This guide will walk you through how to set up Inventory Controls for the Free T-Shirt function built into CT Live. If you want to charge for T-Shirts or other merchandise, see our guide to Setting Up a Product Type Custom Question
Before using T-Shirt inventory controls, remember to carefully specify which sizes and types of t-shirt you will offer (Standard, Unisex, Men, Women, Child). The Inventory Controls will use the selected options for sizing.
Using the Inventory Controls
To utilize the inventory controls, enter the total number of t-shirts available for purchase in the Total Available T-Shirts field. Inventory Controls are useful for limiting the number of times T-Shirts can be selected on the registration form. Once the total number of T-Shirts available is reached, the option to receive a T-Shirt will be removed from all registration forms.
If offering more than one size, you can use the Apply Inventory Size feature to designate how many of each T-Shirt size are available. Once the limit has been reached for a certain size, that size will no longer be available on the registration forms. To specify inventory information for the T-Shirts, click the + Inventory Controls button and enter a value for each size offered.
When you are finished with your changes, click Save. As athletes make size selections, you can check on how many shirts have been claimed and how many remain as shown in the image above. You can also use the T-Shirt Sizes report to view T-Shirt totals.
