From first release of magento Stock Inventory Manager extension we set the goal to save as much as possible time on managing inventory of your magento store. As you may know is different approach to solve this task :
- Edit inventory data right in administration interface of magento
- Update stock inventory data by uploading CSV/XML files
- Update inventory data with automation extension or tools
The difference between this approaches is in how much time you will spend to manage inventory management tasks and how much money you need invest into each specified tool or combinations of listed tools above.
The main focus of Stock Inventory Manager magento extension is allow you to manage stock inventory in most easiest and fastest way by improving magento standard user interface with less money investment and time.
From some point of view magento have routines process and standard user interface which required some not necessary actions which in sum required huge amount of time to complete inventory management tasks, especially if you have big amount of products in catalog.
So, with Stock Inventory Manager v1.2.0 we move forward with this tasks and decide to improve standard magento user interface.
In version 1.2.0 of extension you can find new blue button ‘Save Changes’ — so now you can edit Quantity and Stock Status (Is In Stock) products attributes right in product grid and click ‘Save Changes’ button to save changes. You don’t need to select products individually after editing products data anymore — Stock Inventory Manager will do it for you automatically, so we remove more one routine step.
We adds two mass actions:
- Update: Qty
- Update: Is In Stock
So now you can click on each particular products to select them and select required actions. In appeared popup window you can specify value which should be applied to select list of products.
After clicking ‘Apply’ button extension will apply specified value to all selected products and will save it.
Below you can find short video which show how it works now.
As you can see new 1.2.0 version of Stock Inventory Manager magento extension has simple but in same time strong time saving changes. Some of our customers have already evaluated the benefits of this changes in extension.
