New Item Notification – Inventory Count


When creating a new Inventory Count, a modal will appear where the Location and template will need to be selected.



At the bottom of this template, a 'New Items Available' warning will be listed if new items were added to your database. Clicking 'Update' will enable the User to either add new items to the template or dismiss the new item alert.



When 'Update' is selected, the 'Update Inventory Count Template' modal will open and list all of the new items added to your database since this template was last used. Users can add and/or dismiss new items individually or in bulk.

Items can be added in one of the following ways:

  • Individually - Click the 'Add' next to the desired item in the 'New Items' section

A listing of all Storage Locations will appear where the User can select the desired Storage Location(s) and then click 'Add' to add those items.

When new items are added, they can be rearranged within the corresponding Storage Location list by clicking the rearrange iconbefore the item name and dragging and dropping the item where desired in the listing. In addition to this, Users can also remove a newly added item by clicking the trash can iconat the end of the item row. If deleted, the system will recognize it as a 'Dismiss' action and delete it from the template.
