Item categories allow you to group your inventory items into like groups to ease searches and reports. You can also specify different seasons for each category, so that stocking levels for items can vary with the demand of the different seasons.
From the Main Menu, select Admin -> Setup - Inventory -> Item Categories..
Your screen should look similar to this:
Item Category: Select the Item Category to edit from the drop-down list and click Edit.
To add a new item category, click Add.
Whether selecting Edit or Add, your screen should look similar to the following:
Item Category: - Edit the name of the category, if necessary.
Print Items Category: (for NolaPrint customers) Check this box if this Item Category is a Print Items Category. You must have AT LEAST ONE of the categories check-marked as a print item category in order for the updates of inventory to work correctly from the Printshop Module.
Season: - Enter up to four(4) seasons for this product group. Seasons allow you to specify different stocking levels for an item depending on the season. If the product category is not seasonal, enter a 1 for the beginning month and a 12 for the ending month.
