Providing up to date inventory and stock level information to your reps and buyers is more important than ever. In this article, we'll show you how to set up and utilize inventory and stock level columns in your Product Table!
You can have as many columns tagged inventory as you like (for example, one for each warehouse), and they will display on the product detail on each page:
If you need to ensure they are front and center in Shop and/or Sell, you can pin them by going to AMP Products, then either AMP Shop or AMP Sell, and selecting them as a pinned column:
Once you have an Inventory column (or columns), you can enable Stock Levels for even more functionality! To enable Stock Levels, create a new column to the right of a column tagged as inventory. You can name this column anything you like, but the tag must be Stock Level:
The Stock Level column does not contain user-supplied data, but rather, it looks to its left for any column tagged Inventory. If there is more than one, it will look at all of them. If there is a positive number in the column(s), it will return a value of "In Stock." If there is a 0 in the inventory column, it will return "Out of Stock." And if there is no data in the inventory column, it will return "Please Ask."
Once you have a Stock Level Column, you can do several things such as:
- Create a Filter in Sell and Shop that allows your reps and buyers to only see in stock SKUs.
- Add Corner Ribbons in Sell and/or Shop that highlight SKUs that are in stock or coming soon.
- Email Filtered Spec Sheets to reps and buyers that only contain in stock SKUs.
If you like, you can even pin this column just like you did with inventory, to show the Stock Level right in the SKU information:
With these additions to your Product Table, you'll make it easy for your reps and buyers to locate and order your in stock SKUs!
