Stock Central Views

  • All: By selecting this view, all the products will be displayed.
  • In Stock: If the stock of the products is greater than one, they will be shown in Stock Central.
  • Out of Stock: If the stock of the products is less than one, they will be shown in Stock Central.
  • On Back Order: By selecting this view, if the product stock is Out of Stock, and it has Backorders allowed, it will be displayed.
  • Restock Status: The system uses this formula to display the products on Restock Status within Stock Central: The average sales per day for the last week * Days to reorder. We calculate the average sales by adding the sales of the product of the last week and dividing by 7.
Note that if ‘Unmanaged Product Counters’ is disabled, an additional view will be displayed in Stock Central: Unmanaged by WC. By clicking on this view, you will see the products that are not managed by Woocommerce.


if ‘Unmanaged Product Counters’ is enabled, the ‘Unmanaged by WC’ view will disappear, but every view will have 2 numbers inside the parenthesis: the left one indicates Managed by WC stock and the right one Unmanaged WC stock.
