Relocating inventory refers to changing the location code(s) associated
with sku numbers. Normally this location code identifies different cases
or windows or trays or the vault. However some jewelers use it to
identify which salesman has the item or even which store the item is in.
Note that in the case of multiple stores where each store runs an
independent copy of Jewelry Shopkeeper, then you use the Interstore
Transfer feature not the relocate feature.
To relocate a single item choose option 2,8,E to Edit Inventory
To relocate several items chose option 2,8,R Relocate Inventory Between
When you choose 2,8,R you can choose where the items are coming FROM
but this is optional if you don't care where they are taken from.
The TO location is required
If you choose Yes for the barcode reader then the relocation screen will
accept a quantity of one for each item you scan without waiting for you
to confirm the quantity. It will then wait for the next item immediately.
This is to speed up the relocation. However, if you want to read with a
barcode reader but slow it down and verify the quantity manually you
can choose No.
A relocation tracking number will automatically be assigned which lets
you print a relocation report. If you want to add to a previous relocation
number, type that in before adding new items. Note that if you type
in a previous relocation number, the screen where you enter the sku numbers
does NOT show the previous items but those previous items WILL appear on
the same relocation report.
The relocation tracking number is based on the date and the location
used, so if you want to make two separate relocation reports for the
same location on the same day, then you will have to manually augment
the relocation tracking number. E.g. you could add a 1 or 2 at the end.
