Managing Inventory Transactions

  • Dark

The Inventory transactions table and page allows users to update information regarding inventory items.

Inventory Transactions are used by the following roles:

  • Agents, or other users in an organization responsible for inventory, specify when inventory items are moved or stored in a new location.
  • Technicians specify when inventory items are borrowed or used for a service task.

The Inventory transactions table can be viewed as a table from the Inventory page of the associated inventory item. Additionally, you can click the image.png button to open the table in a new window.
