Service Items and Stock Inventory

I am working with ERPNext V8 and have the following questions:

  1. How to disable inventory tracking on Services? one way I found out from discussions is to get “maintain stock” unchecked for current service item. This option does not uncheck for current item when I try to do it in the Item Master form.

  2. For a service item with “maintain stock” unchecked which I newly created, the sales order form does not provide “Maintenance” option in the Order Type drop down menu. Any suggestions for figuring this out somehow?

My questions are based on these instructions:


You cannot uncheck once you have made inventory transactions. Maybe make a new item code.

Maintenance type is usually for spares. Maybe you can create a custom field to track your status

Thank you!
