How to add and update Bulk inventory?

What is bulk inventory?

Sometimes your rental inventory for a specific product can have a very large number of items (eg. hundreds or thousands). In such case using the inventory module in Bulk mode for managing inventory is needed. This will allow you to quickly add or remove items in bulk.

Note: If you are planning to track inventory individually (eg. use scanning devices to identify objects one by one, or use service alerts for individual items) then it is recommended to use the individual tracking more or keeping bulk mode off, which is the also default mode. See separate article on this topic
