About Sortly's custom folder capabilities.

Sortly was designed to be flexible and customizable. Here’s how custom folders can work for your unique business.

Design, organize, and manage your inventory system with custom folders.

  • Folders are the first step in managing your inventory

    in Sortly. They are the building blocks for your inventory system.

  • Create folders and subfolders

    based on how you want to organize your inventory.

    in each folder and track custom details.

  • Easily update

    as inventory flows through your business.

  • Customize

    who from your team should have access to which folders.

What are some ways I could set up my custom folders?

  • By location.

    For instance, create folders for each warehouse location and subfolders for each shelf in your warehouse. Update inventory as it changes locations.

  • By employee.

    For instance, create a folder for each member of your team so you always know who has what.

  • By inventory type.

    For instance, create a folder for your business’s equipment, a separate folder for your business’s tools, and so on.

  • Any way you want.

    Sortly’s custom folder system is customizable for your unique business.
