How do i adjust inventory through Inventory Adjustment?


Inventory adjustments are increases, decreases, and revaluations made in inventory to account for theft, loss, breakages, and errors in the amount or number of items received.

RepairDesk doesn’t let you enter a transaction if your inventory item's quantity or value falls below zero. You may need to make an adjustment in this situation. Additionally, you may need to adjust inventory following an inventory count.

Inventory adjustments only apply to track inventory items.

  • If you adjust an inventory item's quantity, the total value will be automatically adjusted.
  • If you need to decrease an inventory item's quantity and its value, do the 'decrease quantity' adjustment first, then the revaluation adjustment.
  • If you want to change something else about the tracked inventory item, for example, its description or price, edit the item instead.

How it works

If you want to add inventory or decrease inventory you need to follow these simple steps:

GOTO=> Home/Manage Inventory/Product

1.   If you want to add the quantity or decrease the quantity you need to press action button and click inventory adjustment.

Or just click on hand or cost field it will take you to adjustment window because you cannot enter cost and quantity manually.


2.  Clicking on item adjustment a new window will appear, there you will have to select which adjustment you want to do.

There are three types of adjustment entries that you can make in Repair Desk:

Increase quantity Decrease quantity Revaluation


Select increase quantity, by default current date, will be displayed, enter the increase in quantity in respective column add the price of the item.

Notes are mandatory, without notes data will not be saved.

Click review adjustment after adding all the data. Here you can check that either the data you have entered is right or wrong if data is correct the press post adjustment.


 Whenever any item is lost or breakdown and you need to update inventory accordingly then you can use negative adjustment.

While decreasing the quantity you don’t want to add cost as it will get the existing cost. The decrease in quantity will be done as per valuation method selected. E.g. if LIFO is selected then and we perform negative adjustment it will decrease as per LIFO method. Last added item will be decreased.

Notes are mandatory, without notes data will not be saved.

Click on review adjustment to view the adjustment done, you can either post adjustment or just go back to previous window.


In some case you need to change the cost price of all the items, you will use revaluation. Here you can only add cost for the items and it will apply to all the stock of that particular item.

Despite the fact which valuation method you are using it will revalue all the quantity on particular item.

Click on review adjustment, if it’s correct to proceed to post adjustment or go back.


Note: In case of inventory count when user will increase or decrease quantity as per count, its adjustment entry will be posted in the system. Follow the knowledge base article from the user voice for inventory count.
