Move inventory items from one Group to another

Maybe you accidentally added items to the wrong Group or you're moving to a new lab and want to transfer the inventory information with you. It's easy for you to move items from one Quartzy Group to another!  

1. Export the inventory you want to transfer from the old Group.

2. Delete all of the data from the 'Serial Number' columns on each worksheet and save the file.

Important: Delete the Owner column if you want to be the owner for each item. If not, make sure the Owner is a member of your new Group or the upload will not work.

3. Click on the Import button on the left sidebar of the Inventory for the new Group and follow the instructions to upload the file.

If you want all items added to the new Group in exactly the same way as the old Group, upload that entire spreadsheet. Otherwise, edit any information, add or change any Types or Custom Fields, and then upload the file.
