Hi All,

We are currently exploring options to keep track of expiration Dates for Non-Stock items.

Our client has Expiration Dates for Consumables that are Expensed right away and are in general treated like a Non-Stock Item.

Before recommending rethinking the usage of these items to be Stock items, we wanted to see if there are any ideas or proven ways out there to keep track of Expiration Dates for Non-Stock items?

 

Inventory Levels are not really needed but it should serve as an Indicator of what material they need to get rid of within their Facility. 

One example is Specialty Glue.

 

Any ideas on how this could be accomplished without the need of having a Stock item for this.

Have you thought about attributes for Non-Stock Items?

HI @krausef77 

Have you thought about attributes for Non-Stock Items?

We did but it would not cover the Use case of having multiple Expiration Dates on one Item. 
Like I said, it might be necessary to have Stock Item, but we wanted to explore other options we might not be thinking of.

What about creating a specific custom field? Do you need expiration date on the non-stock item profile or during invoicing or purchasing. How does it carry through the system?

It would be a Non-Stock item requiring Receipt. A Custom Field on the Receipt or Receipt Line might be something that could work.
Thanks for your input!

Also, you can add that custom field as part of the purchase receipt workflow engine for non-stock items.
