Groovv POS – Item Library
The Library Page
is designed to give you a full visual display of the inventory of Items and Services for your business. It also makes it easy for you to manage each of your Categories
. The Item Library
allows you to Add and Edit your Categories, Subcategories, Groups, and Items. Here, you can even Track the inventory of your Items and also set a price and cost for each Item.
To view your Item Library, select Items in the Navigation Menu, and then choose Item Library from the listings. You will see a table that organizes and displays information about your Items.
The Item Library
is a hierarchy divided into four possible classifications (from most broad to most narrow): Category, Subcategory, Groups, and Items. These classifications should be organized in a way that helps you easily locate a Item.
Categories, the highest level in the hierarchy, are shown first in the table. Categories are the broadest level of organization, within which you can add multiple Subcategories, Groups, and Items. For example, a category in a Mexican restaurant may be Tacos.
Subcategories are the second level or organization, appearing first when you click the plus sign to expand a Category. Within each Subcategory you can add Groups of Products, or just individual Products. For instance, within the Taco Category, a Mexican restaurant may have a Subcategory of Chicken Tacos.
Groups can be to a Subcategory. Groups allow you another level of organizing Products within a Subcategory, however they are not always necessary and you can choose to only list individual Products for a Subcategory. In our Mexican restaurant example, you may choose to have Groups of Hard Shell and Soft Shell in the Chicken Tacos Subcategory.
Products can be added directly to any Category, Subcategory, or Group, but to keep things clean and organized, you should separate Products out into the appropriate Category/Subcategory/Group. For example, a Mexican restaurant could add Soft Shell Spicy Chicken Taco to the Taco Category, but it makes more sense to put it in the Soft Shell Group within the Chicken Tacos Subcategory.
You can search for specific Items or Services by using the Search feature in the Item Library. To do this, enter an Item’s name or code in the first field, select a category or all categories to search from, and then select the Search button.
The Download & Update button allows you to Download and update physical counts and Items received, Import Items to your Item Library and Export active and inactive records.
Clicking on the expansion arrow, located on the left side of a Category, Subcategory or Group will expand or collapse the table and anything that is organized within that Category, Subcategory or Group.
Selecting the Actions button will allow you to Add and Edit Categories, Subcategories and Groups, by choosing an option from the dropdown menu that appears. Items can also be added from the Actions button, but you must use the Pencil Icon to edit an Item.
The Pencil Icon is used to edit an Item. Once selected you will be directed to the Edit Items page, where you can edit the status, name, unit price, unit cost, product code, description, and what Locations the Item is applied to.
This column in the table lists the name and code you assigned for each Category, Subcategory, Group or Item.
When you get down to the Item level of the table, this column will be filled in with the assigned cost of each Item.
When you get down to the Item level of the table, this column will be filled in with the assigned price of each Item.
The Status column displays whether or not the Category, Subcategory, Group or Item is currently being utilized by your business. Those that say Active in the column are Active Items, and those that are Inactive will say Inactive in the column.
