Keeping track of the stock you have in inventory is one of the most important parts of running a business. 🤓  You need to know how much you have, when it’s running low and when it might be going out of stock. After all, you’d hate to disappoint an eager (paying!) customer.

Before you add any stock to a product's Stock Status value, it will be null, with a +[blank] indicator beside the field.

Once you add stock to this product, the current stock quantity will display directly to the right of the Stock Status field, after the +.

The Hist link will take you to this product's Stock History table, where you can see the full history of changes to this product's stock status.

The On Hold quantity shows how many of this product have been ordered but not processed.
