It is possible that you need to scan items in a location that has no Internet connection or the Internet connection is limited to certain areas. 


You can perform offline scanning for the following action:

  • Verification


The scanned items are cached and you can check them in the offline list. Once your device is connected to the Internet again, you can log in to the mobile application, open the offline scanned items in the Serialized Logistics application, and submit all items at once.


Note: Offline scanning is only possible when the Movilitas Mobile version 3 (v3) application is installed on a mobile device. Offline scanning is not supported in a web browser.


The procedure 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 scanning-related GUI buttons, like Continue Scan, may not be displayed and the user needs to press the physical button on the device to scan.


Before You Begin


Make sure the administrator has assigned you as an operator to the Serialized Logistics application, assigned you to a warehouse, and authorized you to complete verification.


The administrator can assign you to a warehouse having a configured channel, for example, SAP ATTP.
