Topic:   V5 - Shortage (Snapshot) and (Forecast)

You did a nice job adding filters to the Inventory and Assembly screens. Would it be possible to add a similar filter to the Shortage List and Shortage Forecast reports?

Sorting and Filtering in the shortage snapshot would be fairly straight forward.

But I'm not sure about filtering in the forecast report.
Filtering on PartNumber, description, category etc should be feasible. But filtering out, for example, suppliers could cause some confusion.

The forecast report shows pending transactions, grouped by item, in chronological order. In theory it could be showing expected arrival dates of the same item from multiple suppliers in the same time frame. If you filtered out, ie excluded, suppliers that would remove those expected deliveries from the report where it would cause a shortage even though items are already OnOrder from the filtered (excluded) suppliers.

I think we need to think about this. I've put it into the suggestion box.
