Item type

A type of item master, either Purchase, Cost, Build, Service.

  • Purchase: A purchase is an item that can be bought.
  • Cost: A cost is any item that is not sold as is. A cost can be used for manufacturing an item that will be sold, or it can be a necessary item for running the warehouse, like lightbulbs and toilet paper. All cost items are recorded as expenses.
  • Build: A build is an item that you manufacture or assemble from cost items.
  • Service: A service is any work that is provided, such as the assembly of a gift basket or the manufacture of a tool.

Group

The Item Master Group to which this item belongs. This is an optional classification of item masters created by the administrator. The default group is "All". (If the group is "All" it usually means that your company has not assigned an item master group to this inventory's item master.)
