Product sales when out of stock

When a product is out of stock, it cannot be added to an invoice. This makes sense at first, but there can be situations with incorrect stock status (data entry, returns not processed), and there is more on the shelf than the stock level says. Or a back bar item is "converted" into a sellable item on the fly.
An override would be good to sell the product anyway.
The stock level can be changed before the sale, of course. But this adds time, and not staff member may have permissions.

Thinking it further, some kind of special order would be possible with that: Client pays for an item ahead of time, then it will be ordered individually (we have a lot of special order hair items that will never be in stock).

        Is there any news regarding this? We only order retails stock after the client pays, hence we cannot invoice the client. And having to adjust the stock before is time consuming and defeats the purpose of an effortless approach.

        When I used other software you could sell the item that was out of stock and it would put inventory into negative. That would mean when I order the item in for a client and then check it in it would balance out the inventory. Would be great to be able to do this and still sell the item when its not there. Currently I am adding the stock item before I process the invoice & payment. Then when the item comes in I adjust the order. But it is fiddly to do this.
