Is there a way to filter out archived products in inventory reports?

Hello, is there a way to filter out archived products when running inventory reports? Product status isn't a standard filter in the reporting options. I have the standard Shopify plan. Any help is appreciated! Any reporting tricks? Any easy apps?

Hi @Maryannb,

Keanna here from the Better Reports support team.

Were you able to find a solution for this? If not, I would recommend our app Better Reports for this!

Our inventory reports can be filtered based on product status to exclude any archived products.

In addition to building custom reports to meet your specific needs, you'll have access to 60+ built-in reports that cover many common use cases for merchants and our reports can be scheduled to send directly to your email or Google Drive at set frequencies.

I encourage you to install Better Reports and start your free 14-day trial and I'll be happy to set this up for you.

Let me know how you go and feel free to reach out if you have any further questions.

Hi,

 

Did you find an answer to this? I was very excited about inventory management using the Shopify system but it has been ruined by archived products cluttering my inventory list. Any tips would be appreciated!

If you still looking for a solution, then I suggest looking into our app.

It is possible to easily filter out unwanted product statuses with the filters:

I would love to see this as well. I need the SKU information, which you can't get from the straight products list, but I also need to just see "Active" items in an inventory report.

In our case, all stock with a quantity of 1 or above is active and all stock with a quantity of zero is inactive so we use the basic in-built filtering on Shopify to see all active stock.

Might not work in your case, but works fine for us.

hi

Have you found a solution to this? I was looking forward to utilizing the Shopify system to manage my inventory, however it has been destroyed by older products clogging my inventory list. Any advice would be much appreciated!

Hi, @alidonkaka 

 

This option is still available in our reporting tool:

You can exclude archived products from the Inventory On Hand report provided by the Advanced Reports application literally in two clicks.

 

We are on the Shopify Apps Store:

Please let me know if you will have any additional questions, I will be glad to tell you more about our product.

Hi Mary - I've found one way to manage this is by filtering inventory reports according to availability:

If the product is 'available' on your online store, for example, it won't be archived. 'Availability' in inventory seems to be a bit misleading—I've found it doesn't mean out of stock, so this should capture inventory that's out of stock, but still listed on your public-facing online store.

I think they may have just removed this as a filter option. It worked last month (Jan. 2023) when running reports, but now the Availability filter isn't an option anymore.

@SBWMSU 

Availability filter is still there it's just been "hidden" away out of sight. Click the search and filter button near the top right (or press F) and click add Filter.
