Q. I stocked a Sublet but did not assign it to a Repair Order. Then added the Sublet to the Repair Order but it shows the Red Circle on it for short sale. Why?
Being that Sublets are not inventoried the way parts are, they are not tracked as having one in stock to sell or not. It is best to either add the Sublet to the Repair Order first then let it create the PO and Vendor Invoice. Or when stocking in a Vendor invoice, the Sublet needs to be assigned to the RO. If neither of these options happen, then the red circle will remain. However, it is simply a warning in order to keep your accounting correct by making sure cost is accounted for, so if you are sure the Sublet has been stocked and the correct cost is showing, the red circle can be bypassed.
