Add material

In the store view, the catalog of materials can be opened by clicking on the Add material button. For the material "boards" a distinction is made between boards and offcuts. 

The catalog contains all types created in materialManager or provided by tapio partners.

The selection can be limited with the filters or the search function.

If the material to be added has a QR code or barcode you can scan it with tablet after clicking on the scan button (1). Alternatively, this is also possible with a connected bluethooth scanner.

Clicking on the identified material type in the catalog (2) opens the Add material dialog.

If the material type could not be found in the catalog, it can be added by clicking on Add new type ( for edgebands) or on Board type not found in catalog? (for boards).   Details can be found in the materialManager documentation. After choosing the material type you can add new material. 

In the Add material dialog, different information can be stored depending on the material. For example, in the case of an edgeband, it is the length (1).

Furthermore, you can add the number (2) of material items (e.g. coils, boards) to be stored. For materials with materials management types like boards and edgebands you can additionally choose the material management type. 

In this dialog it also possible to add comments regarding the material to be stored. This is recommended for example if the material was ordered for a specific customer commission or if you want to store material specific information. 

Note: You can add the column Comments in the table view of the materialManager as well as materialAssist

The storage location (3) can be selected from a list. Alternatively, this is also possible by scanning the label of the storage location with the tablet or a connected bluetooth scanner.

By clicking on Confirm (4) the chosen storage location is saved. By clicking on Label & Confirm (5), a label for each material item is printed for materials without material management types.  For materials, which use material management types, the amount and type of printed label is depending on the chosen material management type. 

Selecting the storage location via scan automatically registers the storage, prints the corrosponding labels and closes the dialog.

Note: The option allocate storage later can be used, e.g. to book a goods receipt without allocating the material to a specific storage location. Then, the material already appears in the materialManager and in the store view of the materialAssist.
