Deleting materials helps to maintain a streamlined and accurate inventory by removing items that are no longer needed. This allows you to eliminate unnecessary materials from their records, ensuring that inventory data remains current and manageable.
You can delete materials individually or in bulk.

To delete materials individually

  1. Navigate to the Items screen and find your material in the Materials table. Click on the material to open a material card.

Whether deleting individually or in bulk, Katana will notify you if a material is currently used on any open orders or product recipes. You can still delete materials if they are actively used. On orders, a deleted item will be displayed with a strikethrough style.
