It has amazed me over the years how ‘creative’ clients can get using QuickBooks inventory. Be it for urgency, ignorance or out of frustration, clients will usually take shortcuts or unknowingly perform a process that ultimately undermines what they are trying to accomplish. To educate the readers here, and ultimately, the end-users, I’m including here nine things you should NEVER do with QuickBooks inventory.
The navigation pane on the QuickBooks home page directs the user to follow the workflow process of simple purchasing and sales transactions. It has helped many ‘beginners’ to understand what follows after the purchase order, or estimate, etcetera. However, inventory users get lost because there isn’t a workflow guide to follow. For example, where do the Pick Tickets come in? How about Work Orders? Shipping?
The concept of moving data seems so simple – I want to move my data from one software program to another. But the reality is a lot more complicated. When transferring QuickBooks inventory data (either into or out of QuickBooks), you are usually restricted by the ‘fields’ associated with the item list, either in QuickBooks or the program you are trying to exchange data with.
