Stock count functionality in Linnworks is designed to perform periodic stock counts in order to adjust physical stock levels recorded on the system. The concept is as follows:
While you are counting stock (i.e. the stock count is unlocked) the system doesn’t actually update the levels. The stock levels will be updated once you have locked the stock count. Therefore it is not recommended to despatch orders while you are counting stock as it will result in discrepancy.
Only one stock count can be opened at any given time.

Locking Stock Count
Once you have counted all your inventory, you need to Lock the count in order to apply all the adjustments. Click Lock Count to perform this task.
Importing and Exporting stock count data
Stock count and inventory manifests can be exported. The types of the export are the same as Printing Manifests inventory. The export produces comma delimited file.
