Inventory > What Does a Red Exclamation Point Next to an Inventory Unit Mean?

Items and purchase units are imported into CNCentral during the initial onboarding process. When this occurs, districts who have purchased and are using the Inventory module will see all of their inventory units automatically populated in the Inventory Module. In the Inventory Module, if you have an inventory unit that has a red exclamation point on the far right hand side of the screen in line with a purchase unit, this indicates that there is an issue with the inventory or purchase unit. Hovering over the exclamation point will provide detail as to what the issue is so it is easy to correct.  

Below are some of the possible causes of a red exclamation point error notification:

Invalid Inventory Setup Value Flag - This refers to an issue in how an items inventory setup is configured. It could be related to any of the inventory setup values including servings per inventory unit, servings per purchase unit, calculated net weight, or inventory units per purchase unit values. 

Procurement Category Not Assigned Flag - This refers to an issue with an inventory units GPC code. For more information on procurement categories and GPC codes, click here

Price Not Setup for Default Vendor Flag - This indicates that a price is missing for an inventory unit.

Correct the inventory setup to that it accurately reflects the true inventory unit's values for servings per inventory unit, inventory units per purchase unit, servings per purchase unit, and/or nominal net weight (if the calculated net weight was the cause of the flag, updating the nominal net weight and servings per purchase unit will correct the calculated net weight which is an uneditable field)
