Stock counts can be performed on a mobile device using the Restaurant365 Mobile App available for iOS and Andriod devices. Click here for more information on Stock Counts in Restaurant365 or here for more information on how to download and use the R365 Mobile App.
Users will be able to perform inventory counts using Stock Count Templates that have been previously created inside the full version (web) of Restaurant365. Two users can add to the same stock count on a mobile device as long as the mobile quantity is set to 'Add to Quantity' on a stock count. It is important to note, however, that once a stock count is in use on a mobile device or a desktop computer, it is best to use only one of those devices to conduct a stock count. If a User were to start a stock count on a desktop and then save, that count could then be continued on a mobile app, but two Users shouldn't use both a desktop computer and the mobile app at the same time for the same stock count.
Navigate to Stock Count List
Once logged in, click the button in the top left corner and select Stock Counts. This will take you to the Stock Count List shown below:
Open / Create Stock Count
To open an existing Stock Count, click the arrow on the right side of that count row. To create a new Stock Count from a Stock Count Template, press 'Templates' at the bottom of the screen. The Stock Count Template list will load as shown below:
Swipe left on the row of the desired Stock Count Template and a 'Use' button will appear on the right side of that row (pictured on 3rd row of image below). Press the 'Use' button to create a new Stock Count. The new Stock Count will then load
Enter Count Quantities
The User can now enter a Qty for each item row of the Stock Count.
- Note: for Items that have Multiple Count U of Ms (Inventory U of M, Count U of M 2, Count U of M 3), multiple Qty boxes will be present on the Stock Count screen. Click here for more information on Multiple Count U of Ms
Use the number pad on your device to enter the Qty for each respective U of M and then click the 'Next' button on the number pad to move to the next field.
Save the Stock Count
When finished entering all quantities click the menu button in the top right corner (the three dots / ellipses (...). This menu contains the Save, Count Complete, and Delete options. Always ensure to save the quantities entered. Clicking 'Save' or 'Count Complete' will save the data in the Stock Count, while clicking 'Delete' will delete the Stock Count.
- Note: If the mobile device is offline while counting, the quantities entered will be saved to the device. When an internet connection is available the User can open the Stock Count and click 'Save' and the quantities will be uploaded in to Restaurant365.
Approve the Stock Count
The final necessary action is for a User with the requisite Security Role to Approve (lock) the Stock Count. When Approved, the Stock Count will have an affect in the Accounting Module. Users with the 'Accounting Manager' Security Role have the ability to Approve Stock Counts. Additionally, Users with the Secondary Security Role 'Approve Stock Count' have the ability to Approve Stock Counts.
