The INVENTORY SETTINGS page is separated into two sections:

  • Inventory Settings which enable global application of important inventory attributes to all products
  • Forecasting Settings which determine default criteria for velocity and forecasting metrics and reporting.

Inventory Settings

Low Stock Threshold Set your universal low stock threshold which means a value entered here will set the same low stock threshold for all of your products. This can be overridden for individual products on the product’s details page. Once a Low Stock Threshold is set, you will be alerted whenever a product’s Available stock level drops below the threshold. Learn more.

Safety Stock

Set your universal safety stock to be applied to all of your products. This can be overridden on an individual product’s details page. Safety Stock is the amount of stock you always want to have on hand and is subtracted from your Available stock in store updates. Learn more.
Lead Time Set your universal lead time to be applied to all of your products. This can be overridden on an individual product’s details page. Lead Time is the number of days between when your supplier receives your purchase order and the inventory is delivered to you. Learn more.
