Creating an article

Required step: Stock Keeping Units (SKUs)

Click the Add Article button, which opens up the Add articles page. The first thing to do is select an SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) to which the articles are connected.

Next, you can create and define article specifications. Depending on your requirements and products, specifications are a flexible way to describe and define details about articles.

Lastly, you define the article identifiers either by auto-generating them or using your own custom identifiers. If you use auto-generated IDs, you only need to define the number of articles you want to create. If you decide to use your own identifiers, the quantity of articles is determined based on the number of custom ids you add to the input field.

Specifications

Depending on your requirements and products, specifications are a flexible way to describe and define details about your articles.

You can use specifications to add meta-information about your article: E.g., Manufacturer, Model, Color, etc. 

Identifier

Rentle can auto-generate identifiers for your articles, or you can choose to add them manually.

With auto-generated IDs, you define the number of articles you want to create. With custom identifiers, the quantity is determined from the number of custom ids you add to the input field.

Connect products to inventory

After creating your inventory articles, the next step would be to connect them to products. In practice, you define which articles you need from your inventory when fulfilling an order.

 

Delete inventory specifications

It is not possible to delete the fixed specifications provided by Rentle. (e.g. status, times used etc.) Any custom specifications you create can be deleted. Follow the steps below: 

1. From your main navigation go to Inventory and click on the articles tab

2. Inventory specifications are displayed as columns in the table. 

3. To delete a custom specification, click on the three vertical dots menu next to the specification name. 

4. Click on the delete action on the menu.
