Question & Answer

1. Why You Should Set Automatic Cost Adjustment to Never in Dynamics 365 Business Central?
This was one of the topics that came up frequently while working with users at the last NAV/BC User Group Summit at Phoenix.

Many people have different opinion to setup their inventory so costing is done properly. Naturally, knowing a few things on how Dynamics 365 Business Central (aka Dynamics NAV) inventory and how inventory costing works,
I participated as much of these inventory costing discussions as I could.

One of the features that I always get in an intense discussion on is how the Automatic Cost Adjustment on the Inventory Setup should be done

Arguments for Setting Automatic Cost Adjustment to Always
I do understand the desire to want to set this property to Always. And why not? Instead of running the Adjust Cost – Item Entries manually, why not let the system run the process every time? And I do mean Every. Single. Time.
Setting the Automatic Cost Adjustment to Always allows for you to have updated and accurate cost at all times. This sounds great!
