The Count Module consists of five main areas:
- Inventory count card,
- Count configuration interface,
- Count worksheet interface,
- Validation and analysis reports, and
- Posting/transfer routines.
The Inventory Count Module allows you to define Count Cards for each count configuration. Count cards can be used to define and save inventory counts for each
location. A separate Inventory Count Card is normally created for each location, but you can specify multiple locations per count card if required.
The “Process” ribbon includes the most common tasks when using the Count Module.
The Count Sheet Lines page is the interface that is used to enter the inventory count.
The count worksheets can either be generated from the configuration page or created manually. A count worksheet is simply a list of items (with variant and location information) and a field to enter the count quantity.
The Count Module provides several reports for validating and analyzing the count sheets and physical count.
The Count Module uses the standard Dynamics 365 Business Central Warehouse and Item Physical Inventory journals, Consumption journal, and Reclass journal to post Inventory and WIP changes.
After the count worksheets have been validated, an authorized user runs the transfer functions to copy the Count Worksheet lines to the appropriate journals for posting. The transfer function copies those items that have differences between the on-hand and counted values.
