Today there is no way to trigger physical inventory count in SIM. The functionality can be enabled via a program/backend. It should nullify all other open requests.

    Currently when we trigger cycle count it wont cancel cycle counts which were created earlier.

    To generate full physical count for all items and sku's , we need to clean up existing outstanding tasks and cancel existing programs. Once the physical count task completed, we need to resume back the old cycle count frequency program

    This is manual process, product don't have feature to seamlessly store manager can trigger the full physical count with out doing all backend cleanup.

    Manager should be able to pause the existing program and resume once the full cycle count is completed,

    but these feature is not currently available please, check and let us know whether its feasible
