We spent most of yesterday photographing about 500 items for listing. I would like to try to move from using Listings as inventory to actually using GarageSale’s inventory system, so I can track various things in future. I won’t repeat all the stuff here, but it really shouldn’t be in the Listing records, it should be in the Inventory record and get copied to the Listings that I launch from those.
Anyway I have a folder full of photos, one or two each for now, and now I need to make a new Inventory record for each one.
When I was using Listings I could just hit cmd-N a few dozen times, and drag images into those new records. But I find there is no keystroke for “New Inventory Item”.
Please could be have a relatively simple way of adding them manually? In addition to the other stuff, of course. I suppose I can work around this by making one empty one with the manual and then duplicating it exponentially, but that produces random SKU values even when the duplicated inventory record has no SKU.
Which feels like a bug.
Just a keystroke or drag-and-drop or something that will let me make 100-1000 new inventory items, with no title or SKU set, so that (when they are scriptable) I can actually set those values as needed. If I can at least build a sketch of a listing as an inventory item, with my own non-eBay title and a non-eBay picture so I know what it is when I actually edit it for launch, it will help immensely.
I am never going to make one Inventory item and then make a Listing from that before doing the next. I will always be wanting to work with bulk collections of items, in various sized batches, in both tables.
