Hello, this is Mike, Finale Inventory. Gonna to give you a short demonstration on how to do a transfer with barcode scanner here in Finale. So, it’s a very simple and easy to do operation. We’ll start from the stock screen in Finale. So, on this example, you’ll see that I have the APIE item highlighted. And that we have three units in location M3. So, let’s say we wanna transfer from M3 to M1. Well, that’s easy to do. So, what we would do, I’m going to show you by pulling up the camera here. And we’re going to get into the view here for you to see this. But from the home screen here, we would choose the transfer option and the first thing it’s gonna ask is enter the “from sublocation”, so, where you gonna transfer it from? Well, there in M3, so, all we need to do is scan this barcode over here that’s representation of the M3 sublocation. The next thing that the unit’s going to do is ask you where do you wanna transfer it to. So, we’ll transfer it to this M1 sublocation.

The next thing it’s gonna ask you is, let’s go ahead and scan the item you wish to transfer from M3 to M1. So, I can just sit here and transfer all three units if I want or just one, but if I scan the apple pie, that counts one item, so, you’ll see that it says last right there at the bottom. It says, last one of the apple pie. So, I’ve transferred one. If I scan another one, it’s transferred two. If i scan the third one, I’ve transferred three. So, if we want to review that, we can actually see all the items that we’ve transferred. I could do a review, and you’ll see that we have transferred three APIEs from M3. And go back to the main menu. That’s it. That’s as easy it is to do a stock transfer with barcode scanner solution from Finale Inventory.
