This topic describes the actions you can do in the Availability section of the Back Office.


To start working with availability, navigate to Catalog > Availability.


This section allows inventory managers, or other team members responsible for stock updates, to check the products’ stock. The main advantage is that you do not need to make any manual calculations. The system does all the calculations automatically and you get the aggregated availability value. You will have a single table with a comparison of the product’s stock value and the ordered value. It also calculates the bundled products stock. See Availability: Reference Information.


Checking Availability

To check the product availability:

  1. In the Actions column of the Products availability list table, click View next to the corresponding product item. This will take you to the Product Availability page. See Availability: Reference Information for more details.
  2. In case of a multistore setup, in the Store drop-down select the store locale to check the product’s availability for each specific locale.

Editing Stock

To edit the product stock:

  1. On the Product Availability page of the product whose variant availability you would like to change, click Edit Stock for the corresponding variant.
  2. On the Edit Stock page, specify Quantity for the product (for the needed warehouse, if several are set up).
  3. Select Never out of stock if you want the product to be always available.
  4. Click Save.

Product stock the DECIMAL(20,10) value, which means that your product stock can be 20 digits long and have a maximum of 10 digits after the comma. For example, 1234567890.0987654321.


To edit the bundled product stock:

  1. Navigate to the Product Availability page of a bundle whose bundled product variant availability you would like to change.
  2. Click View bundled products in the Variant availability table.
  3. In the Bundled products table that opens, click Edit Stock for the corresponding variant.
  4. On the Edit Stock page, specify Quantity for the product (for the needed warehouse if several are set up).
  5. Select Never out of stock if you want the product to be always available.
  6. Click Save.
Note
Please note that you are updating the product variant availability, not the bundle availability itself. To see examples on how the bundle availability is calculated, see [Availability: Reference Information](/docs/scos/user/back-office-user-guides/202009.0/catalog/availability/references/reference-information-availability.html).
