Turn on Serialization for an Inventory Item

 Before you can perform this task

To start using serial numbers with an inventory item:

  1. Open the Serial Numbers tab in the inventory item's record. How?
      1. In the Home window, click Inventory & Services on the navigation pane.
      2. In the Tasks pane, right-click the Inventory & Services icon and select Modify Inventory & Services from the menu.
      3. Select an inventory or service item from the list and click OK.
      4. Click the Serial Numbers tab.
  2. Select This item uses serial numbers.
  3. (Optional) Enter the serial numbers for any items that you have on hand.
  4. Click Save and Close.

There are several reasons why you might not be able to turn on serialization for an item.


If you turn serialized inventory off for an item, all of the serial numbers that have been entered for that item will be removed.

Once an item with a serial number is used in a transaction, you cannot turn off serialized inventory for your company.
