Small.Fishbowl Mobile Receive.png Fishbowl Mobile is a wireless inventory solution that significantly increases inventory accuracy and worker productivity. Fishbowl Mobile provides users with the ability to efficiently receive inventory in a timely manner. Because the software is bar-code based, it also increases productivity with less human errors.

Before inventory may be received via Fishbowl Mobile, a Purchase Order must first be created and Issued through the Fishbowl Client. Fishbowl provides a convenient way to Receive items into Inventory with bar-coding capability.

Receive an Order

Within Fishbowl Mobile, items are received by highlighting the line item and choosing Receive.

The item will be received into the shown location. The Location may be changed by highlighting the line item and choosing the Edit icon. Likewise, quantities to be received may be changed by choosing the edit option.

If an item requires Tracking information to be entered, a Tracking section will be displayed upon choosing the Receive icon. The user may manually add, or may enter a range of data. Once all of the required tracking information has been entered, the user may choose OK and finish the receiving process. Once the item has been received, the Success message will be displayed along the bottom Toolbar of the Mobile Device.

Note: If, at this time, the user wishes to see the Inventory quantity available for each Location Group and Location for this item they may simply choose the highlighted Part link to be taken to view all inventory. If Tracking is required for the Item, the user may highlight a Location and select the Tracking icon to view all of the Tracking data currently in stock for the part. From the Inventory screen the user may also choose the Summary option and view all of the inventory On-Hand, Available, or Committed for this specific part.

Continue in the manner of highlighting and receiving until all of the items have been successfully received into Inventory. Once all of the items are received, the order will no longer appear in the Receiving Module.

Receive Part of an Order

Any order may be partially fulfilled by receiving only portions of the Purchase Order. If items have not arrived or are waiting to be received for some reason or another, then simply receive the appropriate items and choose Done when finished. This will return the user to the Receiving Module.

The items received will appear in inventory; however the order will remain in the Receiving Module as partially fulfilled until the remaining items have been received.

Receive Partial Quantity of an Item

Fishbowl Mobile allows users to receive a partial quantity amount of a specific item on an order. For example, say you had an order of 100 water bottles. Because the water bottles were on backorder, you only received 80. In addition, out of the 80 received, 2 were cracked. Therefore, you are only going to want to receive into your inventory 78 out of the 100.

The user also has the option to select a calculator icon, which displays a large set of numbers to manually enter the quantity with your fingers.
