Setting stock alerts
The 'Stock Alerts' app allows you to set stock alert levels for each of your products. Every day the system checks the stock levels of your products against the alert levels that you have set. Each product that has fallen below the alert level will be included in the stock alert email that is sent to you each morning.
Stock alerts can only be set on products that use the stock management system.
Separate stock levels can be set for each product, but you do not need to set alert levels for every product if you don’t wish to be warned of their stock levels.
The stock alert level can only be set on the base product and not on individual variations. Once a stock alert is set on the base product any time the stock level of a variation of that product dips below the set level that variation will be included in the email.
