Planning how you track materials use is important, and must be done before starting the process in Envio. Setting up materials is similar to setting up products in Envio because you must determine the elements you want to assign to each Material. Some important questions to consider:
- What types of packing materials do you use?
- How closely do you want to track materials use?
- Do you want to track each material component (box lid, tray, etc.), or each full package (box, bag, etc.)?
- Are you interested in tracking things like twist ties, tape, stickers, etc?
List out each product package you currently use, to the level of detail you wish to track. Consult support to discuss options and review the steps in the process.
