3. Sales Order
Sales orders are used for three main purposes in Fishbowl: Sales, returns, and drop shipping. You’ll be using sales orders on a daily basis, so it makes sense that they would show up in the top 3 on this list.

It’s not an exaggeration to say that Fishbowl’s Part module is at the heart of everything Fishbowl does. Everything in your inventory is considered a “part,” so if you plan on storing, manufacturing, or consuming something, you better make sure it’s added as a part through this module.
The Inventory module lets users add, scrap, move, and modify parts in your inventory. It also lets you perform cycle counts, track inventory, and check part quantities by location. This comprehensive article goes through the steps to do all of these things.
The Articles page is different than everything else on this list because it’s full of links to articles without really being an article itself. It helps you find information on getting started with Fishbowl’s software, navigating the many module groups that make up Fishbowl’s software, and find support and other resources.
