Inventory Overview

 
Summary:

Conducting an Inventory is the main functionality of TagMatiks Wedge. The process involves using an RFID device to collect RFID tag data that can then be further exported based on your business needs.

To create an inventory, follow the steps below:

Click on the Menu > Inventory.

This will show you the Pending Inventory List. Once you start doing Inventories, they will show up here. To create a new inventory, press the + icon. You'll be prompted to enter a name for the inventory (Inventory Name) which can be anything of your choice, up to 50 characters. You can also edit this later.

If you want to continue with an existing inventory, you can simply select it from the list.

From a scanning perspective, you have the option to either use the trigger / button on the physical RFID hardware or press the Scan / Stop button to trigger reads.
