Stock Take

The Stock Take feature has been made to help you realize your stock-takes.

It’s available from menu Inventory >  Stock Take.

1. Creation

To create a new stock transfer, access its main screen first (Inventory  > Stock Take).

Then once the grid is displayed, click on New Stock Take button located at the bottom-right corner of the screen.

This will load a new screen called “Create new Stock Take” :

Here is the description of each field displayed on this screen :

Name of the stock take
Warehouse where the stock take is processed
FullFull mode will set to 0 every products not scanned
PartialPartial mode will not set to 0 for products not scanned.
Stock take current status
Not managed at the moment
Use bin locations
Allows to process the stock take location by location. Useful in the Scan screen, especially when the Product Selection option is set on “All”
Product Selection
Select the stock take processing method
Only enabled if the Product Selection method is set on “Manufacturer”. Allow to chose products manufacturer(s) to process the stock take on
Add personal notes about this stock take

Set the Product Selection option on “All” can throw time out errors on the “Scan products” screen, as products collection loaded can become really big.

We advise you to use a “Random” or “Manufacturer” value for the Products selection option, in order to limit the products collection size and prevent time out problems.

If you still want to process a stock take on all your products at the same time setting the Products Selection option on “All”, please also enable the option Use bin locations. This will add a “Location scan” step at the “Scan” page load, limiting the products to scan to the chosen location, and so prevent time out errors.

2. Scan Products

You can also scan products you want to add to the stock take using your barcode scanner, with the “Scan” function.

This function is available clicking on the Scan Products button, located next to the Save button.

The “Scan” screen looks like :

From this screen, simply scan your products barcode to add them to the stock take.

You can also use the + and - buttons to increase or decrease the quantity manually.
If it seems that barcodes are not well recognized, please check :

That ERP can correctly find them by typing their barcode using your keyboard, making sure nothing is focused when you type the code.
That your barcode scanner is correctly adding a carriage return at the end of each barcode scanned.
Use the “Save” button to validate your scans. Then you can check what have been scanned in the “Products” tab.

3. Import Products

If you don’t want to scan your products, you can also import a csv file with the scanned quantity.

It can be done in the “Import / Export” tab.

4. Print

The “Print” button allows to print a PDF file with all products in the stock-take and their status.

5. Apply the stocktake

Once your stocktake is complete, you can apply it using the “Apply” button.

All stock movements that will be created are listed in a grid in order to check what is going to be applied.

You can then use the “Create stock movements” button to update your stock levels.
