mInventory Help – Manual Adjustments

You now know that mInventory maintains several inventory levels for you and that these levels are automatically updated based on things you do with an item (buy, sell, adjust, build). You can’t just edit these levels directly. If you find a situation in which you need to adjust available inventory, you can use the “Adjust Inventory” screen. Here you will be able to increase or decrease available inventory for the item. Enter the level of the adjustment and pick the reason code. The adjustment you enter is always a positive number. The increase or decrease is determined based on the reason code you select.

To manually adjust inventory levels for an item, select the item in the inventory list and press the “Manually Adjust Inventory” button on the Action Panel or right click on the item and select the option.  You will be shown the screen below:

Enter the number of units that you want to adjust the inventory by, the cost per unit, the inventory location that will be impacted and the reason for the manual adjustment.  Then press the Save button.

Note that the adjustment quantity is always a positive number.  The inventory level will be increased or decreased based on the adjustment reason that you select in the drop down.

Editing an Existing Manual Adjustment

If you need to edit an existing adjustment, you can use the Inventory Items screen to do this. First, edit the inventory item. On the edit screen you will see a tab at the top of the called “Adjustments”. Clicking on this tab will show you all adjustments that have been made to the item. Double click on the item you wish to edit, make the changes and press Save.

To delete an adjustment, select it and press the delete button below the list.
