Tracking inventory for multiple locations in QBO

Hello,

 

I need help with identifying a way to track inventory for multiple locations in QBO. My question is:

 

  1. Can inventory be tracked for multiple locations in QBO?
  2. I have multiple vending machines (Soda/Snacks) that i would like to track in QBO
  3. I use a merchant service (USALive) that produces Excel(CSV) reports how can I possibly upload this info to QBO to create a usable inventory

Re: Tracking inventory for multiple locations in QBO

I'll share my thoughts in details, Abdul McWhorter. 

Yes, you can track inventory item for multiple locations by using classes

You’ll have to turn on the feature, and create a class. Once done, assign each class (location) to each item. Here’s how:

  1. Click the Gear icon.
  2. Go to Products and Services.
  3. Select the item, and click Edit.
  4. Click the Class drop-down arrow, and select the location.
  5. Click Save and close.

Regarding your second one, I’ll help you track the vending machines. Here’s how:

  1. Click the Gear icon.
  2. Go to Products and Services.
  3. Click New, then select Inventory.
  4.  Fill in the necessary fields including the Class, then click Save and close.

On your last question, you can import the items using an Excel CVS file. I’ll show you how:

  1. Go back to the Gear icon.
  2. Go to Import Data, then select Products and Services.
  3. Click Browse, select the file, and click Open.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Map the fields correctly, and click Next.
  6. Click Import.

I’ll leave an article about setting up and tracking your inventory to help you.
