It looks like this feature has been requested a couple of times, and last time (10 months ago) it was mentioned that it was being worked on.
Can we get the ability to specify which employee sourced a specific batch of inventory? In addition, would it be possible to get subcategories for store number and location?
When doing RA, there's tremendous value in pulling profitability reports for individual employees, stores numbers, and cities/shopping centers. Right now it's possible to do so by packing all of that data into the supplier name, but doing so causes the number of suppliers to balloon so large (Four employees with 20 stores would result in 80 separate suppliers just for one company!) that the supplier profitability report becomes useless without first exporting it to a CSV and parsing the supplier name into separate fields externally. Having to put data into a string that way carries its own set of problems (e.g. if InventoryLabs later adds additional features to supplier reporting, it will surely not play nicely with a supplier name that has company, employee ID, store number, and city all packed into a single string) so we'd rather not go down that road, but as it stands the supplier profitability report does not provide us with the details we need for larger logistical planning due to lacking these data points.
Since the last time this was suggested was 10 months ago, is this still being worked on?
