What is a Threshold and Threshold Type

A Threshold is the inventory level you want to trigger a notification. This notification allows is what we call a Threshold Type alert. We use a Threshold Type of Warning if you're running low and Critical when it is time to re-order. 

  

Setting Up Inventory Threshold Level Limits

IMPORTANT!

You must check the Low Inventory Alerts box for at least one of the three levels described below to receive an alert.

 

You can manage your inventory level limits in three different ways. Either globally, per warehouse or per SKU.

To set up your threshold for any level, follow the steps below.

NOTE:

The quantity on your Warning alert must always be higher than your Critical alert. You can opt to only enter quantity on either the Warning or Critical alert. You cannot save an inventory amount lower than one.

 

Global Level

1) Go to PRODUCTS -> Inventory Manager.

2) Click on the gear icon next to Edit.

  • Antonio,

    Thank you for the request. We released the inventory alerts in the UI as the initial phase of our low inventory alerts feature. I let our product team know about your request to add this into excel.

    Thank you,
