Using PAR levels
To help you make great purchase decisions, PAR levels show when you create a purchase order. You will find the PAR levels under the field STOCK/PAR.
The first number is the stock on hand and the second number is the PAR level. If you see a dash in place of the PAR level, it means the level isn’t set yet.
