Store Setup Wizard Products & Inventory

In this Topic: Show


This topic of the Knowledge Base  discusses the Products & Inventory section of the Store Setup Wizard, which has three pages. The first page deals with suppliers, otherwise known as vendors. The second page contains settings that tell the program whether it should track inventory and if so, how should it process backorders. The third page contains miscellaneous settings such as requiring a reason to be entered when quantity on hand adjustments are made, choosing if the program should create a unique numeric barcode for each new product, or determining if multi-level pricing be allowed.

Click the Show link next to "In This Topic" at the top of this page to see a series of links in outline form, which can be used to quickly jump to that section of the topic.

In addition, major topics may provide a brief synopsis of a field's purpose or direct the reader to the appropriate section of the topic by scrolling over the image. To return to the previous location within the same page, right-click the mouse and select [Back].

In addition to the information in the Setup Wizard Knowledge Base pages, the actual program screens of the Setup Wizard also have explanatory text associated with them; hover the cursor over the fields on the screen to see it.
