On OpenERP 6 how can I enable checking for available stock when selling through POS????

When I sell a stockable product through sales it warns me if there is no available stock or if stock will go negative. When I use the POS to sell, it doesnt check for stock and as a result I get negative stock.

Thank you for the answer. Our company has 36768 products, what if the employee missmatched a product or read the reference code wrong and tried to sell through POS? There has to be a way to force checking stock when adding a product line... It is essential.

It makes business sense to warn the user at POS level that what he just typed leads to negative stock, as it may prevent from mistyping

If you sold a product with the POS module, you delivered it to the customer! This means the product was available for that sale. Your inventory before the sale was probably erroneous! You the need to correct the negative stock, after a complete checking for that product in the wharehouse.
