If you have the Full Traceability Add-on, you'll notice that Item cards included the option to switch on/off serial number tracking at the item level (per product).

Note: Serial number tracking can only be enabled for finished products

Since serial number tracking can be set at the item level, this also affects all variants of the item. Enabling/disabling serial number tracking for an item will only affect that item.

Manually enabling product serial number tracking

  1. Navigate to the Items screen and select a product from the list.

  2. Enable Serial numbers.

    NOTE: Serial number tracking in Katana is available on Standard and higher plans (see more about subscription packages). If you're on the Starter plan, you will be asked to confirm the change to a plan. You can choose a monthly or annual plan with a free 14-day trial.

  3. If you're manufacturing serial number traced products, you can automatically generate serial numbers based on a specified format.

    1. {ORDER_NO} shows the MO identifier

    2. {SEQ_START} begins a sequence of numbers

    3. You can add any combination of numbers and letters

    Uncheck Automatically generates MO serial numbers to turn off the automatic generation of serial numbers.

  4. Serial tracking has been enabled for all variants of the item.
