Creating a Department


A department is created to associate similar or related items. 

Handy Hint

The Inventory Balance report is consolidated by departments. When creating departments consider how you would like to see your inventory balances categorized.


Enter the Name of the Department to be created, if the name does not exist the department is added and a successful message is displayed, if a name that already exists is being added an error message is displayed.

Select Serialization Level: No Serialization, sometimes serialized, or always serialized.

If all items in the department will be excluded from discounting, check the box

ID Verificaton Prompt: If you have items that are age specific (Alcohol, Cigarettes) and you want all items in the department to prompt you to check ID, check the box This can be enabled for WinPOS
