This topic covers the use of the Inventory Review/Adj form.


Use this form to adjust the quantity on hand (how many you have in stock) and\or move items from one location to another.

Typically, this form is used after an inventory is taken and the actual number of items in stock don’t match what Total Office Manager is showing. This form allows for easy “batch” changes to inventory quantities and locations.

Form Access

  • From the main menu click Company > Inventory Adjustment > Inventory Review/Adj
