The Stock List is a very powerful search function within Jim2. Lists are also one of the easiest features to master, and the most practical way of searching for information in Jim2. Users can define their own responsibilities by creating lists that apply to their function.



The Stock List can collate information from jobs, purchase orders, stock movements in real time for cross reference, and use archived data. Jim2 provides for searches on active and inactive stock by ticking/unticking the Active field (top right of form). This allows for monitoring current and historic trends in relation to customers, users, stock and status.


The Stock List includes the ability to flag stock as active or inactive, provided user Security allows it. Simply generate a Stock List based on any selection criteria, right click in the grid, and select Flag Stock as Active or Flag Stock as Inactive from the pop-up menu.



Please be aware that this will mark all the stock in the grid as active or inactive.


Any stock which is not marked as active will show in this list without a tick in the box under the Active column.

Sorting, searching and grouping are available as per other lists in Jim2. Select the column header in the grid, then drag it to the Group By area to group.
