The Prepare process allows you to prepare the order by entering the input material details and labeling those that do not contain the labels.


Note: The procedures described below take the use case when the operator scans the items by using the camera of the mobile device. For mobile devices with built-in scanners, the scanning-related GUI buttons, like Scan Order, may not be displayed and the user needs to press the physical button on the device to scan.


List of Procedures


Creating One or More Labels

The Create Label option helps you to create one or more labels per container (SSCC) and per line item of the order. This option is optimal when you have containers (SSCCs) with unevenly distributed quantities on them. You define the required number of SSCCs and the quantity to be put on them on the fly.


Note: You also need to select the Create Label option when you want to resume a previously started bulk creation of labels. For more information on bulk creation, see Creating Labels in Bulk.
