Working with Makes and Models

Setting Default Makes

The default make, and whether a vendor only supplies a single make, may be set for each vendor account (see Editing Vendors). If a default make is specified then it will be entered automatically when adding new inventory items or purchase order line items. If a vendor is set as only supplying a single make then the make field will not be editable on inventory items and purchase orders associated with that vendor.

Standardizing Consistency of Makes and Models

If users have entered various makes and models inconsistently, they can be standardized through a few simple steps. When opening the makes and models setup area, answer Yes to extract newly entered makes and models if this option has been enabled (see modul.e option “Prompt to extract newly entered Makes and Models” under Setup Module Options). Then browse through the list and correct any variances by editing each incorrect record and typing in what the make and model should have been, even if it is already in the list. Make sure that the Update existing Repair Order and Inventory records box is checked before saving. All repair order and inventory records will automatically be updated with the correct make and model so that your data is consistent.
