In this article, you will learn how to convert items into trackable inventory items in Workiz.

Items and services are reusable line items you create and store on your Workiz account to save yourself time when creating estimates or invoices. You can add useful information like the item's name, cost, and the price you want to charge.

On their own, items and services cannot be tracked to monitor stock levels. In order to monitor stock levels, you will need to enable the inventory add-on from the Workiz Marketplace. For more information on the inventory add-on, please see this article.

While you can create new inventory-managed items from the Inventory page, you can also convert your existing items into inventory items to save yourself some time.
