Inventory Status Report Overview

The Status Report screen within SapphireOne Inventory Mode enables the user to view the current status of all inventory items. The user has the ability to view the status of Current Orders and Backorders, as well as the minimum and maximum stock levels currently set for the inventory item. These reports can be reported by Reorder, Level, Status, Serial and Unposted Serials.


When the Status Report is selected from the Inventory Reports Menu, SapphireOne will present a print dialog screen for the user to select and customise the criteria and data they would like included within the Status Report.

The user can select from the Print Destination, Inventory Type, Report Type, Report Sort Order and Report Selection drop-down menus to determine the preferred report layout. Reports are created using a combination of the selected metrics.
