We refer to all movement of inventory as Inventory Shipments in MyBlackbird, which is why this term is now used in place of Purchase Orders. To access your Inventory Shipments, you must first navigate to the Shipping & Delivery Management Block and then select the Inventory Shipments Block. 

Adding Inventory to a Shipment

Once you've created an Inventory Shipment, you're ready to begin adding products & inventory to the Shipment to receive into the POS. To add inventory to your Shipment, start by clicking the Add Inventory button. 

 

Next, select the brand of the product you are going to intake. Once done, you will be able to select which specific product from this brand we want to intake. If the product you're looking to add does not exist in the drop-down menu, you will have to select the Add New Product button and create the new product in the system. 

After selecting the product, you will have to choose what subcategory you want the product to live under. These subcategories are defined by you in your Settings & Configurations Block. Learn more about subcategories here!

Once the subcategory has been selected, we just have to click the Add Product button. This will bring up the side menu of all the information you need to put in to intake the inventory.
