17. License Plates

You are here:

The License Plates application is responsible for managing license plates independently of any specific document.

Core features of this application include:

  • Lookup Lists for license plates
  • Creating new license plates
  • Moving license plates
  • Managing/Adjusting license plates

You can access the License Plates application from the Home screen by clicking the License Plate link. When launched, the License Plate Lookup List page is displayed.

License Plate Lookup List

The Lookup List page allows you to either scan or select the license plate you need to view. Use the filter bar to filter the lookup list to specific license plates, if required.

Note: The maximum number of documents that appear in this list is configured in the Warehouse Insight Setup page via the Document Max List property (defaults to 100).
Note: To further enhance or change the Lookup List logic you will need to override event LICENSE PLATE::GetDocumentList (ID: 95007) to implement the required logic.

Adding Items

To add items to the license plate, complete the following:

  1. Scan the item to add.
  2. Enter the quantity and Item Tracking Information, if required.

The Scan Behaviors page can be configured to control aspects of this process. For example, you can configure it so that a quantity dialog does not appear but instead increments the count by one, or to change the default quantity or unit of measure.

Note: A license plate cannot have items added, modified or removed when it is assigned to a document.
