Stock Movement

Stock Movement is an inventory transaction that records the movement of stock to and from a location.

Unlike the other inventory transactions, stock movement is not linked to a Customer or a Supplier through a Sale or a Purchase.

Movement Types

Before creating a Stock Movement you need to know about its Movement Types. There are three types of Stock Movements that you can create:

  1. Material Issue: stock is moved out of a location.
  2. Material Receipt: stock is moved into a location.
  3. Material Transfer: stock is moved from one location to another.

Depending on the Movement Type you have to set the From and To movement locations
