Illustrated instructions are available in the manual (F1) under Inventory.
Note: Before inventory can be added, first add a Consignor.
Select a Consignor and click OK. The New-Item Screen will open with the Consignor's ID auto-entered.
If part or all of the consignor's last name was used as the ID, that will appear in the ID field. Using part or all of the consignor's last name will help identify ownership later when viewing an Item ID.
The number appearing in the Item Number field will be appended by BCSS to the Consignor ID to form the Item ID. If Smith was used as the Consignor ID, the first item entered for Smith will be one and the Item ID for that item will be Smith-1.
Label Description - This description appears on the Price Tag. Space on the label is limited to 20 characters so make the description as descriptive as possible.

Use the drop-down arrows in each box to select appropriate options.
