I've got a product which is available in 2 colours.

Currently I've got the colour as a "Feature" so that users can select the colour directly from the product listing page and add it to their order without needing to go into the product detail page.

However, I'd like to be able to use the stock control option and can't see a way to do this by using the "feature" approach.

For example, I'd like to be able to:
* set stock levels for units in colour A
* set stock levels for units in colour B
* receive alerts if an individual colour runs low
* be able to see the remaining in stock for each individually
* and as a combined total if possible (although not essential)

Am I right in thinking I need to remove the "feature" option, and instead add it as a sub product via the "inventory" section?

If so, how do you make this compulsory as I need users to confirm which colour option they require.

Also, does anyone have a good definition of what the difference between a "feature" and an "inventory item" is? Based on the examples I've seen, there seems to be some overlap so I want to ensure I use the right one.

kassa, you already right, if u like to have stock control, you should use inventory products, and not using features.
