Inventory that has been held in a warehouse using one of the Hold Types must be released before being added to an outwards consignment.
To release inventory, start by visiting the Inventory screen.
You can find inventory to release, by using the action menu in the top-right of the Inventory blade and choosing Release Inventory.
The Release Inventory option in the action menu
Alternatively, you can release individual inventory items by finding the item in the inventory screen and choosing Release Product from the action menu at the end of the inventory item.

Releasing individual inventory
If you choose to release an individual inventory item, Consignly will prepopulate the release screen for you.
Ensure you set the quantity to release and the particulars describing why it is being released, then tap Release Inventory.
The inventory will now become available to allocate to an outwards consignment.

Add further inventory to release at the same time, by tapping the Add Inventory button and searching for additional held inventory to release.
Releasing multiple inventory items together
Often an organisation may wish to release many inventory items at once. For example, if a batch was put on a QA Hold pending lab testing, and the results of the lab testing mean the inventory can be made available, then the entire batch may like to be released at once.
Enter the Release Inventory screen by using the action menu at the top-right of the Inventory blade.
Select the warehouse and Client Partner you are releasing inventory for.
Next, tap the Add Inventory button, and you will be presented with an inventory search screen. Use this screen, including the advanced filters if required, to find the inventory you wish to release.
Select the inventory items to release, and add them to the Release Inventory form.
Continue adding inventory until you have selected all of the inventory items you wish to release.

Lastly, enter the particulars describing why the inventory is being released, and then tap the Release Inventory button.
