Before you start entering parts and products into Fishbowl, it’s important to know which is which. That will save a lot of time and avoid a lot of confusion when you try to track all of the inventory you have in stock.

As you can see, parts are much more comprehensive than products. The video above goes into much more detail explaining the difference between parts and products, offering examples and applications.
