Stock Control

There is a basic stock control function in Thesaurus Accounts which works as follows:

Firstly, products must be setup in "Add/Amend Products" in the Sales menu.

Sales - Movements out of stock

When you use the Product Invoices (New Type) for sales to customers, the system keeps a record of the number of products sold.

Purchases and other movements of stock
In the Tools menu, you will find "Enter Product Movements".
e.g. Joe Bloggs has supplied you with 1,000 widgets and 300 gadgets on 1st July 2022
Enter 01072022 as the date
Enter Joe Bloggs (with possibly an invoice number) as the reference
Enter the quantity of each item beside the relevant product names

In the Reports menu, you will find "Product/Stock Reports"

If any product movements have been entered in "Enter Product Movements" then a check box will appear "Show stock movements only". This will enable you to view movements in and out of any or all stock items within any date range.

If the check box is not ticked, the report will give analyses of sales by product.
