Moving Items

The standard process flow should be used when moving Items:

  • Scan the Bin to move from
  • Scan the Item to move
  • Enter the quantity received and Item Tracking Information (if required)
  • Switch to Place mode
  • Scan the Bin to move to

See General Document Handling for more information.

The Scan Behaviors page in NAV can also be further configured to control aspects of this process as well. For instance, it is possible to configure it such that a quantity dialog does not ever appear but instead increments the count by one, or to change the default quantity or unit of measure to move.

For more information about the Scan Behaviors consult the NAV Help.

Menus

The following menus are available by default for Ad-Hoc Movements. Menus may be added or removed as required from the Device Menus page in NAV under the “Application” Form with a selection of “ADHOC_MOVE” for the Application.

Close (Menu)

Closes the Movement journal and brings the user back to the Home page.

Post (Menu)

Post the journal lines. Users will be prompted to confirm that the post should occur.

Confirm

After posting of the document is complete the page will be closed, and the user brought back to the Home page.

Extensibility: To extend or customize the post routine you will need to override events: “ADHOC MOVE::Post” (ID: 20011) or “WHSE ADHOC MOVE::Post” (ID: 20075).

Print (Menu)

This option his hidden by default but can be made visible via the Device Menus page in NAV.

Sends a request to NAV to print NAV any configured report(s). You can configure which reports are printed in the IWX Report Selections with the “Whse. Reclass Movement” or “Reclass Movement” usage.

By default, the reports must be built with a top level DataItem of the type of journal line being printed. Example: Report “Inventory Movement” (ID: 7321) if printing an Item Reclass Movement.

Note: For more information on Printing and Printer selections see the NAV help.

Delete Line (Menu)

Deletes the currently selected line.

Copy Line (Menu)

Copies the currently selected line. This option is required when taking multiples of the same Item from the same bin or placing into multiple different bins.

Change Quantity (Menu)

Launches the Quantity dialog for the selected line.

Enter Bin (Menu)

This option is hidden by default but can be made visible via the Device Menus page in NAV.

Users will be prompted to type in the Bin that they wish to simulate scanning.

This option can be useful if Bin labels have become damaged or are inaccessible.

Note: It is usually more advisable to open the Bin Inquiry module (see menu options) and reprint the label.

Enter Item (Menu)

This option his hidden by default but can be made visible via the Device Menus page in NAV.

Users will be prompted to type in the Item that they wish to simulate scanning.

This option can be useful if Item labels have become damaged or are no longer readable.

Note: It might be more advisable to open the Item Inquiry module (see menu options) and reprint the item label depending on downstream process requirements (e.g. further scanning or item handling may be required).

Switch Take/Place

Will toggle between the take and place modes. In place mode, only the place Bin needs to be scanned. New lines can only be added while in take mode.

Item Inquiry (Menu)

Launches the Item Inquiry management screen pre-filtered to the selected line.

Bin Inquiry (Menu)

Launches the Bin Inquiry management screen pre-filtered to the active Bin.

Common Configurations and Requests

This section is intended to describe the most common scenarios, requests and features concerning Receiving. These topics should apply the same to all document types (Purchase Orders, Transfer Orders, Whse. Receipts). While some topics may require development or customizations, they are included here in order to provide a greater understanding of what the software is capable of.

Further information may be obtained from the NAV Help and Support Portal.

Moving Items to Different Locations

The Item Reclass Movements support moving Items from one Location to another, not just Bins. Only the place Location may be changed, the take location will always be the device’s configured location. To specify a new Location, take the following steps:

  • Create Take line(s)
  • Switch to Place mode
  • Select a Take line
  • Scan the Location barcode
    • If the new Location does not require Bins the New Location will be updated
  • Scan the Bin to move to
    • The New Bin and New Location fields will be updated
Note: If handling multiple lines going to the same Location (requiring Bins) you do not need to scan the Location again as all subsequent Bin scans will update the Location.

Moving License Plates

The Ad-Hoc movement supports scanning License Plates to move. When a License Plate is scanned the entire License Plate must be moved to the new Bin. To move License Plates, take the following steps:

  • Switch to Take mode
  • Scan the Bin the License Plate is in
  • In the LP Assignment dialog change quantities and usage actions
    • See Using a License Plate for more information
  • Switch to Place mode
  • Scan the Bin to move to
    • All License Plate generated Lines will be updated (unless the usage action indicated the LP was not to be used).
