Thank for giving us a chance to help with your inventory tracking, evafoodindustries.


QuickBooks Online offers basic inventory feature. Although, you can set up categories to track or indicate the batch where the product belongs to. Here's how:


  1. Go to the Gear icon and select Products and Services.
  2. Click New and select Inventory.
  3. Enter all other details of the product. 
  4. Click the drop-down arrow for Category and click Add new.
  5. Enter the name or details of the category and click Save.

Since your new to QuickBooks, let me share these articles with you for additional references on how the feature works: 


Please don't hesitate to reach out to us again if you need more help while setting up or tracking your products and services.
