In warehouse mobile, we have many flows that uses the item number or we have to state the item number of course, the find item or show item picture, you will have to enter an item number, but also in the received and put away and pick flow, shipping flow, etc, you will need to state an item number.
And everywhere we find the item number in the same way, so you can use different kinds of barcoding.
And let’s see how the logic for finding the item number is working.
So when the mobile flow tells you to state the item number and you enter a number in the item number, the logic will be first of all, it’s looking at is it a barcode or not.
So it looks for identifiers to figure out if it’s a barcode, a barcode identifier.
If it’s not a barcode, it will try to find the item from the item number directly. If it’s existing on the item number, of course, it will just pass that item number.
If not, it will try to find it from the Global Trade Item Number on the item card.
If not, it will try to find the item reference number on the item card.
That will be the logic if it’s not a barcode.
If it is a barcode, it will test first of all if it’s a GS1 barcode or not.
If it’s not a GS1 barcode, it will just remove the barcode identifier so basically you can use all kinds of barcodes and scan it, and it will just remove the identifiers and continue the normal test for items global trade number or item reference number.
Whereas if it is a GS1 barcode, it will diffract the barcode in different pieces and pass all those pieces through to the next flows.
So it will pass item number, lot number, serial number, expiration date, and if the next flows are using some of those information, it will automatically grab it, meaning if you just scan the fine item, it will just use the item number from the GS1 barcode.
