The Stock management tab is used to manage your consumable items. In this tab, you can edit existing default stock items so that they match what you use or you may add additional stock items using the "Add Stock Items" at the bottom of the page. You use stock items in your job cards, for example, if you were to do a job that includes using sugar syrup, then you could have a stock item that is your choice of sugar, how many days it will last, and how much it costs per litre. This gives you the ability to see not only how many litres of sugar you are using per site, but also what that costs.
