Adding Users, Warehouses, Printers, Labels

After the initial install is completed by Scanco Technical Support, it will be important for your IT person to know how to add new users or warehouses. Since this is all done on one tab, this document will jump right to the important points.

 

User setup:

If you want all users to use the same label design and printer, click the New Label button under the User Settings area on the Users and Warehouses Tab.

 

Click the + button next to User ID to add a new user.

In this case we are going to enter ALL as our user and click OK.

Transaction Type: use the drop down to choose ALL

Print Director: This field should default to your Print Director. If you have multiple Print Directors in remote locations you could use the drop down to choose the correct one.

 

Printer: Click the + button next to Printer field to add a new Printer, or you could use the drop down to choose an existing Printer.

The name of the Printer will be one of two things. See two examples below.

If the Printer is connected to the server directly or if the Printer has an assigned IP address, then you use the Printer name from Windows Print Queue.

If the Printer is attached to another PC, then you will use the \\PC_Name\Printer_Name. This information is the same as the Network Share for that Printer.  

Label File: click the 3 dots button next to the Label File field to pick your label text file. In most cases, the label text file was created by Scanco Technical Support.

 

 

My example below shows I have two label designs. I will pick the ITEM.txt

 

 

Setting record as the default:

If the entry you are making is the one you want to be the default, set the “Use as Default” box to checked. More information will be provided about this option later in this document.

 

 

Finished result for setting up one label for all users to be sent to one printer:

 

Setting up multiple users and multiple printers: You can set up a different label design for each transaction used on the scanning devices in many different ways including “ALL” as explained above in combination with specifying a certain label and\or printer for certain users.

Example 1: If we build on what was shown above by adding one new record the result is User 001 will use the PO label when they receive under their login. User 001 will still print under the “ALL” record whenever they are in any application other than PO.

 

  

Example 2: The example below shows User 001 will print Inventory and PO labels to a different printer than all other users.

  

Setting up Warehouse Based Printing: If you have one printer in each warehouse and you want all users to print to the printer that corresponds with the warehouse printer, the steps are basically as shown below.

Example 1: All users in each Warehouse will print the same label for all transactions to the same printer.

 

Example 2: Users in Warehouse 000 will print one label for Inventory and one label for PO to the same printer. All other Warehouses will print the same label for all transactions to the same printer.

 

 

Setting up multiple labels for one user: the example below shows two labels setup for one user. One is the default and the other is a secondary choice.

 

Substitutions Tab:

Creating your own substitutions is possible depending on the module and data required.

Examples:

  1. You could print the Sale Order number listed on each Purchase Order line detail for each item when printing from Receiving by item or Receiving by Order. This same sub would not work when printing from Scanco Invoicing or Shipping. NOTE: the ID you create needs to not have $ = LINEKEY, but the sub you use in the label will need the $ included = $LINEKEY$.

An Example for getting the Extended Discription for an item would be:

SELECT CI_ExtendedDescription.ExtendedDescriptionText FROM {OJ CI_Item INNER JOIN CI_ExtendedDescription ON CI_Item.ExtendedDescriptionKey = CI_ExtendedDescription.ExtendedDescriptionKey} where CI_Item.Itemcode = '$ITEMCODE$'

 

  1. You could print the Sale Order number listed on the Purchase Order Header and all item labels will have that Sale Order number when printing from Receiving by item or Receiving by Order.

 

After you have created the new substations you can maintain them on the main screen.

  

Prompt Subs Tab:

Creating your own keyboard prompts is possible.

Create the ID without $ like shown below, but include $ in your label like this $TRACKING$

 

 

When printing you will have to use “Prompt Me” or “Manual” printing methods to get to the keyboard prompts you have created.

 

 

After you have created the new Keyboard prompts you can maintain them on the main screen.
