You can watch the YouTube video below if you don't want to read the whole page. Let's start.
This is the main page of the inventory management system. It gives you a quick overview of the stock levels, incoming orders, and outbound shipments.
- To get today's date on this page, simply type =TODAY() in the formula bar on the left top side of the page. You can customize the appearance of the cell by merging cells and using formatting tools. To view the formula and formatting options, click on the cell.
- The "INVENTORY TOTAL VALUE" scorecard chart shows the sum of data from the "INVENTORY TOTAL VALUE" column in the table located on the Inventory page.
- The "TOTAL COST OF INBOUND" scorecard chart shows the sum of data from the "TOTAL COST OF INBOUND" column in the table located on the Inbound page.
- The "TOTAL COST OF OUTBOUND" scorecard chart shows the sum of data from the "TOTAL COST OF OUTBOUND" column in the table located on the Outbound page.
- The Combo chart displays the distribution of Stock Costs Per Product.
- In the context of "Stock Costs Per Product," the Combo chart would display the distribution of costs for different products, presenting the relationship between stock levels and corresponding costs. This visualization can help identify patterns, trends, and disparities in stock costs across various products, facilitating decision-making and strategic planning related to inventory management and financial analysis.
This sheet shows the current inventory levels for each item in the warehouse. It also allows you to add new items and adjust the number of existing items.
- REORDER (auto-fill): This column is automatically populated using the formula "=IFS(L4<J4, "OK", L4>J4, "REORDER"). The formula compares the value in column L (Reorder Level) with the value in column J (Stock Quantity) for each row. If the stock quantity is less than the reorder level, it displays "REORDER," indicating the need to replenish inventory. If the stock quantity is greater than or equal to the reorder level, it displays "OK," indicating that the inventory is sufficient.
- ITEM: The ITEM column represents the name of each inventory item. It helps identify and categorize different products or items within the inventory.
- CATEGORY: The CATEGORY column indicates the category or classification to which each inventory item belongs. It helps organize and group similar items together for easier management and analysis.

- COST PER ITEM: The COST PER ITEM column represents the unit cost or price of each inventory item. It indicates the amount paid for acquiring each unit of the item.
- STOCK QUANTITY (auto-fill): This column is automatically filled using the formula "=H3-I3". The formula subtracts the value in column I (Total Outbound comes from Quantity column of Outbound Page ) from the value in column H (Total Inbound comes from Quantity column of Inbound Page) for each row. It calculates the remaining stock quantity after deducting sold quantities from the total inventory quantity.
- INVENTORY TOTAL VALUE: This column is automatically populated using the formula "=J3*G3". The formula multiplies the value in column J (Stock Quantity) by the value in column G (Cost Per Item) for each row. It calculates the total value of the inventory for each item by multiplying the stock quantity with the cost per item.
- REORDER LEVEL: The REORDER LEVEL column specifies the minimum stock level at which a reorder should be triggered for each item. It helps maintain adequate inventory levels to avoid stockouts or disruptions in the supply chain.
- LEAD TIME (DAY): The LEAD TIME column represents the number of days required to fulfill an inventory reorders once it has been placed. It helps in planning and managing the timing of reorders to ensure a smooth supply chain process.
- MIN. REORDER QUANTITY: This column indicates the minimum quantity that should be reordered for each item. It helps determine the minimum quantity required to maintain optimal inventory levels and reduce the risk of stockouts.
- SALES STATUS: The SALES STATUS column provides information about the status of sales for each item. It helps track whether an item is available for sale or if it has been sold, providing insights into the current availability and sales performance.
Colored cells have conditional formatting, which makes it easy for you to focus on the data.
After hovering over the colored column and right-clicking, a list will appear. When you hover over the 'view more cell actions' option in that list, you can access a submenu where you can select 'conditional formatting'.
Alternatively, you can click on the Conditional Formatting option from the Format tab.
By clicking on this option, you can make necessary adjustments (Add rule, edit rule, delete rule) or explore the features of conditional formatting.
For the "REORDER (auto-fill)" column values, It appears that there is a conditional formatting rule that sets the background color of a cell to orange if the value in column B, is a text containing "REORDER".
For the "SALES STATUS" column values, It appears that there is a conditional formatting rule that sets the background color of a cell to orange if the value in column O, is a text containing "Discount".

Navigate to the table you want to connect your data to and select the cells you want to connect.
Choose data validation from the data tab.
Select "add a rule" from the window that pops up.
The applied field automatically appears as the field we selected. Under "criteria", select "from a range" from the dropdown menu. Hover over the box and click "Select data range".
Go to the data page and select your source data.
The window that pops up will be automatically filled based on the cells you selected. Then click OK.
Advanced options allow you to make adjustments. I chose to display it as an arrow in the Display Style because I wanted it to look like the others.
After making the necessary adjustments, click Done. It's ready now.
