Stock Running Low - Order Stock

To see what stock needs to be ordered, go to ROBOTILL Manager and from the menu select 'Products and Stock' > 'Stock Running Low'.

Order Stock Running Low

The 'Stock Running Low' screen will display all stock where the stock count is below the minimum stock level. See 'Advanced Settings' in Product Setup on how to specify the minimum stock level.

From the 'Stock Running Low' screen you can easily get the supplier information by selecting the stock item and clicking on 'Get Supplier Details'. You can also export an Order List. The Order form is exported as a CSV file and can be opened and edited in Excel, OpenOffice, or any other spread sheet program. When you create the order form you can specify if the supplier details for each item should also be included in the file.

Items Out of Stock

By default ROBOTILL will allow you to sell stock that is 'out of stock' thereby going into a negative quantity on hand. This is sometimes useful as the reason why an item can be sold if it is 'out of stock' is probably because the stock receiving was not done. Instead of causing a problem at the till, the stock will then rather go into negative and the stock quantities can be corrected later.

It is however possible to add a warning at the till if a stock item is sold that is out of stock.

Out Of Stock Warning

To enable this warning message, in ROBOTILL Manager go to 'Setup' > 'System Configuration' > 'General Settings' and check the box 'Warn if item is out of stock during sale'.
