Good day, arielys.santana.

I appreciate you checking in with us. Let me help and guide you with adding items and printing labels.

QuickBooks Desktop Point of Sale (POS) makes it easier to manage and keep track of your inventory. To add items to inventory, please follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Inventory menu.
  2. Choose New Item.
  3. In the Add Inventory Item window, enter the item name.
  4. Enter the necessary information. 
  5. Make sure to check the Print Tags box in the Misc and Shipping section.
  6. Once you're done, click on Save.

I've attached some screenshots to help you with the process. 

Then, here's how to print tags/labels in POS:

  1. Select the item you wish to print tags/labels.
  2. From the Print or I Want To menu, select Print Tags.
  3. Depending on your program location, printer and print option preferences, you may have the following choices in the Print dialog displayed:

    • Change the printer to which you are sending the tags.
    • Choose to print tags for the selected item(s) or, on documents, all items.
    • Specify a quantity of each tag to print: the on-hand quantity, the document quantity, or any specified number of tags.
    • Pro multi-store Headquarters only: Choose the store for which you printing tags.
    • Calibrate your dedicated tag printer.

  4. Select Preview or Print.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
