Last updated 09/08/2018

This article explains how stock levels can be updated from Cin7 to Brandscope.

Overview


Stock levels can be updated from Cin7 to Brandscope to ensure you can display accurate stock levels to your customers.

You have the option to update stock levels for all your products or only those products that have had recent transactions.

In order to update stock to Brandscope, the product in Cin7 must have the Channel ticked for "Brandscope".

Updating All Stock levels


To update stock levels for all products:

  1. From the left navigation, select Integrations, then click Brandscope.
  2. Click Update All Stock Levels.

Updating Recently Modified Stock Levels


If you have thousands of products, it may be more desirable to update only those products that have recently been dispatched or received. Recently modified products include all products that have been modified since the last time the stock was updated.

To do this:

 

  1. From the left navigation, select Integrations, then click Brandscope.
  2. Click Update Recently Modified Stock Levels.
    The number of products that will be affected is displayed in brackets to the right of this link.

FAQs

Is it possible to update stock levels automatically?

Yes - there is a setting in the Sales Order module that will allow stock levels to be updated for all your integrations each time a sales order is created. Please see Automatic Stock Level Updates.

How frequently should I update the stock levels?

Because stock levels will be diminished in Brandscope as soon as an order is made, there is no need to update stock levels frequently, unless other sales channels are causing your inventory to change.

For instance if your eCommerce store pulls from the same inventory as your Brandscope stock, it may be desirable to update stock levels more frequently to ensure your Brandscope stock levels are up to date.

Can I determine what stock levels are updated to Brandscope?

Yes, there are a few settings that determine what stock levels are updated. Please see Brandscope Settings.

Can I update virtual stock levels to Brandscope?

Yes, you'll need to do a few things to enable this.

  1. First enable virtual stock levels in your Cin7 account. To do this, please refer to our help article on Enabling and Viewing Virtual Stock.
  2. Once this has been enabled, your virtual stock levels will be applied to the Updating Stock Levels in Brandscope function.

If you are wanting to push branch specific virtual stock, you can do so by following the steps in our Brandscope Settings help article.
