Important Note: PartsLedger is now PartsManager. PartsManager retains all of the parts purchasing and warehouse management automation benefits of its predecessor. To read more about this exciting change, click here.


For almost every bulk stock adjustment, you want to perform a Stock Count Upload for each individual Warehouse. See How to Import Stock Counts (Cycle Counts) into PartsManager, formerly known as PartsLedger.

This article will walk you through how to import your Stock Adjustments across all Warehouses into PartsManager. This is typically used when you have new warehouses that you have to create stock for or you are attempting to zero out your stock for multiple warehouses at once.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This upload tool is very powerful and if not used correctly can cause some very hard to reverse changes. ServiceTrade will not support correcting mistakes made when using this tool.

This bulk import will function similarly to Performing Stock Adjustments. We highly recommend you read this article before attempting to perform Stock Adjustments in bulk.

Importing in PartsManager requires an Account Admin user role.
