- Scanning In From a Manifest
- Undoing a Scan
- Logging Maintenance on Items Being Returned
- Finalizing a Manifest Return
After equipment has returned from a job, it can be scanned back into your available inventory. One method of scanning equipment back in is to go to the return screen for a manifest. The return manifest screen will show all equipment that was scanned out to that manifest and allow you to scan each item back in.
Scanning In From a Manifest
- Open the Manifest that you want to scan.
- Click Go to Return Screen in the Workbench Menu.
There are several method for scanning equipment in:
- Use a Barcode Scanner – For serialized items, you will scan the unique barcode found on each serialized unit of the model. For non-serialized items, you will scan the model barcode, then enter the quantity that you want to scan. See Serialized vs. Non-Serialized for more information.
- Manually Enter Barcodes – You can manually enter a barcode into the barcode input box (to the right of the main menu in Flex). Like using a barcode scanner, you will manually enter unique barcodes for serialized units, and the model barcode for non-serialized items.
- Virtual Scan – To virtually scan an item, double-click on the line item in the return screen. If you virtually scan a serialized item, it will immediately be returned. If you virtually scan a non-serialized item, the quantity prompt will appear asking you to enter the quantity that you want to return.
By default, performing a virtual scan will cause a prompt to appear, asking you to verify the virtual scan. If you want to turn this prompt off, click Manage Prompt Preferences in the Workbench Menu, then uncheck the Virtual Scan Confirmation. Click SAVE to save changes.
Undoing a Scan
If you need to undo a scan, click the UNDO LAST SCAN button in the Last Scan tab. This feature is available within Flex4 and Flex5.
If you need to delete multiple scans, or a scan that you did earlier in the return process, you can use the Related Scan Records screen. To access this screen, click the cog wheel next to the item for which you need to delete a scan, then click Related Scan Records (Flex4 only).
Find the barcode(s) that you want to undo, then click the check box on the right side of the row so it turns to YES. Click ACCEPT, then Yes on the confirmation screen. The selected items will go back to unscanned.
Keep in mind, if you are returning items, you will see a scan record for the prep and the return (and any other scan that the item has received for the job). Be sure that you are undoing the correct scan.
Logging Maintenance on Items Being Returned
As you scan an item when returning, you will see a Log Damage button. See the Log Maintenance page to learn more about logging maintenance.
Finalizing a Manifest Return
As you have been scanning, you might have noticed that a green check mark appears next to any line item that has been returned.
As soon as all items have been returned (the progress bar at the top of the screen will say 100%), you will see a prompt asking if you want to finalize the return for the Manifest. If you are ready to finalize, click FINALIZE.
