Please visit our COVID-19 Resources page for useful payroll and reference information. During this time, when many companies are forced to telework, AccountEdge Hosted may be a good option. Host your company file to be accessed remotely from any device, for as long as you need. You can go back to your regular setup when you no longer need remote accessibility. If you’d like to discuss that or any other teleworking solution with a product specialist, please call 800.322.6962. Be safe.

Restocking Alerts

Set Up Restocking Alerts

  1. Go to your Items List and Edit the item you want to setup with a restocking alert.
  2. Click on the buying details tab (you must have I Buy This Item checked-marked).
  3. On the lower half of this screen, you can enter the 'Minimum Level for Restock Alert'. When your inventory on hand reaches one below the number you enter here, this item will show up on the To Do List > Stock Alert tab.
  4. Optional: Set a Primary Vendor for Reorders to take advantage of the Order/Build feature on the Stock Alert tab of the To Do List. This feature will automatically create orders to the vendors listed as Primary Vendor.

Note: You cannot set the restocking alert to zero, as zero is the default in AccountEdge and is interpreted as not activated.
