  1. Once you have accessed the screen, fill out the information as desired to create an active stock count with the filters you have supplied.
    Example: Entering a bin will allow you to create a stock count for all items in that bin, while entering an item will allow you to create a stock count for that item in all bins.
  2. Filling out both fields creates a stock count for that particular item in that particular bin
    Note: Site is a required field.
  3. Finally, you can choose to enter a stock count ID – this is not required, and not entering an ID will result in one being generated for you.
  4. Clicking Submit when finished filling in the fields will create the stock count and all corresponding stock count lines. You will be notified of the successful creation of the stock count – clicking OK will return you to the Stock Counts screen to begin using your new stock count.
