO information. I will put in a request with the design team to add the customer information to the history tab.

Has this ever been done, I can not find the information under history, for committed orders, I can only find the PO information where we ordered the item, I would like to be able to see which of our customers ordered the item from us as well.
This should be requested again to start a new discussion. It needs to be looked at.
This is not complete by a long shot! I want to be able to see work orders for the items committed and on back order. PO numbers for the items on order. You are lucky if you get the on order clear once you have received your order through PO. Half the time it still shows them on order. Then click the magnifying glass and you can't even look what PO it's from. What's the point if it doesn't work properly?
This item should not be marked completed. What people are asking for is that when an item shows on order or back order, those fields have magnifying glasses next to them. But when you click them, you get very limited info. One should be able to click and then see what PO an item is on, or what invoice it's back ordered on. Going to the history tab is something very different and does not provide this functionality. For example, clicking on the On Order magnifying glass gives you the item on order report. But that report doesn't list PO numbers, which is really annoying. So you have to look up by date. Maybe the issue is just modifying this report slightly...?

For the most part committed has not worked and is one of the biggest factors we have stuck with CMS. It's Inventory ratings! Then to move over to Denali thinking it would fix our problem and it hasn't. This was a very big disappointment.

Going to echo other's statements here too. I was really disappointed when I got Denali and I saw the magnifying glass on the "on order" field in the inventory module, and it didn't even give you the purchase order number that the item was ordered on.
this really needs to be done, as we have found that some items that show on back order or on order are not even on any work order or purchase order. the magnifying glass is already there, would it be that hard to have it tell us what the work order or purchase order number it is on for commitment and back order?
