Read the section on Inventory Maintenance to understand the importance of the fields required to add an Inventory item. Below is an example of how to add a new Inventory item. Chocolate Chip Cookie will be used as an example.
- Select New. Follow the descriptions under Inventory and Item Maintenance Fields to help you fill in all the relevant fields.
- Enter an Item ID. Remember the Item ID must be unique for each product. This could be COOKIE1 or CHOCCHPCOOK or CHOCCHIP. It does not matter to the program, it simply needs to make sense to you.

- When you are finished select Save.
- Select Yes.
- To edit an item, select Edit then change the information desired, such as the description.
To add a new item that is similar to an existing item use the Copy button to save time. You will see it leaves all the fields filled in but makes them editable.
Once you have added an Inventory item you are now able to create a button for that item. You will exit Inventory Maintenance and select Customize from the main screen. See section Customize for more information on creating buttons.
