An inquiry scan allows you to scan an item to see general information about it without scanning it in or out of your system. The following information appears when you scan an item on the Inquiry Scan screen:
- Serial Number
- Last Known Location
- Location Home Base
Performing an Inquiry Scan
- On the Warehouse menu, click Inquiry Scan.
- Scan the item that you are inquiring about.
There are several methods for scanning equipment:
- 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. 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.
