Admin Stock Alert is a simple stock management tool that notifies the administrator (or multiple people) by email, when products reach low stock levels. As an admin, you may want to know when your "red" tshirts are out of stock, or when there are only 5 items of your "size L" hats in stock to anticipate the shortage. Admin Stock Alerts will send a daily or weekly report with the information you have selected in the alert settings.
It is easy to use, as it works like the Promotion tool available in Magento. You just need to set your alert in a few steps:

  • First start by setting the alert conditions:  
    • which products (based on product attributes) : color, brand etc...
    • which level of stocks, (based on inventory attributes) : X remaining items, "is out of stock"…
  • Then define who will receive the alert, and how often (once a day or once a week when the condition matches). 

    Create as many alerts as you need :

Create alerts in other languages for multilingual stores by adding new email templates.
Create different alerts for different store views
Create different alerts per warehouse etc...

Admin Stock Alert is a simple and powerful tool, easy to set up for any admin and convenient even for multi-languages and multi-warehouse stores as well. This tool can help to involve different collaborators in the stock management process as you can notify as much recipient as you need.

  • Conditional alerts by email
  • Infinite combinations of alerts thanks to products and inventory attributes
  • One or several recipient(s)
  • Multi-store friendly
  • Customisable email (by adding other templates, one for each language for instance)
  • Customisable report (by displaying more information in the default table)


Basically the user can determine any combination of conditions to set the alert rule.

For instance, you can be notified when :

  • there are 5 blue t-shirts left in stock

  • some articles of a certain brand are out of stock

  • etc…

Possibilities are infinite as they are based on all the product attributes available in Magento, it easily adapts to every needs of e-Merchants and stock management collaborators in general.


Frequency of alerts

If the condition is verified, you will receive an alert email with a report. The frequency of this alert can be set every day, every week, or both. You can choose which day, and at what time. The report contains some information by default that you can complete with other product and stock data if you need to.

Alerts and Store views

The extension is also really convenient for multi-languages stores, as you can select to which Store View does the alert applies. As your needs in terms of alerts can differ according to which country your stock is, it can be useful to set different alerts per store views.


Email customisation

You can select the email sender directly from the system configuration section. The email can be sent to one or several recipients.
Really flexible, you can adapt the default email template to create other ones, in other languages for instance.
The default report contains the following information : product name, SKU,  quantity, if the product is in stock. These attributes by default can be completed by any other attributes of your choice.
