    Thanks guys, this was the last major thing on my wish list but I held off asking about it because you've been so responsive to my other requests. Didn't want to stretch the friendship :-)
    Didn't have to ask, you've done it anyway....great work, thankyou!

    Great to see you guys making progress! It is not entirely clear, but can a top level product,not just a variant, be a kit made up of other SKUs which are only removed from inventory when shipped? Similarly, can this functionality on a top-level product be applied to a bill of materials (BOM)? You mentioned something about a variant bundle described in this way made up of various components SKUs which are not sold separately but assembled/manufactured into a finished product SKU which has its own inventory tracked?

    Hi Mark!

    At this stage a Variant is a SKU and is the only thing that can be made up of composites.

    The other function around Assembly or Production - ie., running a production run is something that will come in the not so distant future.

    Appreciate the feedback!

    Hi Cameron, do you have an idea of how long the "not so distant future" will be? Will this still be this year?

    loving where this is going!! it is "only" working for companies that build to order - as far as our testing goes. the system at the moment can't distinguish between "already finished products" and "products that still can be produced". correct me if i am wrong please...

    Hey Tarek,

    At this stage you're right, a composite product is focused on customers that build to order. We do have companies using stock adjustments to run manufacturing / production which is one option, however we will look at building out our production functionality further in the future,
