Export Manager

The Export Manager allows you to export stock information to files so that it can be imported into other applications. This can for example be used to update scale software with new prices and products. Another use could be if you want to print out price lists for customers. You can export to CSV, open in Excel, do some formatting and then print the price lists.

Note: You can also export stock with Bulk Stock Import and Update.

To open Export Manager, go to Menu > Tools > Export Manager in ROBOTILL Manager. You can setup multiple export projects. You can then export using one of these projects as often as needed
