FAQ

Do I have to define a storage area?

Yes, defining storage areas for your items helps streamline stock counts. These areas ideally refer to the physical locations of your items, such as "freezer" or "pantry". You can also use categories like “vegetables” as storage areas to organize your inventory list.

Can the same item be in multiple storage areas?

Absolutely! You can have the same item listed in multiple storage areas by simply copying the item and assigning it to different locations.

Can I count items in multiple units?

Yes, you can manage items in various units. For example, an item can be counted in both "kilograms" and "pieces" if needed. You can easily create multiple items and edit the “unit” field of your items in your Inventory Template.
