Introduction to Inventory

By Kelsey | Updated


After you have added products to your system, they will display in the Inventory tab. The Inventory tab is where you'll view and manage your product quantities. The Product Inventory tab shows all items entered through the Products page. The Ingredients Inventory tab will show all items entered through the Ingredients page. The Products Inventory and the Ingredients Inventory tabs have the same layout and functionality. The only difference is the actual items displayed.


Inventory Tab Tour

In the Inventory tab, there are several sub-tabs that allow you to manage your inventory details. Below is a quick tour of these sub-tabs:

  1. Products Inventory: Displays all products marked as Track in Inventory along with their current on-hand quantities. In this page, you can make changes to your inventory quantities manually or via an Excel import. This setting can be found in each individual product settings under Products > Details > Inventory.
  2. Ingredients Inventory: Identical to the Products Inventory tab, but displays all ingredients marked as Track in Inventory instead of products. Ingredients must first be created and assigned through the Products tab. This setting can be found in each individual ingredient setting under Products > Ingredients.  
  3. Prep Recipes: If you have created Prep Recipes for individual products, in this page you can mark a batch recipe as Prepared.
  4. Vendors: In this page, you'll create and manage vendors
  5. Reorder: Creates new orders based on vendor information and low stock alert thresholds.
  6. Purchase Orders: Create new Purchase Orders and view a history of all Purchase Orders made within Revel. Purchase orders can also be printed, emailed, received, and labels printed from this tab.
  7. RMAs: RMA stands for Return Merchandise Authorization. In this page, you can create RMAs for damaged or incorrect items that you're returning to your vendors. 
  8. Shipping Address: Fill out your business's shipping information to automatically populate on all Purchase Orders.
  9. Transfer: If you have multiple establishments with Revel, you can transfer inventory and receive inventory from one location to another through this page.
  10. Physical Inventory: Allows you to divide your store into sections so that each section can be easily physically inventoried. You can select whether you want inventory to be to physically counted or scanned.
