Adding and deleting products
At times, you may need to add new products to your inventory or remove products. Products are always added and deleted from product setup (see product setup).
Now let's add a new product to your inventory
So you received a new product and you need to add it to product setup. We will assume that you have your products in alphabetical order. In your newly created inventory period file, first add the row in "Product Setup" where you want the new product to go (see adding and deleting rows) and proceed with the normal steps for adding the new product's setup information.
Next go to "Analytical Reports", click on the correct product category (in this case liquor). Because you are adding the new product after creating a new inventory period file, all of the product data should be zeros except for the "Starting Inventory" column. You will see the new product added and it will look like this with the "Starting Inventory" column empty.
Click on the notepad icon, select the product name from the drop-down list, enter the starting number of bottles, click add. The "Starting Inventory" column should now be populated with the entered number.
FINAL STEP: You need to go to each inventory location where the new product will be shelved, add a new row in the correct order, and select the new product name from the drop-down list (see inventory locations setup).
Deleting a product from your inventory.
When you stop carrying a product and finally run out of stock, you need to delete that product from your inventory. To delete a product, open up your most current inventory file, go to "Product Setup" and click on the product name that you want to delete and delete that row (see adding and deleting rows). The product row will be deleted in most of the program (it will be deleted automatically from analytical reports) except for your inventory locations. Go to each inventory location that the product is listed in and repeat the same process to delete the product row.Have any questions? Comment below or contact us.
