1. Adjust the settings of the source warehouse on the User Defined Fields of the Warehouses-Setup screen.

If there is no label on the logistic unit, tap the No label on the logistic unit button.

Scan the GS1 barcode(s)

5. Identify identical logistic units

If there is no SSCC barcode among the scanned barcodes, or there is no label on the logistic unit, the system asks if there are identical logistic units.

If there are identical logistic units, tap button Identical logistic units button.

The system asks the quantity of the identical logistic units. Enter the number of the logistic units. The number of the logistic units is not limited. Tap the right arrow key to proceed.

Identify identical logistic units

6. Identify product

Scan the barcode or tap the Select a product button.

Select the product from the list.

Identify product

7. Enter batch data

If the batch number was not scanned previously, select it from the list. At this step, new batch numbers cannot be added to the system. Only batches available in the source warehouse can be selected.

Based on the item settings, additional data can be entered to the batch, e.g. Best Before Date, second batch number, batch attributes, etc.

Enter batch data

8. Enter quantity

Enter the item quantity or scan the serial numbers. The entered quantity cannot exceed the open quantity defined in the inventory transfer request.

When an item has a serial number, the system automatically offers the scanning option.

Based on the settings of the catch weight function, the system might ask for entering the weight as well.

After entering the quantity, the system prints the item label(s) depending on the item settings.

Enter quantity

9. Add more products from the logistic unit

After entering the quantity, the system asks whether there are other products on the logistic unit that are not scanned.

If there are other products on the logistic unit, tap Yes. Go back to the Identify product step to identify the products on the logistic unit.

Tap the Receive items button to finish the process. When you tap the Receive items button, the system books the inventory transfer.

Add product

If there is no other product on the logistic unit, tap No and the system registers the item. The data of the registered items is stored in ASN tables.

As the data of the registered items is stored in the system, it is possible to continue the flow after it was stopped without booking the items.

If there was no SSCC barcode among the scanned barcodes, or there was no label on the logistic unit, the system generates an SSCC barcode. The system also triggers the Warehouse: a new LU has been created (700) print event and prints the logistic label. The default report for this print event is the DefaultLogisticsLabel.rpt.

If the Move all items in 1 stock transfer? option is disabled on the Receive from WHS controller, the Inventory Transfer document is created and the system returns to the Select an inventory transfer request screen.

If the option is enabled, the system goes back to the Scan the GS1 barcode screen. On this screen an additional Receive items button is displayed. The Inventory Transfer document is created after you tap the Receive items button.

Scan barcode

10. Finish process

To continue the flow on a next logistic unit go back to the Scan the GS1 barcode(s) step. Tap the Receive items button to finish the process.

When you tap the Receive items button, the system books the inventory transfer. The system also triggers the Warehouse: move has been added (701) print event and prints the delivery document.

After booking the items, the system goes back to the Select an order screen, and the flow can be continued with another inventory transfer request.

Put away generation

Based on the Put away for receive from warehouse generator setting, the system checks if put away move order needs to be generated.

  • Do not generate: The system does not generate put away move orders when finishing the Receive from WHS Flow.
  • Generate: The system generates put away move orders when finishing the Receive from WHS Flow. The generated logistic unit can be selected during the Put Away Flow.
  • Generate full pallet: The system generates put away move orders when finishing the Receive from WHS Flow. The generated logistic unit is a full pallet and it can be selected during the Put Away Flow.

11. Continue the flow

When quitting after the item registration, the system offers the option to book receipt. Despite not booking the receipt, the flow can be continued after the registration step, because the system stores the data of the registered items in ASN tables.

Registered items

If there are registered items in the system that were not booked, after the Select an inventory transfer request step the system asks whether you want to remove the registered items.

When you tap the Remove registered items button, the system removes the registered items and the flow continues with the Scan the GS1 barcode(s) step. When tapping the right arrow key, the flow proceeds with the registered items.
