Sage 50 Inventory Setup – STEP 3 – Create the Custom Fields

AccuPOS utilizes custom fields for items inside Sage 50. 

These custom fields have a wide variety of uses ranging from Remote Printing to applying sales discounts across a specific item type. 

Before the custom fields can be used, they need to be created inside Sage 50. To set up the custom fields:

  1. Go to Maintain  Default Information  Inventory Items. The Inventory Item Defaults window appears.

Now that the custom fields have been set up with one item, they are enabled for the entire inventory list.
