How to Use the Instant Inventory Count Feature
Updated: Mar 16
Ever wondered how many items you have in your garage? Or how many items you have in a particular box? We believe Everspruce is the best home inventory app for iOS, and one of the many reasons why is the instant inventory count feature - which allows you to instantly see how many items (or boxes or areas) are in a particular location. In this short blog post, we're going to dive into the power of the instant inventory count feature and see how it can help you keep better track of your home belongings.
What are instant inventory counts?
To understand instant inventory counts, you need to understand how Everspruce organizes your home inventory. Everspruce uses a nested doll structure for its home inventory entries. That means entries are parents to other children entries. In other words, entries contain other entries. This is a simple concept but it can yield powerful results once you understand it.
With the above in mind, instant inventory counts are simply adding up all the entries that are contained within a specific area, box, or item and displaying them in a purple horizontal row at the bottom of the entry image. Within the purple row there are three icons:
Area icon (a garage): The number to the right of the area icon is the number of areas within this entry. In the example image above, there are no additional areas in this "Garage" entry.
Box icon (coincidentally - a box): The number to the right of the box icon is the number of box within this entry. In the example image above, there are 26 boxes located in this "Garage" entry.
Item icon (a paperclip): The number to the right of the item icon is the number of items within this entry. In the example image above, there are 104 items located in this "Garage" entry.
How do you access instant inventory counts?
Accessing instant inventory counts is incredibly easy, as each area and box entry has their inventory count automatically calculated by Everspruce. With that in mind, users just need to look at the purple horizontal row at the bottom of any area or box image.
What are the benefits of instant inventory counts?
Instant inventory counts allow you to effortlessly and accurately assess how many areas, boxes, and items are within a specific entry. This prevents needlessly counting individual entries to figure out item counts and is yet another way that Everspruce makes creating a home inventory effortless.
In conclusion, the instant inventory count feature makes counting your inventory effortless and accurate, and is another example of how Everspruce makes home inventory better. So, what are you waiting for? Download the app today and start your home inventory today!
