New Feature for Attributes

We have added an exciting new feature for merchants who want to track their inventory in stock for items with multiple attributes.  For instance lets say you sold t-shirts and you have 3 sizes, Small, Medium and Large and 3 colors, Red, Blue and Green.  You have only 1 of each color and size combination and you dont want to sell more then you have.  Up until now you could not use the store to keep track of the fact that you had 1 small green and 1 small blue and 1 small red and so on.  You can now do so.

This feature is available from Inventory–>Items –>Attribute Intersection

Important points to keep in mind:

  • Quantity control must be enabled for the item or quantity will NOT be checked
  • The quantity in stock for the item should include how many total items you have in stock as it will also be checked before allowing purchase.  Ie in the example above there would be 9 total t-shirts if we had 1 of each option.  If you dont care about the item quantity you can enter some large number there, ie 9999.
  • There is no edit or add screen for this functionality currently.  The only way to insert and/or update records is via the import and export.  Based on demand, we may in the future add an edit/add screen for this functionality.
  • The quantity in stock will be updated based on your stores inventory settings just like it is done for all other inventory quantity in stock.
