When the Certified Material Issue option has a Prefix the user will be prompted to scan the actual item and then scan a barcode on a printout where the barcode contains the Prefix you have set up and the item number.

How the data gets into Work Ticket Entry:

In Sage, under the

"Mobility for Barcode" module, in the "Main" folder, you will need to run the

" EZ Import"

Once the EZ Import is running, press the "Proceed" button.
Data will be imported as it is sent from mobile devices. Any data collected while the EZ Import was not running will be imported as soon as you press the Proceed button.

After importing data you will find the Work ticket entry with all the data that was collected on the mobile device. The Work ticket entry can be reviewed before running your Work Ticket Transaction Journal/Update.
