copper to inventoria stock level

Recommended Posts

I'm running some tests by turning off the server and turning it back on after a sale to see how the sync between copper and inventoria works and I realize that sometimes it updates and others it doesn't update. I don't know what makes it update and what not.

For being able to synchronize its necessary to have running Inventoria in the background otherwise it won't synchronize.


also you can try the following.


(1) Open Inventoria.

(2) Options -> Other -> Advanced Settings...

(3) Check "Allow Express Invoice, Express Accounts, or Copper to synchronize with Inventoria.

(4) Enter a number or password that is hard for others to guess and click OK. Sometimes I use 123456 for testing, but I'm sure you can be more creative than that.

Leave Inventoria running.


(5) Open Copper and log on.

(6) Options -> Sync Apps.

(7) Select "Synchronize this installation of Copper as a client of Inventoria or Copper.

(8) Enter your code again here.

(9) Enter the IP address. Enter if Copper and Inventoria are running on the same machine. (Otherwise, you may need to go back to the other machine and visit www.whatsmyip.org or use another approach to see the IP address of that machine.) Normally, just enter

(10) Enter the port number, which is 1097 for Inventoria.

(11) Click "Retrieve Locations". Then select a location from the drop-down. If you haven't changed the defaults in Inventoria, it will be "Main Warehouse".

(12) Click "Update now" to make sure it works.

(13) Click OK.

From now on, Copper should update the Inventoria stock counts whenever you sell an item.

I am having the same sort of problems with Inventoria and Express Invoices. I followed the instructions above and it indicated that it was successful.

Then a message popped up in the top right hand corner of my computer saying Synchronization Error - Quan


I have not been able to work out what the Quan means.
