Megaventory comes with some preloaded data to help you evaluate the application more easily.
The admin of the account can easily reset the database and start working with the company's actual data:

There are 2 options:

  • Full Reset: Resets all data. A full reset deletes orders, documents, clients, suppliers, contacts, products, stock, locations, bin locations, safety stocks, pricing rules, and BOMs. What is not deleted: Users, views (inventory views are deleted only), custom reports, currencies, and document templates. This will bring your account to its initial state. Select this reset option if you wish to start building your data from scratch.

  • Partial Reset: Resets only inventory. This deletes all orders and issued documents and so, zeroes the inventory. This option preserves all account data (products, suppliers, clients, etc.). Select this option to maintain your data and start using Megaventory with real orders & product movements.


if you have already entered your own data, it is a good idea to export all your data in spreadsheets for backup. You can later use these spreadsheet to import just your own data only.
