For every location or shelf you have on your IndicaOnline account you are also given a storage for your inventory management. This way, you can have your inventory that is not currently on your storefront for purchase be stored in the back office so you can properly track and move product to your storefront when you are out of stock. Also we recommend that you check in products first to your storage and then pull from the total inventory over to your storefront when you are ready to sell your products.
Adding A Storage
If you need to add a storage for your location / shelf, you'll need to do so on your IndicaOnline website management page (This cannot be done on the iPad). Head over to Config > Offices & Storages and then click on the Add Office/Storage button located on the top right.
After clicking on the button you'll see the below image pop up. Based on your IndicaOnline package plan you have, you'll be limited to the amount of storages you are able to have. Again for each location / shelf you have your account you'll also be given a storage for your inventory.
Now that you've selected to add a new storage, you'll then need to name the new storage. It is suggested that you include what store this storage is directly tied to so that you'll avoid any confusion if you have multiple locations with your IndicaOnline account.
***IMPORTANT INFORMATION IN REGARDS TO STORAGES***
-You cannot create sales that pull inventory from a storage. You'll need to first transfer products from your storage to your storefront beforehand if you are out of stock and need to restock your location.
-You cannot assign an iPad register to a storage, only a storefront shelf. You can still manage the inventory stored in a storage from an iPad if you have the correct staff permissions to do so.
-Just like shelves, you can limit your staff members to having access to these storages by selecting the Config > Staff > select the staff profile > Overview > Edit and scroll to the button where these specific permissions are granted or restricted.
