Using the PaladinNsight™ dashboard, clients can set up clearance items. PaladinNsight™ is located in Paladin’s Inventory module on the Inventory tab. If you are a manager or other high-level employee, it will automatically appear on your PaladinNsight™ dashboard.

This article provides instruction and information on the following:

Paladin Configuration: Setting up Clearance

  1. In Paladin, on the top menu, select File > Setup.
  2. Select the Dept tab.
  3. In the Departments pane, under the list of departments, click New.
  4. In the Name box, enter Clearance.
  5. In the Department label number box, assign a number (it must be a new number).
  6. Click Save, then click Close.

  1. Uncheck (see note below) Set System Class for Clearance items.


Figure 3: Uncheck Set System Class for Clearance items option

Note: By default, Set System Class for Clearance items is checked, and Class 3 will be assigned. If the client is using Class 3 and does not want it overwritten, uncheck Set System Class for Clearance items. Paladin will then create a new class for clearance.

  1. Determine percentages and amount of days before percentage levels (see note below).

Note: By default, Paladin sets the initial clearance percent at fifty (50%) percent, then after the default of 28 days, the clearance percent goes to seventy five (75%) percent. If the item sells out, it is taken off of the clearance list, and clients can either restock the item or not; Paladin does not delete the item, that is up to the client. Clients can change the percentages and amount of days if desired.
