Section "Distinctions management"

In the section «Distinctions management» you can set up distinctions for your goods.

Use Distinction only if they distinguish between goods within the same SKU number. If goods have an individual SKU number in each Distinctions you not need to enter the Distinctions. For example, there is little point in using sizes to differentiate between different packages of beauty goods. Each packaging will have its own SKU number.

No Distinctions have been created by default.

Creating of Distinctions is similar to creating categories. To create Distinctions, click the green button “Create” and enter a name. For example, “Footwear sizes”. Click the button “Create”.

To create size values, choose them and click the button “Create” once again. Repeat until you have created all values.

Same as categories, Distinctions can be nested. For example, “Sizes” can comprise properties such as “Clothes sizes”, “Shoes sizes”, “Glove sizes” etc.
Now create goods which this sizes are used for. Go to a section “SKU cards management” and create new good “Shoes”. Fill the form and choose a group “Shoes size”.

Further learn to receipt goods with different sizes to the storage. Go to the main page and in block «Operation» and choose “Receipt”. On the left panel choose tab “SKU cards”. Choose recently created good — “Shoes”.

What to do if your goods have two or more properties (Distinctions)?

For example, you deal in footwear that differs not only in size, but also in colour?
In order to keep your records user-friendly and correct, enter every footwear colour as a separate SKU card. Another footwear colour, another SKU number. Each of your SKU numbers will have 1 property — footwear size.

Why so?

The whole point is that the ultimate objective of accounting is an easy-to-use report, which leads to correct conclusions. If you set up a number of properties on a goods card (Distinctions), your reports will not give you an adequate picture which will allow you to make the right management decisions.

Nevertheless, we agree in principle that you may want to do it this way for a good reason. That is why our system allows you to set up a number of properties for an item of goods. This option is available on request. Write to us at «support» and we will set up for you as many properties for each item as you may require.

Do not use properties unless necessary. Create properties in such a way so that you do not have to edit them later. If in doubt as to whether your goods have Distinctions that need to be set up, put off creating them “till later”. Who knows? You may never need them after all.

Now go to the section “Goods and Services”. This is a very important section.
