How do I remove duplicate Brand names from my list of products?

This article will show you how to tidy up your stock/inventory list when you have duplicated brand names being displayed.

Go to ManagerInventory/Stock, then click the Brand dropdown list and select one of the two duplicates that are appearing.

To fix this, products will need to be edited and moved to one Brand, so it is best to choose the Brand that has the least products.

Note: If you have multiple locations in Phorest, go to Manager > Chain Library > Product Library to do this instead, and make sure to check the Also Show Products Created in Branches checkbox.

In the example below, we have two L'Oreal brands appearing in our list.


To correct this, filter to one of the brands, preferably the one with the least amount of products in order to save time, then edit those products and change the Brand.

Repeat this step for each product in the list, then go back to your Manager screen and back into the Inventory/Stock screen again to refresh the list.

You should now only have one Brand listed.
