Product Use-Up Time

To enable the software to provide reminders of products your client may be running low on, when they are checking out and when scheduling appointments online. You will have to enter Use-Up Times for each product. This is the amount of time (in days) that an average client can be expected to use this product before needing to buy more.
There are two ways to do this: individual product records or mass update.

1.     Individual Product Records
Access:  Manage> Inventory> Products

Click on each product name and enter a Use-Up Time (in days). You’ll have to use your best judgment for most products, and it might be best to enter a slightly longer rather than a short use-up time so your clients don’t feel that they’re getting a “hard sell.” Some products such as tools will not have a Use-Up Time; leave them blank. Save. Repeat for all retail products.
2.     Mass Update
Access:  Manage> Inventory> Mass Update

In the Filter box, select Retail under Type and then click Go. Enter the Use-Up Time for each product listed. Be sure to go through all pages of your listing. You’ll have to use your best judgment for most products, and some such as tools will not have a Use-Up Time. When finished, click Save Changes.

*A notification will appear in the sales ticket and client log letting your staff know that the client may be running low on a product.
