Setting up Full and Minimum Capacities

Setting up Full and Minimum Capacities will help you keep your inventory stocked without over filling it.

Full Capacity – The ideal amount you want in your inventory when you are fully stocked.

When re-ordering from your storage location through transfers or from your wholesaler in Automatic Purchase Orders, Nova will recommend how many to order based off of your Full Capacity.

Minimum Capacity – This is the number that you do not want your inventory to go below before ordering more.

In Nova Alerts you can sign up to receive an alert when your inventory reaches or goes below the Minimum Capacity.  In addition when your inventory number goes below the Minimum Capacity the line will light up in Pink to alert you that you are running low.
