Magento users have the power to manage inventory in Magento using features triggered by Tags/Keywords. Feature Tags are applied to Products in Point of Sale.
In some cases, you may want a product in Magento to allow customers to place back orders for products which are out of stock.
By placing the word "backstock" in the product tags/keywords, Accumula sets the following settings on the associated product in Magento:
- Manage Stock = Yes
- Backorders = Allow Qty below 0 and Notify Customer.
- Stock Availability = In Stock
Note: This tag should be applied to the items/products with inventory, and not to the parent matrix/configurable itself.
Example in Lightspeed Retail
Result in Magento > Product > Inventory
Note: The product can be returned to regular stock management by removing the "backstock" tag/keyword from the product in your Point of Sale, and saving.
