! Please note: Only category Owners, Managers and Editors can add an item to a category.


There are two ways to add items to a category - manually or by importing an Excel sheet


Adding items manually: 

  1. Navigate to Manage > Material Database
    • Open the category you'd like to edit 
  2. Click on Add item 
  3. Fill in the cells with the attributes describing the item. An asterisk next to the attribute's name means that the attribute is mandatory.
  4. Click Save to confirm.


Adding items from Excel file:


You can import your existing inventory to the MDB by uploading an Excel file. In order to perform a smooth import, you have to prepare your Excel sheet beforehand. After the file is uploaded to MDB you can match the attributes of your items to attributes in an MDB category.
