Continuing with the Advanced Stock Management course you are now about to discover the details and usage of the Stock Coverage report. Like our previous article on Instant Stock Status, it is a simple data report. The Stock Coverage report is used to determine if your existing stock will cover a specific time period. It helps determine the number of days your stock will last based on current demand. Below is an explanation of the data on the report as well as instructions on accessing the report in PrestaShop 1.5.
Viewing and understanding the Stock Coverage report in PrestaShop 1.5
- Log into your PrestaShop 1.5 dashboard.
- Using the top menu bar, hover over the Stock tab and click on the Stock Coverage option from the menu.

If a product has combinations, you will need to select the button on the right side of the row to display the data for each combination.
