When you want a specific action to be completed on a certain amount of packs, you can create orders.


The operators can use the orders to scan the packs using the Movilitas Mobile or Movilitas Desktop application, or you can upload the serial numbers for the order and submit the order.


You can search for and monitor the status of an order, update an order, and remove an order from the list.

Uploading Serials and Submitting the Order without Scanning

Instead of scanning the serial numbers on the packs using Movilitas Mobile or Movilitas Desktop, you can upload the serial numbers of the packs that belong to the order using a comma-separated values (CSV) file. The file must contain the global trade item number (GTIN), the batch, the expiration date, and the serial number for each item.


You can upload multiple CSV files to the same order. After the serial numbers of the packs are uploaded, you can submit the order to complete the action specified in it.


Before You Begin


Prepare the CSV file with the serials.


Procedure


1. In the Wholesaler FMD application, select the Orders tab. The application displays the list of orders.

2. Find and select the order to upload serials for it. The application displays the Update order form.

3. Click Upload serials tab. The application displays an instruction about the CSV file format and an upload history.


The following example illustrates a case before the first upload:



4. Read the instruction and make sure that the CSV file you want to upload is in the right format, containing the header (GTIN,BATCH,EXPIRY_DATE,SERIAL).

5. Click Select File for Import. The Upload File button becomes active.

6. Click Upload File button.


  • The CSV file is imported
  • The order is set to In progress status
  • The order history is updated
  • The system is refreshed with the uploaded items.


Note: You can upload multiple CSV files one after the other, for example, due to an order update with an increased number of items. The Wholesaler FMD application is refreshed with the items of each CSV file.


7. Find and select the order for which you uploaded the serials, and click the Upload serials tab. You can view the CSV upload history.


Example:



8. Check the uploaded items and the order history by clicking the Scanned items tab and the Order history tab, respectively.


9. Once all the serials are uploaded, go to the Orders list and find the order. Submit the order by clicking the Play icon and confirming the submit action in the dialog window.


Example:



The order is submitted to the NMVS system. The order gets an NMVS transaction ID that you can check under Orders --> Transactions tab.


Next Steps


Track the order status: 

  • View the Order --> Order history tab.
