Quick question on restricted batches

When SAP was implemented on our site, batch status management was left inactive. We have a situation that could warrent activating this feature. I have a quick question/clarification:

Once a batch is flagged as restricted, I was able to perform inventory transactions to bring stock back in (RE orders/misc MIGO adjustments). It seems that once the batch has been received, it is locked in place. No bin to bin transfers withing the warehouse nor Store Loc to Store Loc within the plant seem to be allowed.

Once restricted, is the only way to move the product to new locations to temporarily unrestrict the batch, perform the transfer, and rerestrict the batch? Being a manual control, this could lead to issues if the user is not careful. I appreciate any insight offered.

    This is a standard SAP functionality. The only way to move restricted batch across storage location is to make message M7 665 to warning. But this might cause restricted batches to be issue to production or other movements might happen by mistake.

      Thanks for the reply, that is what I was aftaid of. I'm not in favor of changing that type of error message to warning, for the exact reasons you stated, so will need to discuss setting up rock solid manual contols with shipping. I appreciate your help.
