First, you'll want to click here to get yourself orientated on the automatic journal entry options in Paragon. You can choose to have your journal entries affected by your financials, financials & inventory, or by neither one.
In Paragon, only two transactions affect your total inventory, and will post a journal entry if the option is turned on in my company. These are receipts and shipments. In particular, the only time your total inventory will be affected is when you complete, or void a receipt or shipment of goods. If you have the financials & inventory option turned on in my company, completing or voiding these transactions will create journal entries based on your inventory value.
Issuing and completing picks and packs in Paragon do not actually deduct or add to your total inventory. They just move inventory from one location to another.
Work orders, Purchase orders, Orders, Quotes, RMAs, and Reservations don't actually affect total inventory numbers if you manually complete one of these transactions. If you issue one of these, the inventory never moves. If you void these, the item numbers update in reports (WIP changes).
