When setting up Kitsets you are given two options - "Use Items When Invoiced" or "Use When Received into Stock".
These work as follows:
Use Items When Invoiced
This takes the items from stock (in the above example 1 x Dining Table and 8 x Chairs) when the kitset 1007 is sold. This product will never show up on a stocktake; the components will.
Updated in V8.300 Is the Update Costs/Prices button, this allows users to check the contents of the kitset without updating. BUT on creating a product for the first time this button must be used.
Use When Received into Stock:
In this case when the kitset 1137-Entertain2 is received into stock the component Products will be removed from stock. This setup is used when items are made / assembled in-house and are held in stock. This product will show up on the stocktake sheets.
In both cases the setup screen looks the same except for the tick box selection. Users can edit as necessary the quantity or change the sequence on the screen the components appear in.
