This list can be used in a variety of ways:

  1. An inventory, or stock list. If you retail new or used items, then list them here.
  2. A price list for standard items or services.
  3. Materials which you regularly use. List standard materials here and select the supplier. If you use the BOM tab of the Order form to create a list of materials required to fulfil that order, then you can use the 'Materials for Current Orders' report to give you a collated 'shopping list' of materials which you need to fill the current orders.

The way you use the item list will affect the way that you use the Purchased Items tab of Orders, and whether you set the 'Include Purchased Items' checkbox on the Financial Details of the Order.
If you use method 1 or 2 above then you will probably want to set the 'Include Items Ordered' checkbox on the Order so that you can print an invoice listing the items the customer has purchased.
If you use Method 3 and you are charging for time and materials, then you may wish to set the checkbox in order to pull the materials onto the invoice (you can also enter time on the BOM tab and include that on the invoice too).

As described in the Overview chapter, use the Search box to locate an item by any one of its text fields; title or details, for example.

To print an item list (inventory), use the Print button or select File > Print from the menu (command-P).

Create a new item by pressing the New Item button in the toolbar, or by selecting File>New>Item. Note that the 'Product code' field is auto-filled with a sequential number, but this can be overtyped if desired.

To print out the details in the Description field, click once inside that field to make it active and use the Print button or select File > Print
