Inventory Management

Getting Started

BluSkus is easy to use. We recommend that you set up your locations first before adding products. This makes it easier to manage.

After your locations are set, you are ready to add your first product.

Setting Up Locations

Locations are physical locations such as your office, warehouse, garage, or store location.

Any stock in a location is added to your total inventory.

Add A Location

From the left menu, go to Locations -> View/Edit. Enter a location name and press "Add Location".


Add A Product

From the left menu, go to Products -> View. Click "Add Product".

The product will be created and saved immediately. Add all information and press "Update".

Moving Products

BluSkus has a convienent method to move multiple products at once from one location to another.

Create A New Move

From the left menu, go to "Move"

Enter a name and description then select the Location where you want to move products to. This defines the Move To location for all of the products.

Save your changes and the start searching for products.

The search results will show you all products matching your query. Select the product you wish to transfer. Once selected - you can now specify how many products to move from one location to the other.

The App will restrict the number to the maximum available in the location. In addition, it will find any other products that have move events in Draft status and hold those quantities as well. This will prevent accidentally moving more products than possible.

Finalizing The Move

When you are ready to commit the move. Just change the status to Complete and the stock adjustment will be made for all products in the move event.
