Bug? Turning off Inventory

We replenish from a distributor based on whats orded. So while we have a lot of inventory we don’t stock everything. I’m sure this is common.

The problem we have is that even though the configure settings are set to ignore qty or allow < 0 or not decrement when possible - there are still problems.

First, if we set all on hand stock qty to 1, a customer cannot checkout with more then 1 in their cart. When we set all quantity on hand to 9999 they can.

Second, and this is more of an interface issue, it’s a real pain/stupid to have to set every product we add to IN STOCK, there should be a way to default them all to instock. It just adds yet one more step to adding products which we do a dozen every week.

I’ve been playing around with 1.1 and you’ll be happy to know that you can set it to turn off inventory globally in 1.1 ... almost there. smile
