Locations

Overview

Boxinvy locations help you categorize your inventory by your home, business, or vehicle. You can have photos, name, about, QR Code, Actual Cost, and replacement cost as fields.

If this Location was a home you would add the Kitchen as a parent box underneath to categorize. Once you have created a location you can start expanding the tree of boxes.

Example:

  • Home: Location
    • Kitchen: Parent Box
      • Kitchen Pantry: Sub Box
      • Kitchen Drawer: Sub Box
