01. Intro to Advanced Features
In the following articles we will be talking about some of the advanced features of RW Elephant that will allow you to move beyond Item and Order creation and work with more nuanced situations and customization of your account. Dive in and level up your skills to becoming an RW Elephant Pro.
Online Wishlist Creation
With this feature turned on your clients can browse your online inventory and add items to a wishlist. This works similar to a cart on an E-commerce site.
Our WordPress plugin allows you to pair items that work well together within your Online Gallery. By using “Related Items,” you can guide clients through your Online Gallery as if you were guiding them through your warehouse.

Since specific changes can drastically alter an Order, we have created a few safeguards to make sure Existing Orders do not update automatically.

If you rent your inventory for prolonged periods of time and adjust your prices based on the length of the rental then you'll want to utilize Rental Rate Multipliers.
Alternative Off-the-Shelf & Restock Times
Alternative Times allow you to add additional Off-the-Shelf & Restock Times for individual Items on an Order by Order basis.
You may have items in your RW Inventory that are in fact no longer in your collection. In these instances you may want to Archive your items.
Order Archiving will help your staff save time wading through Completed Orders and also will speed up the performance of your RW Account, especially if you have 100+ Orders.
The Subrental tick box allows you to distinguish which Items belong to you and which Items you Subrent from an outside source.
