Scroll Prev Top Next More

Stock Select is available by clicking the ellipsis [...] from within the stock grid on a job/purchase/quote, as well as from the View/Edit Stock icon in the Stock tab on the ribbon. It will help to search and narrow down choices for inclusion. It will show the available quantity of each stock at each location, which may affect the decision about exactly which stock to choose to supply.


Filtering stock in the Stock Select window

1.Start entering information into the Stock Code or Desc. field.


Text can be included within stock detailed descriptions when searching. To include detailed descriptions in search results, tick Include Detailed Desc.

2.By default, the Location will default to where the user is, eg. NSW. Select another location if required.

3.Click Run to display search results.

Viewing stock in all locations

The default view is to show stock in one location only, but if clicking Show all Locations will open an extra section at the bottom of the screen. This pane will show stock quantities in each location, for the currently highlighted stock code. Note that while this pane is open, Show all Locations will be highlighted in blue. Click this button again to close the locations pane.

In the above example, it can be seen that as well as the 23 units in NSW, there is additional stock in QLD and BULK. So, for instance, 4 units are required for a job, this would provide the opportunity to transfer 1 unit from another location, rather than order in more stock from the supplier.



Once stock is chosen, clicking OK will add the selection to the stock grid.


Multiple stock select

When in the Stock Select screen, select multiple stock codes by entering an amount in each stock code under Select Qty.
