Visual Representation in Batch Entry for Inventory Shortage Batch Entry has been enhanced with a new icon (⚠️) to provide a visual representation when there is insufficient inventory for a Procedure or BOM line. 
This validation is only performed against bin and/or lot tracked items and is based on the Site/Bin selection on each individual line. The indicator will update as appropriate based on changes to the Site and/or Bin selection and quantity requirement.
