Cycle counting - "Activity Before Count" is a live field (not manual)

Activity Before Count is a nice little field in Count Tag Entry. I read in the help that it is a manual entry:


Well, no it is not. KB0100720

OK, that’s kind of cool, though - so it figures out what you backdated to get the numbers right?

Oh, no. No, it counts any transactions at any time there was a system date/time after the freeze. Even transactions applied today for a count started yesterday.


Well that is quite a moving target we get to hit now!

Now I have to verify that every tag has an activity of zero, or modify it immediately before posting the counts - you know, unless I actually meant to use the field!

So, I kind of really hate cycle counting now.
