While Fishbowl Inventory is not a custom program, there are many settings you can change to make it more “custom” to your business and the processes within your company. Once all of your information has been uploaded into your Fishbowl Inventory database, it might be wise for you to peruse the Module Options that are found throughout the software. Some of them can mean the difference between spending hours of extra work versus having those things automated for you.
Where are the Module Options?
As you access each module, you will be able to open the Module Options for that module. To find them, open the “Tools” menu, and then click “Module Options”. Remember that when you move to a different module in Fishbowl Inventory, the options will change to match the module that is currently open.
A large concentration of the Module Options can be found in the Accounting Module, the Sales Order Module, and the Picking Module. While these are important, don’t forget that almost all of the modules in Fishbowl Inventory have at least one Module Option.
We recommend that you go through each module to figure out which options work best for you.
Don’t forget the Program Options
Another little-known fact is that Fishbowl Inventory also has some Program Options. These can be accessed from any module in Fishbowl by clicking the “Tools” menu, and selecting “Program Options”. While the Program Options are mostly cosmetic, there is a handy Email tab where you can enter your email information that will then be used whenever you send an email. This includes the ability to create custom personalized emails for Sales Order confirmations, Purchase Orders, and Shipping confirmations.
