You can get to this part of the system by clicking on the Products link in the blue Admin Toolbar and then clicking Precuts. Click on Products > Precuts to begin.
To use the Precuts module,
- Select what product the precuts are being cut from (the source product).
- Set the number of Precuts being made, (the conversion ratio).
- Select the product you want the precut inventory added to (the destination product).
- Click the Make Precuts button. It will pull inventory from the source products and add new inventory to the destination product based on the ratio selected.
Tada! Your inventory will automatically be updated for both the selected products, (the source products and the destination product).
Important Note: Once you click the “Make Precuts” button, there is no de-assemble function at this time. Deleting a Precuts product or inventory will not return the inventory to the originating product the precuts was made from. Any precuts you wish to return the originating product inventory must be done so manually.
Here’s an example, say Susan selects Bella Solid Scarlet as a Source Product and Cotton Fat Quarters as the Destination Product. Susan wants to make 4 Cotton Fat Quarters. To do this, she enters 4 as the # Precuts to make next to Bella Solid Scarlet.
After clicking “Make Precuts”, Susan's inventory for Bella Solid Scarlet is decreased by 1 and her inventory for Cotton Fat Quarters is increased by 4. And she’s set! Customers can now easily buy her precuts online.
