Unique Identifiers on Inventory Data File
Size, Quantity, Warehouse Columns
The next columns on the Inventory Data file are Size - the size value of the item, Quantity - the number of units available for the item, and Warehouse - the location where the inventory is located. If your brand only utilizes one warehouse, then the value in the Warehouse column will be 'default' for all of your products.
- For products that have a FUTURE availability date, the value of this future date will go in the 'Date' column.
- For products that have an IMMEDIATE availability date, either the values “immediate” or at once” should be types into the 'Date' column. This will create inventory available to be sold for an immediate delivery.
- For products that have PREBOOK quantities available, the value 'prebook' should be typed into the 'Date' column. This will allow unlimited future bookings of the product.
Notes: One product may be listed multiple times on an Inventory Data File with future date, typed 'immediate'/'at once' and 'prebook' values.
