What is the function in inventory part availability exceptions to confirm the line? Any other missing the option that note is not disappearing when exceptions are calculated again?

RMB on the line and select confirm, this will simultaneously tick the box for Confirmed, add the date and user who did the confirmation.  This and the note will remain for future calculations.

I actually tested this in system (IFS), I add note and confirm the line. After next calculation of exceptions, both note and confirmation was gone. Bug?

We have also tested this functionality and found the same behaviour: Calculating exceptions clears the confirmation. So what is the purpose of this functionality? How is it supposed to be used? The idea itself is very promising but if handled exceptions disappear they are of no use.

Sorry, it has taken a long time to come back to this.  I had been going off of memory when I first replied, but didn’t verify that the behavior you are seeing is the same for our setup.  So agree the usefulness is very limited because if you run the task daily to generate the exceptions, the note only persists for the day.  If you haven’t taken an action to alter the outcome, the same message is there tomorrow without the note.

I’ve never pursued with IFS whether there is a bug or a different setting to retain the note, not sure of the purpose in the current state.

@MirjaK , I guess this should be reported as a bug. Please have this post updated if you hear anything new from IFS, I will do the same.
