The Standard Count application can be used to perform inventory counts on your handheld if you have not purchased the Advanced Inventory Count add-on. Standard Count allows you to interact with the Physical Inventory Journal in Business Central. If you have purchased Advanced Inventory Count it should be used instead of Standard Count.
Standard Count can be used to perform directed inventory counts.
- A directed count occurs when a physical inventory journal batch is used after calculating the expected inventory in Business Central. The warehouse employee using the batch has a list of bins and items to count. If the employee counts an item that does not exist in the batch, a new line will be added for that item.
This guide assumes that you are counting inventory in a location with bins. If you are not using bins you may skip any step that refers to them.
