There might be a scenario where user may not ship the entire inventory for an order. In this case, Remaining quantity will be added as backorder quantity.
Some companies don’t wish to create an order with backorder quantity for a particular customer. In that case, if you do not want to allow backorder quantity for a specific customer, you can do it through A/R Customers screen. Read on to see how it can be done.
If you do not want to allow backorder quantity, navigate to Account Receivable–> A/R Customers–>Customers
On A/R Customers screen, there is a check box ‘Allow Backorder Quantities’ under the ‘Invoicing’ tab.
If the check box is un-checked, it won’t allow users to enter the backorder quantity. If user wants to enter the backorder quantity, he/she can uncheck the option “Allow Backorder Quantities”. [Refer Below screen shot].
