This section is used to define the four stock range to be able to apply the product stock availability status, here the settings :

settings description
Empty Stock put the range qty to define what is an empty stock. We suggest you to start from the negative infinite symbol ( -X ) then put zero as maximum value
Critical Stock put the range to define the stock critical
Warning Stock do the same for warning
Optimum Stock Start from the desired value to define optimum stock, we suggest you to put positive infinite symbol for max ( X )

Note :

  • you can change the scope to apply different settings for the other store view / websites
  • for each range, you must put a integer value, separated by a semicolon.
  • You can use the character -X , X for infinite value.
  • Dont override the range, each qty value must be unique

Example :

Empty Stock : -x ; 0

Critical Stock : 1 ; 9

Warning Stock : 10 ; 19

Optimum Stock : 20 ; x

Here every qty value are unique to avoid range error ( -x ; 1  with  1 ; 9    is wrong).
