Add Material Donations Into Inventory

Return To The Knowledge Base

Argenta has three separate inventory buckets. One is product inventory for products your organization sells.  Two is a lending library for those items you lend to your constituents. And the third is material donation inventory where you keep track of the material items that have been donated by your constituents.
