When setting up items for a customer wherein they are being billed by the weight, we invoice off of the shipping weight. We need to be able to override the weight when receiving or add total weight on the receiving report. For example, if I am shipped in 12 chairs and 10 tables, the way the system works right now, I have to put in an individual weight for each item which means warehouse staff have to do math to back into the total weight that was received in which is not a reasonable expectation.
While some customers may provide us a weight per item, only in extremely rare situations does that match the actual shipping weight. Most times we don't get a weight per unit from our customers. As such, CWT rating while still keeping the system accurate so that the customer can track product is awkward and bulky.
The easiest solution would be to have a button in the inbound and outbound transactions to override the receiving report weight and a field to enter this into.
