Argenta has three separate
inventory buckets. The first, is product inventory for the products your organization
sells. The second, is a lending library for those items you lend to your constituents. And the third, is material inventory
where you keep track of the material items that have been donated by your constituents. Your inventory items must be created first before you can itemize donations in the donation workspace.
