    Hi Yisheng,

    The requirements of your Item Tracking code at the Business Central level will take precedent at a process-by-process basis. For example, if you have Warehouse Item Tracking enabled for Serial Numbers, it is not possible to register a Warehouse Pick without applying the Serial Numbers to the document lines.  If the Items are not Warehouse Serial Tracked, you can limit Serial Number entry to outbound processes only, but you cannot have it “half-in half-out” for the data entry such as scanning a few items’ serial numbers but not all of them. The system should never assume the Serial Number to handle as that has a major impact on the Business Central inventory data. The user should always enter the serial numbers with some level of data validation. With the aforementioned risk to Inventory Data, we could automate the serial number entry, but I can almost certainly guarantee inventory counts will reveal major inventory discrepancies.
