Stock Check / Counting - How do you do it??

Hi Everyone,

We are really struggling to find a time effective way to be able to check the qty's of stock. This is our process:

Open my inventory
Scan barcode
check stock of item (update if needs be)
Select the scanned barcode and delete ready for a new scan

I know this doesn't seem like much but it's very time consuming when we have nearly 4000 different sku's.

The 'stock count' window in linn desktop was awesome, but it seems this plus a load of other very basic functionality (analytics/re order low stock) have been totally forgotten in linn.net!

Thanks

Will

 

Hello Will,


In regards to Analytics and Reorder Low Stock - this is something that is being actively worked on and is expected to be released for Linnworks.net soon as well. I don't have any ETA on this yet I'm afraid as these are parts of quite a massive update and a rework of the Purchase Order module, so we have to be sure it will function properly.



In regards to the Stock Check and counting

I do get that Linnworks.net doesn't have a module for this, however perhaps it would be easier to use our reporting tool - Dashboards > Query Data > Query Type: Stock Items with levels.


This way you will get a .csv file with all of your stock level for a selected location. On that file you should be able to simply compare the stock levels that you have in your Inventory with what is actually in the warehouse.

Once you adjust the stock levels in the file you can feel free to simply import it using Inventory Import or Stock Level Import, which will overwrite your stock levels in bulk: https://www.linnworks.com/support/settings/import-and-export-data/import-data/import-types/inventory-import Or https://www.linnworks.com/support/settings/import-and-export-data/import-data/import-types/stock-level

There never seems to be an ETA for these updates, we all get pretty tired of hearing that 'it's coming soon' or 'it's just around the corner'. Let's be honest these could take years to complete, and its the most BASIC of functionality! Please do something about it, we have moved to a monthly subscription and are starting to look around at other software. I really like LW, but the .net version seems like such a backwards step. All I want is more specified dates as to when things will get done, and just the basic functionality of desktop in .net! Not to much to ask is it?

Hi Will


Totally concur - seems we work on workarounds.


Now we dont use BIN Locations so what we do is send out a few peeps. Once they have checked they will update the Bin to for example ZZAM. We will then find all that do not have this bin location and try to find manually 


Bit crappy but make do with what we have


Thanks 

We use stockwise one of the integrated apps and that works well especially for mixed bin locations. 



Mark - are you having any issues with Stockwise at the moment? crashing with a critical error?
