convert WO after MRP calculation looses start date

convert WO after MRP calculation looses start date
workflow:

create BOM with sub-BOM

enter WO for BOM
run MRP calculation
press MRP suggested WO's

WO for sub-BOM is suggested
press convert
while there were start dates, required dates proposed on the last screen, the start date is lost in the create WO screen (not copied over). The other date is there as expected.

thanks,

Klaus

Hi, Klaus:

There is only request quantity and request date, stockid available in the convert scripts.

Best regards!

Hi Exson,

thanks for your answer.

I had understood the MRP date to be the suggested start date.
If it is, it could be used to preset the start date in the converted WO.
I think MRP takes lead times into account and calculates date, so it would be helpful to transfer that to the WO.

I think to propose starting today does not make so much sense. What would really help woul b to propose the latest possible start date based on lead times, then I know I can shift it from future towards today, but also know I must not start later than that date if I want to complete in time.
