Scan to Add Inventory


The best way to add inventory in the warehouse. Once you've got a warehouse layout setup with bin locations and labels, you'll be able to directly scan products into a bin either from a purchase order or by scanning a product then adjusting a quantity and allocating to the bin location.

If you've got a desktop or laptop with a camera, you can simply press the scan button, and hold the product in front of the camera. Once a product variant is detected, you will have a screen with various options, most importantly here is to 'Adjust Inventory' which will let you add a quantity and scan a bin to assign that quantity to the bin.
