Introduction

To keep your data accurate, you must start and finish your inventory count in a period where there are no sales in your venue.

If items are being sold while taking inventory, you won’t have accurate data.

For example, lets say you start an inventory count on Tuesday morning but are unable to finish it, and service begins. When you resume on Wednesday morning, you'll have sold items and the counts you took the previous day no longer reflect what you have in stock.

If you continue the inventory count, your consumption, variance, and sales data won't be correct.

Canceling an Ongoing Inventory

If you start an inventory and are unable to finish it before sales occur in your venue, follow these steps to cancel it:

Mobile App

  3. Tap "Cancel"

  4. Tap "Cancel Ongoing Inventory"

  3. Click "OK" on the confirmation pop-up

  4. The inventory is cancelled and no longer appears on the "Inventories" page

Restarting an Inventory Area

Lets say you started an inventory on Tuesday and didn't finish it, but completed counting in an area. Sales occurred in your venue on the Tuesday night, and you continued the inventory Wednesday morning instead of canceling it.

You count the remaining areas, which have an accurate stock count. What do you do about the area counted on Tuesday?

Instead of cancelling the whole inventory, you can restart that area.

Note: After restarting the area, make sure to change the inventory start time to the current date.
