System Settings

Use the System settings available to set default behaviours for your Unleashed account. These settings will apply to the appropriate transactions from the time they're enabled. Any open transaction that exists prior to a setting being enabled will not retrospectively update to align with changes made afterwards.
System Settings Description
Auto Allocation When enabled, Auto-Allocation will automatically allocate a Stock on Hand quantity to newly created open Sales Orders. Unleashed will then use the Allocated stock quantity to calculate the product's Available quantity in comparison to the product's current Stock on Hand.
Auto Set Receipt Quantity When Auto Set Receipt Quantity is enabled (enabled by default), the receipt quantity on the purchase order will default from the order quantity. If you prefer to manually enter the receipt quantity, you can disable this option and the receipt quantity will default to zero.   
Limit Ship Quantity to Availability

For Sales Shipments, when enabled, the Ship Quantity will not include quantities that are already included on other open shipments and will be calculated, and limited to, a product's remaining Available Quantity. 

Tip: Order Management must be enabled for this setting to be enabled.

NOTE: This is a one-time calculation for the shipment at the point of creation and is not recalculated based on future activity.

Recalculate Component quantities

The Recalculate Component quantities options is designed to allow production managers to enter component quantities, including the amount of wastage and then edit the assembled quantity to match the actual yield of the assembled stock. When enabled, a pop-up prompt will ask if the component quantities should be overwritten, based on the Bill of Material and proportional to the new Assembled Quantity. If disabled, a change in the assembly quantity will recalculate all component quantities accordingly. 

Tip: Select 'Yes' if you are editing the assembled quantity and want the components to update based on the bill of material. Select 'No' if you would like to edit the assembled quantity and preserve the existing component quantities.

Ship From Multiple Warehouses

The Ship From Multiple Warehouses is a feature designed for customers who want to fulfil orders by shipping from multiple warehouses.

Warning: Stock availability may be inaccurate until shipments are dispatched as stock allocations are based on the Sales Order warehouse, not the Shipment warehouse.For location-based tax rates, ensure shipment warehouses have the same tax rates based on the order’s from/to location tax rate.

Minimum Order Value Limit

NOTE: Default methods can also be set for individual suppliers.

Warning: If your default cost distribution method is changed it will not be applied to existing Purchase Orders.

Use Receipted Stock In Assemblies

Warning: If enabled, costs added to purchase orders after completing assemblies will not be factored into the assembly costs. For more details, see Using Receipted Goods in Assemblies.

Production Hours Per Day

The default is 8 hours per day.  Acceptable values are 1 through to 24.

Warning: This value will be used on all BOMs unless the BOM has its own number of production hours per day.

Production Work Days
