What’s the difference between warehouse status change and inventory status change?

When the items in your warehouse are no longer available for sale — or items become available for sale  the change needs to be reflected in your inventory. In this situation, users can either take advantage of the periodic tasks inventory status change, or warehouse status change. What’s the difference?

An infolog will ask if you want to convert status from available to blocked. Click <yes>.
