You can also run reports on the item as well as edit the item. But you also have to adjust the items inventory. To do this click the Item Adjustments link from the left navigation.

  • The first thing you do is to select the Category. This will narrow down your selection. Once you have done that click the Next link.

  • To make an adjustment click on the item name to bring up the inventory adjustment screen. There you will have a text box where you can add or subtract to that items inventory. Adjust your inventory and click Save. A popup window will open letting you know the item has been adjusted. Now you are ready to being using your NolaPro installation as a POS.
