- In the Layers tab of the left-side navigation menu, click on the Inventory of the Manage Inventory.
- In the 3D view, click on a recognized inventory item.
The Inventory viewer opens on the right. The images shown belong to the Orbit Underneath sub-missions of Pix4Dscan from which the inventory was reconstructed and identified. If the dataset was not acquired with Pix4Dscan, the images shown are generically only those that have a positive gimbal pitch angle.
Information about recognized inventory is shown on the Inventory Card.
You can manually add the inventories that are not automatically detected by the AI recognition. To add the inventory,
- Click on icon on the top right of the Inventory list.
- Then, click on the 3D point to represent the new inventory. A new inventory item box will open.

The Inventory Card contains the information that is computed via the Automatic inventories recognition algorithm and some additional end-user editable fields. The name of an inventory item can be changed by clicking on it from the Inventory Card. In particular, it contains:

A detailed explanation of the AI recognized inventory details is available at: AI recognition of Inventories.

- Add external link: the user can click on icon and attach as many as needed links to an inventory item. While adding them, the URL field is mandatory, and the description is optional. The external links are included within its annotation in the JSON report and the PDF report. In the PDF, the user can click on it, and a browser will display the URL.
The content of the inventory details is automatically saved when added to the editable fields.
An image per inventory can be added to the report as the best-fit image for a specific inventory, in the sense that the best-fit image is the most representative and contains the highest amount of information for inventory inspection purposes.

- In the Inventory viewer, pick the image considered as the best fit from the proposed ones.
- Change the zoom level of the image.
- Click on Added to report .
The image miniature in the carousel now shows the Added to report icon. The selected image will be added to the reports with the zoom level.
