How To: Set the Minimum and Maximum Stock Quantity to Upload when using Channels 2.0

In the [ Channels | Detail | Stock ] screen, the stock and profiles grids contain a Maximum Display Qty field and a Minimum Display Qty field.

  • Maximum Qty to Upload: When sending stock levels up to the channel, if the calculated figure goes above this level, then cap it off at the maximum display quantity instead.
  • Minimum Qty to Upload: If the calculated figure goes below this level, the system will apply a minimum cap of the minimum display quantity.

The above options affect how the stock levels are uploaded as follows:

  • Individual stock items: The settings for individual stock items take priority over those for profiles. So in the example below the caps used for stock item 100 would be a maximum of 75 and minimum of 60. If the values are 0 for the stock item, then the profile setting values are used instead.
  • Stock profiles: The settings for stock items not individually set use the default profile settings. So in the example below stock items other than 100, will have a maximum of 100 and minimum of 50. If the values are zero, then no caps are applied to the stock items.

Setting the Minimum and Maximum Stock Quantity to Upload

  1. Open the [ Channels 2.0 | Detail | Stock ] screen.
  2. Press Alt+E or click the green triangle icon is the buttonbar's EDIT button to enter edit mode.
  3. If you are adding a new profile or stock item, click the Add New button, or else you can edit an existing profile or stock item.
  4. Update the information as required, see the example below for more information about setting the Maximum and Minimum Display Quantities.
  5. Press Ctrl+S or click the disk icon is the button bar's SAVE button    to save once completed.
