The Deduct tab allows you to scan outgoing item barcodes, type or scan a location, and quickly deduct that item from your inventory. You can deduct inventory to address shrinkage, expired or outdated inventory, or to temporarily remove units from sale during assembly or refurbishment.
As you start scanning to deduct items, the items you've scanned will be laid out in a table. The columns shown on the table include:
Item: The details for each item being deducted:
- Name: The name of the item being deducted.
- SKU: The unique identifier that is tied to the item and its barcode.
- Current locations: A list of which warehouse locations the item is currently being kept in.
- Serial #s: A list of serial numbers that have been removed from this item during the deduction process (if any).
Location: The location that the item is being deducted from.
Quantity: The quantity being deducted per item.
To deduct items from inventory, you'll need to use a barcode scanner to input the barcode of each item you are deducting.
To start deducting, select Start scanning to gain access to the scan field. From here, you can begin scanning items with your connected Bluetooth or USB scanner.
To deduct items, you'll need to scan the item barcode first, followed by the location barcode. If either barcode is not available, you can type in the requested information manually. You can also specify a default warehouse and location to skip the location skip step.
If you want to deduct a large quantity of items, but don't want to scan each individual unit, you can select the Edit button to quickly change the quantity of an item that you wish to deduct. You can also remove an item from the deducting queue entirely with the Delete button.
When you are finished adding items to a deducting task, select Save to remove those units from your inventory.
