Part Notification Events

Low Stock Notification

If the minimum stock threshold is set for a Part, then a "low stock" notification can be generated when the stock level for that part falls below the configured level.

Any users who are subscribed to notifications for the part in question will receive a low stock notification via email.

Build Order Notification

When a new Build Order is created, the InvenTree software checks to see if any of the parts required to complete the order are low on stock.

If there are any parts with low stock, a notification is generated for any users subscribed to notifications for the part being built.

Subscribing to Notifications

Users can "subscribe" to either a Part or Part Category, to receive notifications.

Part

When subscribed to a Part, a user will receive notifications when events occur which pertain to:

  • That particular part
  • Any parts which are variants of that part

If a user is subscribed to a particular part, it will be indicated as shown below:

If the user is not subscribed, the subscription icon is greyed out, as shown here:

  • That particular category
  • Any sub-categories at lower levels
