Currently if the cross reference is not configured and you scan or enter an item in the scanning screen Acumatica returns item not found. This causes a few issues. Setup needs to be perfect, all bar codes need to be be added to each item's cross reference table.
Instead of returning an error item does not exist, search the inventoryitem table and double check.
This helps in three ways:
A) It prevents delays in the warehouse where an admin needs to run off and fix an item because the code doesn't exist. The user either had the code correctly, or can copy and paste from the screen or enter the item code and continue on.
B) It gets companies up and running that much quicker on our Advanced WMS. They might have imported barcodes into the ID field initially.
C) It will help the Sales Demo dataset and our ability to demo easily without much setup.
