Committed The total quantity of backordered/unshipped Sales Orders that involve the stock item. These are listed under the Committed tab.
On Order The total quantity of all backordered/unshipped Purchase Orders involving the stock item. These are listed under the On Order tab.
On Transfer The total quantity of all unposted stock journals involving the item. These transactions are listed under the On Transfer tab.
Note: If the Include Unposted option is on, unposted stock purchases and sales will be included in the Effective Stock calculation.
