    When conducting an inventory count, can we use more than one scanner to conduct the inventory count from the same list? (knowing we can’t exceed the 5 device concurrent limit).

    Hi Craig,

     

    That is technically possible – however, I want to advise that it’s easy for users to “bump heads” when counting the same list of items. Keep in mind that the screen may not refresh if one user updates a line on a different scanner.

    So it would be possible and better if they each had their own list of inventory items to eliminate them “bumping heads”?

    Yes, it would be my preference to have different lists of inventory items per scanner. Another approach if using a long list of items would be to have the users do opposite line sorting (you can sort by quickly tapping the column header and use ascending and descending order). Then there isn’t really a risk of bumping heads, except when each user gets to the middle of the item list and in which case they would probably be counting in a similar area and can communicate which line (item/bin) they are about to handle.
