If you are tracking a product's inventory, you can set an alert to notify you when the inventory is running low. Before you can set the alert, you must first enter the product's inventory so that it will be tracked. See Tracking a Product's Inventory.
To set an alert, follow these steps:
1. On the Products page, hover your mouse over the product name until the icons appear to the right.
2. Click the Alert (bell) icon.
3. Enter the quantity that this item will reach before you are notified.
4. Click Save.
NOTE: When the inventory for a tracked item falls below the threshold that you set for the alert, the item will appear in the Critical Inventory Report and in the Critical Inventory section on your Dashboard. You will also see a warning on the Product Lists page. Also note that the Critical Inventory widget will only display if inventory is being tracked.
