Navigating by dateBack to top
The following date options allow you to optimize the Inventory Calendar to meet your needs.
- Jumping to Today's DateBack to top
The calendar displays one week at a time, defaulting to the current week. Click Today to return to a view of the current week and today's inventory at any time!
- Jumping to the previous or next weekBack to top
You can jump back (<) to the previous week and/or forward (>) to the next week.
- Selecting the start dateBack to top
Alternatively, you can choose a specific start date by selecting the date from the drop-down calendar, or entering the date directly into the field provided.
Filtering by categoryBack to top
Clicking on the arrow under the Category label opens a drop-down menu of available inventory categories. By default, All categories of inventory are displayed.
Select one or more categories from the list to filter out inventory by category, leaving only those from your chosen categories.
Do you have a long list of categories? Then, simply start entering the name of the category within the search field above the open menu and the list is then limited to those values that start with the same letters. From there, you can easily select the category!
Filtering by item/productBack to top
You can also filter the Inventory Calendar for select items/products. Simply click on the arrow next to the Item/product label to open the drop-down menu and the list of available inventory displays.
This filter can be used independently or in tandem with the category filter. If one or more categories are selected, then the item/product list is restricted to those available for the selected category or categories.
As with the category filter, you can also type in the name of the item/product you are looking for in the search field and the list will be limited to those items/products that match your entry. This is a convenient option for those who have long lists of inventory!
Searching by item/product keywordBack to top
To filter the Inventory Calendar for a select inventory, simply enter a keyword in the Search field. Only items/products that contain the keyword in their name display.
Expanding or collapsing contentBack to top
When you first navigate to the Inventory Calendar, the calendar rows are expanded. Item/product sections can then be collapsed and expanded to suit your needs.
- Expand or Collapse Item/Product RowsBack to top
Expand or collapse select item/product rows via the arrow icon (>) displayed next to the item/product name.
Share or Bookmark URLBack to top
You can share a link to the Inventory Calendar! Simply copy the URL from the Inventory page browser address bar and paste the link into the desired communication channel. Clicking on the link will bring you to the Inventory Calendar with any date, category, item/product, and search filters applied.
The Inventory Calendar page can also be bookmarked within your browser so that you can quickly and easily return to your preferred view.
In order to access the linked content, recipients of shared links need to have Staff account access to view the Inventory Calendar. They will be prompted to log in if they are not already logged in when they click on the link.
