I’m here to assist you in turning on the advanced inventory settings, @Shah Angad


All versions of QuickBooks Desktop can let you track inventory.


However, QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise is the only version that has a subscription-based feature called Advanced Inventory. This will enable you to use serial or lot numbers.


To turn this on, you must have the QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise and then proceed to the following steps:

  1. Go to the Edit menu and select Preferences.
  2. Click Items & Inventory from the left menu and then go to the Company Preferences tab.
  3. Check the Inventory and Purchase Orders are Active box.
  4. Select the Advanced Inventory Settings button. 

For more information about this feature, you can check out these helpful articles below:

Please know that I'm only a few clicks away if you have any follow-up questions. Take care and have a good one.
