Visit Boris website Update stock levels

Boris can be set to update stock levels from figures entered on the device. 

This is useful for when you have one or more lists of products that are being used, maybe sold or fitted.  Within the list of products or parts there will be name/code and a stock level which is held as an attribute with an attribute name of (for instance) StockLevel.  Within the template this list will be used in a table where the device user can select by product name/code and indicate quantity used.  This action will take this quantity and use it to update the stock level held on the server.
