Purchasing Inventory

Hi Folks,

I’ve just started using the desktop version and trying to find my way around, one thing I work out is; I’ve purchased an item for my stock, all my stock is imported so I pay up front, how do I include this into the files?
I noticed on the trial company Northwind, in Purchase Invoices, there is a field “Inventory on hand” I can’t seem to find this option. Could someone steer me in the right direction please, thanks in advance.

The guide is there for first timers for all to read.


Read under inventory topic.

Start here: https://guides.manager.io/11111. Then read the other Guides mentioned in the first one.

Thank you for the replies, I have following the guide but in Purchase Invoices in the Account drop down menu, “Inventory on hand” is not displayed?
Any suggestions?

Once an inventory item is selected in the Item field, the account is automatically selected. By default, this will be Inventory on hand and cannot be changed:

That is because there are so many functions hard-coded in the program that interact with this account as inventory transactions move through.

That’s great, thank you for your help.
