The Receive process allows you to receive the orders by using the mobile application. Multiple users can work on the same order in parallel but only one user can scan for a line item at one time. If a user is working on a line item, that line item is occupied and the other user needs to select another line item.


You can receive the orders in two ways:

  • Receive goods in a single shipment OR
  • Receive goods in multiple shipments


Note: The procedures described below takes 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 GUI buttons related to scanning, like Scan Item, may not be displayed and you need to press the physical button on the device to scan.
  • For devices with external (table) scanners, you can point the scanner to the barcode to scan and you can ignore the GUI buttons on the screen related to scanning.
