What does Set Inventory mean?
Before January 2018
Set Inventory allows Admin to track stock level on Items, Admins should write True in this column if they are looking to track stock level and False if they are not.
Admins can manually update the stock level within Work from the Item record. Once that Item is used on a Job, Work will deduct the Quantity from the stock level.
Note: This is not a reliable or recommended solution for Stock Management. Read more here.

After January 2018
Users should write False in this column on the template file.
