Ability to suggest more items to SIM cycle count feature and create count tasks for the day

Once the cycle count scheduler creates the count tasks, customer would like to create additional count tasks for the day manually and count them as a cycle count activity. Customer wants cycle count program to consider these manually created count tasks and their status in the calculations of creating new set of count tasks for future days.

Current cycle count program in SIM, calculates number of count task based on the count program definition and the non zero inventory availability for items at certain locations in sim at the time of count task generation.

In case the customer wants to count more items (than suggested by count program agent) on a particular day, it is expected that SIM somehow support generating more count tasks for a new set of items and locations.
