Retail POS / App Based Inventory Transfers & Management

As a community, I have seen that multiple sellers/subscribers (myself included) are interested in seeing feature changes to the way inventory transfers & auditing are done. Currently the only way to initiate/facilitate transfers is via the web platform and is incredibly obnoxious to use with a scanner of any type without manually reprogramming the scanner to not auto-enter after the scan. Additionally, inventory management and reporting should be made more easily accessed/filtered & exported. Change reports/loss reports etc are VITAL to a retail environment. 

 

In summary:

 

Transfer inventory from one location to another utilizing Square Retail POS & Mobile Retail Apps. 

 - This can be done by "Invoicing" another one of your locations for products and marking them as transferred. Invoices already have the option to adjust inventory - allow us to invoice our own locations or build a transfer into the apps etc. 

 - fix the online experience to allow scanners to work better with the system. 

 

Inventory/Adjustment History

 - Like inventory transfers, any counts/recounts should be documented as a single event that can be pulled after the count is completed as a bulk list of items counted. 

 - Loss/Shrink can only be tracked with viewing a "change log" for variants. The current system only allows you to filter counts and recounts but not any further nor does it allow an export of anything.

Agreed, this is something that is pretty badly needed. Is there a way to use the API to achieve something similar? Right now we create a PO at one location so that they can receive inventory. That inventory comes from our warehouse location, but inventory has to be removed manually from the warehouse. A transfer between locations doesn't allow us a PO to check quantities received once inventory gets to the retail location. 

 

PO to invoice between locations would be an ok solution too, just need something better than what we have now.
