Inventory feature improved

Fluent Forms goes beyond simple form-building solutions. It provides you with the ability to create product order forms. And when it comes to product order forms, keeping track of your inventory is crucial for your business. 

In the latest Fluent Forms 5.0.8, we have improved the inventory feature by adding an inventory details page where you can see a summary of the initial inventory. 

There are options to hide or disable the input field for ordering products if they are out of stock.
