I built a custom process to set inventory levels for our products based on a spreadsheet I receive from our internal ERP.
The issue I am seeing is that since our products all have "track inventory" disabled, I need to somehow enable this setting on the fly when I adjust the inventory levels, or else do it via the bulk editor. The bulk editor solution would work but I noticed our products all default to negative inventory levels, which means once I turn on this setting, all our products will be temporarily shown as being out of stock until I quickly send an adjustment batch update through the API. This isn't an optimal solution.
Is there a way to set the inventory levels to positive levels in bulk, at the same time of turning on the track inventory setting?
