Barcode Scanning Feedback
When Scanning a Barcode, the scanning view at the top left provides feedback regarding what was scanned, and the validity of the barcode. If it scans red, that cautions the user that the barcode does not exist in the cloud. Set aside and review. Possible reasons are that the item was never originally inventoried, the pack-out device containing this original inventory was never uploaded, the barcode was deleted, or the barcode does not match the search criteria (pick-list) selected.

Tapping the Smart Search Filter before scanning or searching for contents will provide a breakdown of all the contents in your possession based on popular filters such as Contents To Clean, Rush Contents, Open Pick-Lists, and Contents Without Location.
Tapping the Smart Search Filter AFTER scanning or manually searching for contents will yield a valuable breakdown of these contents. Depending on the operators task, this level of feedback will ensure the right action/transfer is being applied to the right contents.
Each time an option in the Smart Search Filter is Selected (then press OK), the contents list will be refined and refreshed to reflect the chosen filters. Select the Smart Search Filter again to see a new breakdown based on the prior filter. Keep filtering, or clear at any time. Great tools to help you navigate to help complete the task at hand.
