Reveal is an AJAX add-on module for
Inventory Manager 4. It
is specifically designed for removing out of stock items when tracking attribute combinations. For
example, as Miva Merchant and Inventory Manager are currently designed, if you are
tracking two or more attributes, e.g. size (small, large) and color (red, green) – there is no
way to mark individual attribute options as being out of stock.
When installed and configured in your store, Reveal makes an AJAX request to
get the latest inventory data from Inventory Manager's databases. When your page loads,
items are removed from your drop down lists. As a customer selects attribute options in
your store, additional AJAX requests are made to update the inventory counts
appropriately. So if a customer has selected "red" and only "large" is in stock, "small"
(the out of stock option) will be removed from the drop down list. Reveal supports using an arbitrary
number of attributes.
Currently, Reveal is only supported on product (PROD) pages, though subsequent releases
will include support for any page that can display product attributes.
Finally, since Miva Merchant’s default inventory tracking system does not
support attribute tracking, this module is not compatible with it (nor would it make sense
for it to be compatible with it).
