Serial number for non-stock item

I have a service that generates a tracking number. This tracking number is the same function as a serial code in ERPNext, because under this tracking number, there are warranty details.

I need to enable serial tracking number for service items.

Currently is tied with stock.items only. Either you maintain it as stock item or you have to customize the system

how do I maintain a non tangible product in stock? It’s a service. Can a request be made to allow for this in a future release?

I wanted to provide some further information on this requirement.

From my understanding, a stock item that uses a serial number requires the serial numbers to be loaded prior to using them in ERPnext.

My requirement is a bit different.

We receive items with serial numbers that are not in our records before they arrive, but we need to scan them into our system when a customer drops them off. We are responsible for maintaining a record of these serial numbers for reporting reasons as well.

For example, if we select an item in POS that we want to the track serial number of, a popup box asking to enter the serial number should be presented to scan the barcode into the item record.

There is a use case scenario for this so I wanted to clarify to see if it can be implemented in a future release.

is there any plan to try and implement this?

@jpp just try making a Custom Form to track your serials.

@rmehta I think its not so much to track the serials, but to use it inside other parts of ERPNext.

For example I want to do the following in POS: Select an item and have it prompt me to scan or enter the serial number.

Is this possible to just add the feature to track non-stock items instead? It seems like a legitimate user case.
