The Item Categories table lets you group inventory items together by type or function. Here are some examples of item categories:

Filters
Belts
Lubricants
Plumbing supplies

While it is not necessary to create any such categories, most MainBoss users find that such classes are a helpful method of organization. In particular, you can sort inventory reports by item category to see how much you spend on each category. This may help you make informed decisions about managing your maintenance inventory.

Note: Item categories are used when entering information about inventory items. For further information on inventory items, see Inventory Item Records.

For information on viewing item categories, see Viewing Item Categories. For information on creating and editing item categories, see Editing Item Categories. For information on printing item categories, see Printing Item Categories.
