RE: Can I create serial numbers for my items BEFORE I receive them into inventory? Want to create labels for them before they arrive.

I see ways to do this via inventory adjustment or receiving an item, but not just to create the placeholder. Ideas?

If you have the serial # prior on the receiving of the item. you can create the item receipt/Adjustment then generate label.  After that delete the receipt/Adjustment.

Hope this will work. Thank you!

It looks like that would work for us. Is there any impact down the stream for that which may be negative? I do see that it removes the “item receipt” and makes it so that we can “receive items” again. Would it just be a matter of making sure that when you “re-receive” these items that you recreate the same serial numbers again?

basically the negative side of this is the availability of Item is Orders. Since you technically received the said item the Backorders will be on orders to fulfill and if there are new orders it will be committed. Item Receipt and Adjustment is a posting transaction.

Just put a memo for it(“Temporary Receive For Item Labels”)

Another option is to create a custom record under item(for temporary serial no.), and then customized the printout.

Hope this will work.
