Quick Stock Balance Doctype User Experience

Hello Community,

I’m trying to understand why “Quick Stock Balance” doctype requires a date field? I want to get some of your experience if you ever really get backdated stock balance?

Currently you need to specify the exact warehouse the item is in to get the available qty. However, if you want to know the qty of that Item in a isle you cannot because “get_stock_balance” doesn’t support child warehouse.
If we remove the date field and lookup only current stock balance from this form we can use “get_latest_stock_qty” which will support looking up stock balance for child warehouses.

What are your thoughts?
