There are many ways to manipulate and change your products in Thrive Inventory by Shopventory. Here are a few great options to get you started and to make the best use out of your time:
On this page
Editing on the Edit Product page
Click on any product name to begin editing:
Product Images can be managed by clicking on the "Manage images" button on the right
Changing the Product name will update all the Variants of that Product in both Thrive Inventory and your POS/E-commerce integration (including Bundle Variants).
Categories can be edited and deleted simply by typing in the field. You can have as many or as few categories as you like. You can also drag and drop Categories to re-order them.
Variants can be edited, added, or deleted by clicking the gear wheel in the Variants & Defaults sections. Variants have their own inventory quantities and appear as their own entries at the register.
SKU and Barcode fields are optional.
The "Track inventory" toggle allows you to stop counting inventory for service Products (e.g. haircuts) or other non-inventory sales. It must be turned on to add a quantity.
Converting your product (or variant) into a Bundle can be done by clicking the gear wheel in the Variants & Defaults section. This will create a relationship between products or variants where a set quantity will be deducted from another product or variant when a sale occurs.
If a Product is "Active" it is available for syncing out to your POS. If the Product is for inventory purposes only (like an ingredient or another bulk Product), you can turn this off and it will not show up for sale.
Multiple Locations can be managed here; if a location is disabled, the Product will not be tracked as part of that pool of inventory. The location and a sales channel must be enabled for a Product to show up for sale. If you see the words "No enabled integrations," you can click on that to enable a sales channel and allow sales.
List price, cost, and quantity can all be edited for each location, or you can simply Enable the Use defaults toggle
To turn a Tax Rate on or off, simply click on the slider. (Note: Available tax rates are enabled by default when creating a new Product)
Shipping data can also be managed in the product settings at the bottom of the page.
By clicking the gear cog in the top right corner of the page, you'll see ever more options including:
Sync product to integrations - This action performs a manual sync of the product to all enabled sales channels. This is a great option if you made changes to the product in Thrive Inventory, but aren't seeing them show up on your sales channel yet. For more syncing troubleshooting tips, check out this article.
View audit log - A track record of the general changes or updates that have been made to the product.
Copy Product - This action will create a duplicate version of the current product, with the exception of the SKU and we'll add the work "Copy" to the product title to avoid future confusion.
Generate SKUs - By running this task, Thrive will generate a SKU for any SKU field on the product that is currently blank. You can learn more about Thrive generated SKUs in this article.
When you're done, just click Save to keep all your changes or Close to discard them!
You can delete the product at the bottom of the page. This will delete the product and all its variants (individual variants can be removed). Deleted Products will still appear in sales reports and inventory reports, but they cannot be restored to your inventory page. They will have to be recreated.
Note: Inventory changes and updates can also be made via Spreadsheet Bulk Upload
Editing in bulk on the Inventory page
To manage the costs and quantities of more than one product at a time, click on the "Actions" button.
Be sure to leave a note when saving your changes!
