Adding your first item in Sortly is easy to do on both the web and mobile. If you have already done the bulk import but find yourself needing to add a few additional items to your inventory, the add button (+ icon) at the top right can save you time outside of using the CSV template.

Please see the video below to learn how to add items to your Sortly inventory:

The above image shows all the default fields added to the system that you can use to add details about the item. There are only two required fields here for Item Name and Quantity. Outside of these fields, you can choose to add additional information or leave the other fields blank. 

The fields that you will see by default here are the following:

  • Item Name
  • Quantity
  • Min Level
  • Alerts (Bell icon)
  • Price
  • Value
  • Tags
  • Notes
  • Create Custom Label

Once you have made all the changes that you would like within the item you can click on the Add button at the bottom of the page or the top right of the page.
