Always perform a backup before making changes in the Stock Manager

Often you will find that you wish to change a certain group of stock from one department/category to another department/category. There is a feature in Retailer designed to do this called Stock Manager.

  • On the top menu bar, click on Stock Maintenance -> Stock Manager.

First you must select which items to alter. These items are selected using the advanced stock search feature. To select the items to alter:

  1. If the Stock Manager grid contains stock items, click on Remove -> Remove All on the top of the Stock Manager screen. This will clear the grid and ensure that unwanted items are not included in the search.
  2. You can select (tick) specific items to work on, and filter the list on the screen. For more information on how to filter, click HERE.
  3. Click on Search.
  4. In the Advanced Stock Search screen, select the department/category you wish to swap using the department/category option on the advanced stock search screen
  5. Click Search. The Stock Manager grid will now display all stock items based on the search criteria.

Now that you have a list of items to edit, you must select them all and edit them. To do this:

  1. Click on Select -> Select All on the top of the Stock Manager screen.
  2. Click Edit Selected on the top of the Stock Manager screen.
  3. On the right-hand side of the Stock Manager screen, there are department and category options. Click the drop-down arrow next to the department/category option you wish to change and select the appropriate department/category.
