Modules:Mobile Inventory/User Guide
|Important Note: Mobile Inventory functionality is discontinued and unsupported. All supported Warehouse functionality is included now in Advanced Warehouse Operations modules.|
This is a commercial module developed by Practics Business Solutions, Openbravo's partner, that allows counting all the items in the inventory and to update the new amount in the inventory.
It is essential that all the products must be notified in the Products screen to make any process of the inventory. The processes that are supported by this option are the main ones:
- Allows counting items Front End
- Allows counting items Back Office
- Allows creating an "on the fly" inventory front end
- Can load a Count list created in Front End
- Supports product attributes
- Supports the module MultiUPC (if installed)
- Can execute custom extension points
Auto create count list from Front End
A new preference can be set in order to create automatically a count list when a bin is selected or scanned in the front end.
How it Works
|Remember that to access the front end, the URL <your-openbravo-domain>/openbravo/web/eu.practics.mobile.inventory must be opened|
Creating a Count List in Backoffice
This module has also the choice to support counting items from a previous count list created before in Back Office.
Let's see how is the process:
First at all, create a Physical Inventory
Then we can create a count list using one of the standard ways:
1. Using the Create Inventory count list button
2. Adding new lines with the products to count
Loading a Count List
With this option, the user has the ability to load a previously created count list in back office.
To do so, the second button should be clicked, the one selected in the below picture.
To select the previous product, select the magnifying glass, and select the list.
A popup will appear to let the user filter and selecting an inventory to load. After selecting the inventory all the lines to be counted will be shown on the list.
Creating new Physical Inventory
Also known as "on the fly" inventory.
Using the new (*) button, the user can create a new document, allowing to set a name, choosing the warehouse and the storage bin.
After that, the products can be scanned to be included in the inventory.
By default, the system will automatically the name with today's date. Users can modify the name of the inventory, select a warehouse and a storage bin, select an attribute and select a reason for the new inventory created.
The user can change the document properties using the blue section in the left panel.
By default, the name of the inventory is set to the current date, but it can be modified clicking into the button and setting the new value.
Setting current Warehouse and Storage Bin
When a new document is created, the warehouse will be set with the same value as the one that has the user session. To change either the warehouse or the storage bin, the user must click the button. After that, a popup will appear, letting the user choose the new value.
The module supports scanning bin barcodes and products. When a product is read, a new line is created or the quantity counted is increased if a line exits with the same product/bin.
Modify counted quantity
A product can be selected in order to modify the counted quantity manually.
