How do I create an item?

To create an item:

  • Go to the Items module on the left sidebar.
  • Click + New in the top right corner of the page.
  • In the next page, enter details such as Name, Type, Sales Information, and Purchase Information of the item.
  • If you have enabled inventory tracking for your organisation, check the Track Inventory for this Item box.
  • Select an Inventory Account.
  • Fill in other details such as Opening Stock and Opening Stock Rate per Unit.
  • Click Save.

Once you’ve enabled inventory tracking for an item, with every associated Sales/Purchase transaction, the stock quantity is auto-adjusted.

Note: You cannot disable inventory tracking for an item once you have added the item to a transaction.
