About material inventory adjustments

In this article, we'll cover:

Material Inventory Adjustment

A Material Inventory Adjustment is created whenever the stock level is changed for a Material.

Inventory Adjustments are automatically added based on events that trigger changes in your stock level such as Purchases and Manufactures.

You can also add your own inventory adjustments – this is the recommended way to track breakages and loss. 

Note: Stock should not be increased using inventory adjustments as it will cost zero.

A starting inventory adjustment can also be added to account for any stock "brought forward" from a previous system into Craftybase. For more information on how to approach your initial stock backdating, please look at our article here:  How to initially backdate your stock in Craftybase.
