Physical Count Sheets (IN620500) Hide Book Qty Parameter

Add a checkbox parameter called Hide Book Qty. to the Physical Count Sheets (IN620500) screen that allows a user to decide whether the Book Qty. column should be displayed or not.

It might even be good if the Hide Book Qty. parameter was checked by default since "blind counting" is a pretty typical physical inventory approach.

    Dear Tim, 

    After review, we recommend implementing this idea as a customization due to the specific nature of the request. You can create a custom report based on the IN620500 where you can exclude Book Qty column. It is also possible to substitute an existing report or grand rights to one or another report based on Users role.

    Ok, but this came up in every Distribution class that I taught. Most people don't want to show quantities on their physical count sheets. It would be a really simple change to make and it would be really nice to have it setup and ready to go out-of-the-box. Acumatica is a great platform, but there are a lot of areas like this where some small additions would make Acumatica much more user friendly out-of-the-box.

    I agree with Tim.  This is a basic control that should be part of the product.  Every CFO or Inventory Manager that I have ever shown the Physical Inventory sheets say "Why does the book quantity print?".  The business case is simple, when performing an inventory count it would be very easy for the Counter to just fill in the Book Quantity instead of actually doing the count.

    It looks like this feature made its way into Acumatica 2019 R1. Thank you Acumatica.

    Checking my Acumatica 2019 R1 environment, it looks like it's even more than we asked for.

    The Physical Inventory Types (IN208900) screen has a new Hide Book Qty. on PI Count checkbox:

    Checking the Hide Book Qty. on PI Count checkbox in the screenshot above will hide the Book Quantity field on the Physical Inventory Count (IN305010) screen where you go to enter the physical count results.

     

    Then there is the part that we asked for which is the Hide Book Qty. field that has been added to the Physical Count Sheets (IN620500) screen:
