How to create and manage inventory locations

  • Updated

 

In this article, you will learn how to create and manage inventory locations.

Workiz’s inventory management lets you see your stock levels and inventory usage from anywhere using any device. Every usage, stock change, or return is logged and easily tracked.

Workiz allows you to have stock levels organized by locations so that you know exactly how much stock (as well as the cost and sale value of that stock) exists in a particular place. You can create specific locations unique to your business. For example, a location could be a warehouse, office, vehicle, or any other place you may store inventory items.

Creating a location

In order to create inventory locations, you will first need to enable the Inventory add-on from the Marketplace.

To learn more about enabling the add-on, please see this article.

When activating the Inventory add-on with Workiz, you will automatically be provided with a primary location called Main Container. This location cannot be deleted, but it can be edited so that it reflects the actual primary inventory location for your service business (e.g., warehouse, office, etc.).

You can also create additional locations to keep better track of where your inventory units are.

  1. From the sidebar navigation, select Inventory
  2. Select the Locations tab
  3. From the Locations tab, select Add new
  4. Create your location:
