    You can click "items not counted" button when inside the count and there is a filter for category on that page.

    I have a slightly different question about counts.  We need to do our total inventory in stages, too. The way I understand it, if we think we have an entire category counted, and later come across a "stray" and count it, it would replace whatever value had previously been counted.  Is there any way to have that item added to the previous count rather than replace the previous count, e.g., "lock" each count in a way that further entries are added rather than overwrite?

    I don't imagine this would happen often, but we have various items scattered all through the store..  I can just imagine someone scanning their way through a section and not even consider that something could be from a previously counted category.

    One other thing - it would be nice to be able to add a Name or Description to each count.

    I am running into a similar issue with inventory counts. I have too many items to count at one time, so I want to break it up into several parts. I understand how I can use the Category filter in the uncounted items list, but I would rather break up my inventory by manufacturer rather than category. So I would like to have a filter for manufacturer rather than category. Is it possible to add that?

    I'm also running into a problem with the category filter. When I select a category from the filter pulldown, then advance to the next page in the list, it removes the category filter when it displays the new page. As a result, it shows all the items again rather than filtering by the category that I had selected. I'm not sure if this is a tiny bug in the code or if it's specific to my installation, but it makes the category filter nonfunctional.

    An even better solution for me would be to allow me to specify which items I want to include in the inventory count (a category, a manufacturer, a supplier, or even an item number wildcard) when I start it. That way I can do my inventory count in manageable pieces. The way it is set up now, the machine churns for several minutes when I try to create a new inventory count, because it has to go through all 10,000 items.

    Thanks for your help!

    We will fix the pagination and add more filters as you suggested
