If you are shipping orders for different customers and with larger items, full pallets, or SKUs that are not similar, we recommend a single pick process. If an order has not been assigned a pick job in 3PL Warehouse Manager, the system will automatically create a pick job once it reaches a Complete status and will prioritize jobs based on an order’s creation date and transaction number.
This article reviews how to pick a single order with SmartScan.
- Log in to SmartScan.
- Ensure the appropriate 'Warehouse' is selected from the drop-down list, then tap the Pick module. Note that the number displayed reflects the amount of orders available to pick.
- You have two options to pick a single order—you can search for a specific Transaction ID, or you can review each pick that is assigned to you.
- To pick a specific order, scan the associated transaction number from a pick ticket or packing slip, tap Start Pick, then continue to Step 5. If you are unable to scan, you can also type the transaction number, then tap Pick Transaction.
- To review each job available to pick, continue to Step 4.
- Tap Single Order Pick Job.
- To begin the order shown, tap Start Pick.
- To skip to the next prioritized order, tap Skip Pick. Once all orders are skipped, there will be an option to 'Reset Pick' to the beginning of the list of pick jobs.
- If a specific location is associated with the pick job, SmartScan will direct you to proceed to that location.
- The Pick SKU/UPC dialog box will open. Scan the 'Location' and 'SKU/UPC' for the first item, as well as any required track-by's, such as Lot Number or Serial Number.
- Enter the SKU 'Quantity', then tap Done. The line item will show a green check to indicate the inventory has been picked.
- Repeat Steps 5 and 6 until all items are picked. If you have multiple pages of line items to pick, tap one of the green arrows to navigate to the next or previous page of line items.
To unpick an item, select the appropriate line item, then tap Unpick SKU. Repeat the pick as needed.
- Once you have completed the pick job, tap Finish Pick. A confirmation message will appear.
If you were unable to pick all items associated with the pick job and you have the 'Force Pick Complete' permission applied to your user role, the application will allow you to pick the partial inventory and prompt you to specify a reason. Once selected, tap Complete and you will receive the confirmation message.
Now that the pick is complete, the Pick Done Date column will populate with the appropriate data in the Find Orders grid and the order will display in the Pack module.
