Why I must check availability manually? What is the sense of this button?

can somebody please explain the sense of the "Check Availability" button? Why the availability is not checked automatically? How this check integrates in the stock workflow? In other ERPs I never had to check the availability manually. Either the products are at stock or not and the ERP knows that.

Thank you.

You don't have to check availability manually.

The scheduler is a process that is usually run via a cron job overnight, or between shifts - and will automatically check availability when run.

The "Check Availability" button is only required if you want to update the status in between runs of the scheduler.

Good explanation.

See http://help.openerp.com/question/9868/how-to-enable-mrp-scheduler-configuiration-in-webclient-view/ - also please ask new questions separately from existing questions - this helps keep things clear for everyone.
