Setting Up Item List & Inventory
Updated over a week ago

Item List vs. Inventory

When creating an estimate or invoice, line items are added from your Item List. Therefore, your Item List will include all of the product and services you offer, including services, products - inventory, and products - non inventory, along with relevant information such as quantity, value, and other attributes.

In contrast, your Inventory is a catalog of only the line items you have designated as product - inventory along with relevant information such as quantity, value, location, and other attributes.

Manually Adding Line Items

Select Invoices in the left-side menu, then click the Item List tab in the header, and then select Create Item.

Click on Create Item

Begin by entering a name for your new line item. You can then select whether your item is a service, a product you will track in inventory, or a product you will not track in inventory. Enter an Item # or SKU if applicable.

The price, quantity, and taxation for line items can be modified after it is inserted into an invoice. Therefore, the price, quantity, taxation, and description are not required when you create an item. If you do fill them out, they will automatically populate the line item with default values in all of your invoices, which can be modified after they are added.

You also have the option to add your unit cost, markup percentage, and a description. To learn more about Markups, click here.
