With the release of version 1.2.0, we have created a new blind receiving feature in your Android app. With this new feature, you can simply scan any inbound shipments by SKU and receive the shipment into inventory with dynamic license numbers.
Under the sidebar, there's a new menu called "Blind Receiving", if you click on that, you'll see that following screen:
A blind receiving requires a client name, reference number and at least one inventory item. There are 3 button on the bottom of the screen:
- Product: this will navigate you to a new screen where you can scan and add products. You should select a client first before navigate to the add product page.
- Delete: this will reset your current blind receiving session - all unreceived data will be deleted.
- Receive: this will save your receiving to the server after your "scan and add product" is done.
If you tap the product button, you will see this new screen:
In this screen, you can search your inventories under the client selected in the previous screen. If no client is selected, you will receive an error when searching.
Once an inventory is found, the app will prompt you to enter quantities, license number, lot, expire and if the entry is quarantined (lot and expire will only be shown if the inventory item requires lot)
Once above is entered, you should tap "Add This Item" button on the right bottom of the screen.
The create item button allows you to create an inventory item on the mobile app. You will need to enter SKU, name, UPC and if this item requires LOT control. (UPC and Lot control is optional). Please note that license plate numbers do NOT need to exist in main system. The server will create new license numbers dynamically.
Once all products are added to this blind receiving, you can navigate back to the main blind receiving page, and it will show the details of all products:
You can tap an item to modify or delete. Or if everything is correct, tap the "Receiving" button. This will save your existing data to the server and reset your blind receiving to new.
Your blind receiving will be saved as a vendor order in your server, with a shipment that are all received accordingly to your data. The shipment will be with status of "Ready". You still need to use the web UI to finish your 3PL billings and mark the shipment as "Finished".
Lastly, please do not forget to use the "Put Away" feature to move your newly received licenses to physical bin locations.
