Can anyone explain if the In-Transit Branch default under Inventory Preferences has any impact?  I have a multi-branch company and of course would have any number of branches that would be in-transit when transferring or purchasing inventory.  I don’t understand how 1 default In-Transit Branch would even apply much less make sense to be mandatory setup under Inventory Preferences.

 

thanks for the input

@KevinGilbert , basically  this is a branch attached to the ‘in transit warehouse’ (having CD = INTR, but not visible in UI) the same way as branches are attached to ordinary warehouses,

In particular, when you do a first step of a 2step transfer (say between WHOLESALE and RETAIL warehouses), GL Transactions are:

  • Cr Inv Account and Branch attached to WHOLESALE
  • Dr In Transit Account and *In Transit Branch*

 

let me know if it clarifies

@mvolshteyn 

Does the two-step (with receipt) create a new inventory item with the target branch inventory class? Working on splitting a branch in two and trying to avoid journal entries to move costs as well as prefer to not replicate inventory items for each branch.

Thank you,

@dmzasdf , no the  two-step inventory transfers do not create new inventory items

They are transfers of existing inventory items between warehouses
