Case 1: Get information and update quantity

First of all we need to open the ‘Quick Info’ menu. And scan any item right now. For example ‘Green Tea’. We can see the price, quantity on hand, weight, volume and etc.

Below we see where this product is stored, its lot numbers, expiration dates, packages, product owner, how many are reserved and etc.

We can also scan the location (in our case bin3) to check how many items should be there. The app (and Odoo) thinks that there is only one kilo, but in reality we see two. Let’s update qty on the spot!

let’s check a Serial number. It’s LOT 2. And we enter quantity 2.

And let’s quickly check what’s now in Bin 3. Yes, now we see 2 kilos here.

Case is Done.

Case 2: Change product info and print label in Odoo

Besides of basic info about product you can also see all general information,  and change it. Let’s scan the item (in our case – Groot).

Clicking on the ‘Info icon’, and we see full information about this product: product name, internal reference, barcode ( we can change it or insert if it missed), also we can change routes, odoo product category, weight, volume, tracking, location and other.

But it’s another story, you can find more details in our video “How to print product labels from Odoo directly to a printer with 1 click using Odoo Direct Print PRO“: product labels from Odoo

Case 3: Replenishment

We can scan not only Odoo product barcode, but Lot or Serial number. For example, let’s scan serial number of our Mac Book.

Case 4: Move products and put them in pack in Odoo

Let’s check the notepads. BTW, you may search for product manually instead of scanning if you wish.

We see that it’s in Bin 4 in Odoo, but in reality in Bin 5. We can easily move this item from one location to another. Click on ‘Transfer’
