Items with Multiple SKUs
Within Craftable Items have a many to one relationship. Meaning one Item can have multiple SKU Numbers, vendors, or Pack Sizes (PUs) associated with it. Instead of creating duplicate items you want to have multiple purchase units (so ways you can purchase this item) all against the single item.
Adding Multiple SKUs or PUs Manually
To add Multiple SKUs/PUs to an existing or new Item:
1. Navigate to Items & Vendors > Items > find your Item > and click on the Purchases tab.
2. Once you have found the Item (Ex: 1800 Silver 1L) and clicked on the Purchases tab you can then add your new Purchase Units with SKU Numbers. Whether you are adding a new PU from the same Vendor or a different Vendor the steps will be the same:
Click +Add Purchase Unit. In the window that pops up select your Vendor, enter the number of the Count Unit, and give the Pack Size a name > Click +Add.
Same Vendor - I've used the same Vendor (Breakthru), but selected a different Purchase Unit (12x1L), SKU number (123333), and Purchase Unit Name (Case). Keep in mind this is all setup under 1 Item, my 1L bottle of 1800 Silver.
Different Vendor - I've used a different Vendor (Bonollo), Purchase Unit (6x1L), SKU Number (111222), and Purchase Unit Name (Pack). Keep in mind this is all setup under 1 Item, my 1L bottle of 1800 Silver.
3. After all other Purchase Units from Vendors have been added you will click Save Item.
4. To confirm that all this information has been added under one Item and you haven't created duplicate you can search in two different locations:
a) The Search bar on the Items page
b) The Universal Search bar at the top of the page
You can see in the video below that only one Item of 1800 Silver 1L exists within the Craftable platform.
Adding New/Multiple SKUs or PUs from an Invoice
Adding a Substitute Manually
When you add a Substitute manually, it'll essentially be the same asadding a new Purchase Unit. You have the option when adding this Substitute to the Item Panel to leave this as "Receive Only". This will keep you and your team members from ordering this Substitute by default, but leave it available for occasionally receiving it.
Adding a Substitute via an Invoice
Occasionally you will receive Substitutes from your Vendors through our Electronic Invoices. When this happens, you will map this Substitute Item to the existing Item you have in the system and choose not to update the PU, Price and SKU. This will keep the original Item's preferred data and will allow you to toggle on the Substitute as 'Receive Only'.
You can see in the example below we have the Milagro Silver Item that already exists inside of Craftable with an existing SKU, Price and PU of 1 x 1 each.
When we navigate to the Invoice received we can see that Premier/Breakthru Bev sent over a Milagro Silver, but with Purchase Unit 6 x 750mL bottles. With this Item being a Substitute, when we search an Item to map to we will select the 1 x 1 each Item.
