Low Inventory Report/Email
We have multiple locations and the low inventory report sends an email which includes all low inventory items regardless of location.
So can I suggest that the low inventory report is location specific? It would also be useful to get this report send to different email address per location. So Location 1 low stock report goes to location1@ and location 2 low stock to location2@.
Another problem we have is items that we only sell once i.e refurbished laptops etc they all show up on this report but we're never going to re-order this item. Is there a way to disable certain one off items from being included in this report?

I agree with this suggestion. Having one master inventory list is a waste of time for me as well. Having to figure out which store needs which parts is counter productive and would be easier to do a physical count which I would have to do anyway to figure out what goes where. 3 store locations all have their own managers that track and order inventory on their own without micro managing from the owner/Me. Also, since your nightly email is only able to go to one email address and can not have a forwarded email address inputted it would be beneficial to have multiple email address's able to be input for each store location or let one email address we have configured for forwarding be allowed to be input. IE: My email address email@example.com goes to the managers of each location. I tried to input this and according to Pamela it was getting blocked because your email client is not configured for this type of email forwarding. Until a fix for this is updated I'm going to have to discontinue using the nightly report because it is useless at this point. And that is upsetting.
It would also be beneficial for the low inventory e-mail to show the current stock levels and what we set as the desired stock level. That way it can easily be reordered without having to click on each link to determine how much we actually have in the store.
