When editing inventory record it is only possible to adjust the quantity to indicate a different level of stock. Reserved quantities can only be manipulated automatically by YC order state machine.

Availability configuration encompasses type and date range. The date range allows to define when the product starts being available (i.e. Available from) and when it is taken off the sales (i.e. Available to). These dates define the period when product is visible on the storefront. Availability type defines how inventory is handled for this products. The following types are available in YC:
|Availability type||Date range||Behaviour|
|Standard||available from < now < available to|
Product must have enough items in stock for the order to be placed.
|Always||available from < now < available to||Stock is completely ignored. This type is used for digital products or when inventory management is not important (i.e. there is always more than enough)|
|Showroom||available from < now < available to||Cannot be purchased. These products are for customers to have a look and read about. Showroom items are usually prototypes, or could be items that will be soon available (e.g. fashion collection for next season). This type of product is more for raising interest and advertisement purposes|
|Back order||available from < now < available to|
Products that can be purchased even if there is not enough items in stock. The assumption is that the shop can re-stock and fulfil the order
|now < available to|
Products that have not yet been released. The assumption is that the shop can re-stock and fulfil the orders after product release date.
