- To set up or review inventory item defaults, select Default Information from the Maintain menu, and choose Inventory Items.
Sage 50 lets you set up default information for inventory items. Use this feature like a template or model upon which to build all your item records. You enter the most common information. Then, when you set up new inventory items and enter transactions, the default information is automatically included. In most cases, you won't have to enter anything.
In Maintain Inventory Item Defaults, you can set up default-level price calculations that determine the prices you generally charge for items.
Note: The Maintain Item Prices window lets you change these default calculations for individual items or a range of items. (Sage 50 Premium Accounting and higher)
Besides settings that determine how Sage 50 handles general issues such as out-of-stock warnings, default information for inventory includes:
- General Ledger Accounts and Costing Methods for each item class
- Item Tax and Shipping Information
- Item Custom Fields
- Item Sales Price Levels
All of this information is set up in New Company Setup. Or, you can add or modify defaults through the Maintain, Default Information menu.
