Net Usage in Where Used Widget

I have received a request from one of the users and I think it could be a good enhancement to the tool. I was asked if the Net Consumption could be added in the "Where Used" widget that can be pulled in the Items tab. Where use Widget

This information is available for each individual material but it is not available for bulk export with applied filters. It would help both to improve the report and get the data on the quantities used for each equipment, but also to identify cases that shouldn't actually appear in that widget.

For example, the user has identified an equipment that appears in Where Used but when he went into SAP, he could see the net consumption was zero, as the material was issued and then returned. So in the end, there was no usage against that equipment, and it probably shouldn't appear in the widget.

    After reviewing this idea, it would seem that the requirements can be achieved through configuration.

    Hi Melody, yes this refers to 'just the widget.' One of the columns 'ISSUE COUNT,' counts issues regardless of whether they were issues or returns

    Hello Maca

    I wanted to check back with you to see if when you say "report" if that means just in the widget? We are giving this request design and consideration, but want to be sure we fully understand the request.

    Thank you for advising.
