Magento 2 users have the power to manage inventory in Magento 2 using features triggered by Tags/Keywords. Feature Tags are applied to Products in Point of Sale and processed and filtered out of the Tags sent to Magento 2. They work whether or not the Update Tags setting is On or Off.
"flipstock" tag or keyword
The "flipstock" tag is designed to allow finer control of standard product inventory and the way Magento 2 positions the messaging about those products to your customers.
By placing the word "flipstock" in the tags/keywords, Accumula will change the product's Manage Stock setting according to the inventory value received from Point of Sale:
- If Inventory equal to or less than 0, Manage Stock = No.
- If Inventory equal to or greater than 1, Manage Stock = Yes.
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 "flipstock" tag/keyword from the product in your Point of Sale, and saving.
