Category details for inventoried items and preferred vendors

There are two additional detail sections for Inventory categories and a place to set your preferred vendors for purchasing.

Inventory

This section allows you to set up inventory reordering targets and enable shipping integration. You can also set the default location for storage (Default Bin) and assign a product manager (Manager).

The Cycle field is used to assign the inventory count cycle. Actual BalDemand, Available, On Order and Estimated are automatically calculated based on the sales and purchasing activity.

Vendors

This section of the screen is available for items, inventory items, and purchase categories, allowing you to set up a list of vendors from whom you buy the product or service. You can set a preferred vendor to help automate purchasing and you can also set the approximate lead time in days (optional) for the arrival. You can also enter notes for each vendor record. (Yellow indicates there is a note. White indicates there is no note.)
