The Free Scan In page allows you to scan any inventory and it will return that inventory to its respective Manifest. For example, using the Free Scan In page, you can scan a large pile of inventory that just returned from five different jobs. Without having to leave the Free Scan In page, Flex will route and return all the inventory to the correct Manifest.
Free Scan In instruction begins at 6:55 in the video:

You can get to the Free Scan In page from the Hamburger menu (under the Warehouse section), or by setting up a quick link in your Quick Launcher widget.
When you are on the Free Scan In page, you can scan inventory several ways (all of which are outlined on the instruction page when you first open the Free Scan In page).
- Type a barcode into the barcode input field
- Tap the camera icon (top right) and scan a barcode with the device's camera
- Connect a bluetooth scanner and enter bluetooth scan mode by tapping the bluetooth icon (top right, next to the camera icon).
Just like in the desktop version of Flex, when you are on a scanning page, you are scanning from a specific warehouse location. If you only have one warehouse set up in Flex, then you will always be scanning from that location. But if you have multiple warehouse locations, then we recommend verifying that you are scanning from the correct location by checking the current location at the bottom of the list (in the footer section).
To change the location, tap the location name and choose the new location from the popup window.
