Default Item screen

Use the Default Item screen to set up a default catalog item. ProContractor uses these default item values when you create a new item and when you import data from Excel or QuickBooks.

For example, suppose you entered a value of 5 in the Minimum Quantity field for your default item. When you get external data for an import, ProContractor inserts a value of 5 in the Minimum Quantity field of any catalog item that has a null value (that is, no value) for that field.

You can enter one default item in ProContractor.

Note: To open the Default Item screen, click Materials > Setup > Default Item in the All Tasks pane.
Note: The Default Item screen is a step in the Material Setup process. The next step can vary:
  • If you want to import item data from an Excel or TSV file, the Import Setup Data screen is the next step.
  • If you don't want to import item data (and will be entering items manually), the Catalog Item screen is the next step.
