Note: If you are accepting a transfer to a mulitbin Location, you will need to select a bin at the top of the screen.
Once you are finished selecting the items you want to accept, select Confirm Transfers at the bottom of the screen to complete the transfer.
To create a transfer from your current Location in SalesPad Cloud Barcode, select Create a Transfer.
Note: Transfers created in SalesPad Cloud Barcode must be transfers from the currently selected Location (in this documentation, the Lowell warehouse) to another Location.
Select the + button in the upper right-hand corner.
Choose a warehouse to transfer to by selecting the Select a Warehouse button.
Add items to your transfer by selecting the + button in the upper right-hand corner.
Select an inventory item from the Select an Item screen. That item will be added to your transfer. Since the transfer is from the currently selected warehouse, this screen only displays inventory in that same warehouse.
If you select a serial or lot tracked item, you will be redirected to a screen that allows you to select from a list of serial/lot items currently in your warehouse. Choose from these items by selecting the + Add a Serial / + Add a Lot button at the bottom of the screen.
To change quantity information for a non serial/lot tracked item, select that item from your transfer and enter the quantity information on the next screen.
Select the Transfer button in the upper left-hand corner to return to your transfer.
When you are finished adding items to your tranfer, select Save at the bottom of your screen.
Your transfer is now available to be received by the appropriate warehouse.
Note: Transfers from your currently selected warehouse that have not yet been received will appear on the Transfers screen in SalesPad Barcode. Select any of these transfers to make changes to them.
To receive inventory via SalesPad Cloud Barcode, select Receiving from the menu on the left-hand side of the screen.
While on the main screen of the Receiving module, you can scan the barcode for the purchase order, receipt, or vendor item you wish to receive, or you can select from a list of options.
Select Purchase Orders to search all un-posted, released purchase orders. Select Vendors to search for purchase orders associated with each of your vendors. Select Receipts to view all purchase receipts in the currently selected receiving batch, and select Select Receiving Batch to change receiving batches.
Once you've selected a purchase order, either by scanning it, finding it in the Purchase Orders lookup, or finding it by searching for purchase orders by vendor, purchase receipts associated with the purchase order will display. If there are no associated purchase receipts, SalesPad Cloud Barcode will generate a new purchase receipt. Once a specific purchase receipt has been selected or generated, the Receipt Entry screen will display the receipt.
Once you've opened a receipt, select or scan item numbers/UPC/SKU information to fulfill the items. Selecting a non-tracked item will redirect you to a screen that allows you to enter quantity information.
Serial or lot information that is missing from a purchase receipt will be indicated by red highlights and text.
Select the serial/lot-tracked item to edit quantity, serial, and/or lot information either manually or by scanning item numbers. Once the serial or lot information has been entered, select Add to add it to the purchase receipt.
Note: This screenshot is for a serial-tracked item being receiving into a multibin warehouse. For non-multibin warehouses, the Bin section will not be visible. For lot-tracked items, there is a separate text box with a stepper for adjusting quantity.
To remove serial/lot information from this screen, simply swipe left on the number you wish to remove. Select Back to return to the Receipt Entry screen.
Once you are finished fulfilling items on a purchase receipt, select Save at the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
The Receipt Entry screen for a receipt in a non-multibin warehouse will display a list containing each line on the purchase receipt. Each line displays the item number, UofM, quantity on receipt, the purchase order number (if the purchase receipt line is attached to a purchase order line), and the quantity received on the purchase order.
Quantity received on the purchase order is a value on the purchase order line representing the sum of the quantities of associated receipt lines, which means that this number will not update until the receipt is saved. If you open a receipt with quantity already on it, the quantity on that receipt line will be reflected on the corresponding purchase order line. If you then make a change to the quantity on the receipt line and save the receipt, quantity on the purchase order line will be adjusted up or down by the amount changed.
Receiving in a multibin warehouse is very similar to receiving in a non-multibin warehouse. The receipt view is much the same, except that the line entries can be groups of line items pointing to different bins, so that you can receive to different bins. Items are generally grouped by Item Number, PO Number, and UofM. The exception to such grouping is tracked items in a non-base UofM. These items will be displayed separately so that they can be received in the base UofM.
When an item has been selected to fulfill, a screen displaying available bins will appear. Select or scan the desired bin. The following screenshot is for a non-tracked item. Serial/lot tracked items will also have serial/lot entry fields on this screen.

Inventory information for that item will appear. Select from the Details, Warehouse/Bins, Receipts, and Adjustments options at the bottom of the screen for different data screens.
To conduct a stock count using SalesPad Barcode, select Stock Counts from the menu on the left-hand side of the screen.
Select a stock count to conduct from the Stock Count screen. If you do not see a stock count on this screen, it is because you haven't started one in SalesPad Cloud.
Once you've opened the stock count, select New in the upper right-hand corner to create a child stock count. The child stock count is what you will use in SalesPad Cloud Barcode. Multiple employees can conduct child stock counts at the same time.
Now that you've created a child stock count, you can begin scanning items in. To scan in an item, select the camera icon in the upper right-hand corner.
Once you're done scanning in items onto your child stock count, select the Save button at the bottom of the screen to save and complete the child stock count. Once all the child stock counts are finished in SalesPad Cloud Barcode, you will need to finish the parent stock count in SalesPad Cloud.
Note: If the stock count created in SalesPad Cloud is a Cycle stock count, you can only scan in items that have been added to the stock count in SalesPad Cloud. If the stock count is a Physical count, you can scan any of your inventory items onto the count.
