Sale Item Groups

This Help File Page was last Modified on 05/08/2021

The Sale Item Group Form allows you to define any number of Group Names that may later be assigned to Sale-Purchase Items.

These Sale Item Groups should be designed as a logical grouping for Sale-Purchase Items based on their use (e.g., Inventory Items, Labor Rates, Installation Packages, Recurring Revenues).

Create, then assign Sale Item Groups to Sale-Purchase Items where there are many of the same type (group).  

By doing so, because of the Advanced Sale Item Lookup function, locating a specific Sale-Purchase Item when creating a new Sale - or recording a Purchase - will be much easier and faster.


Once Sale-Purchase Items have been assigned to a Sale Item Group, they are able to be located when creating a new Sale either of two ways:

1.Individually within a Drop-Down Selection List, or

2.If you have a very long list of Sale-Purchase Items - by using the Advanced Sale Item Look Up function.

These Sale Item Groups are required when using the second method.


To open the Sale Item Group Form:

a)From the Backstage Menu System Select Maintenance and Choose General and Click the General Maintenance option which displays the Maintenance Menu, or

b)From the Quick Access Menu, Select Maintenance and Choose General Maintenance to display the Maintenance Menu.


Once the Maintenance Menu is displayed, Select Receivables and Choose Sale Item Groups.
