Hierarchy of Stock (2021)
(see image attached)

Idealpos is able to be configured however you choose, but it is a good idea to sit down and work out the database structure before attempting to program the data.


There are three available levels of reporting with Stock Items when they are created in the database. Setup of Stock Items contribute the bulk of programming your database and you want to ensure that this is managed as easily and effectively as possible. In order to that, you will need to work out the grouping types used to keep your items manageable.


The three levels available are Sales Categories, Departments and Stock Items. Sales Categories group the Departments, which in turn group the Stock Items. Stock Items will influence reports of the Department and Sales Categories of which they are linked.


Any changes that take place after the items initial programming will only take place when the change is made. Previous sales history will NOT be affected or display this change.
