Enable Stock Tags
Enabling the module allows it to interact with the Dynamics GP Cycle Count module. CompleteCount must be enabled to use the module. If CompleteCount is not enabled, navigation to the product’s windows will not be added, and CompleteCount’s controls on the Stock Count process will not be enabled. Restart GP for this setting to take effect.
When a Stock Count is entered into the Inventory Stock Count Entry window, GP does not allow a Variance Quantity that would bring On Hand below the quantity allocated. For example, if there are two units allocated, and GP thinks you have four, but the actual count is zero, GP will only allow you to adjust the quantity down to 2.
CompleteCount will allow overriding the allocation in certain circumstances. If Inventory Setup has the Allow Variance Overrides box marked, you can mark the Override Allocations box in Setup Complete Count. When marked, you will be able to submit a count where the Variance Quantity could drive the Available Quantity negative (or more negative).
This ONLY works for non-serial/lot controlled inventory.
If the count includes serial/lot numbered inventory, you will still need to unallocate enough inventory to allow the count to be submitted. Further, if a Stock Count has both serial/lot controlled inventory, and non-tracked items, you will not be able to submit the count until the serial/lot allocation issues are resolved.
Lock Auto-Post Variance
When marked, the Autopost Stock Count Variances checkbox on Stock Count Entry will be locked so that it cannot be changed on the Stock Count Entry window. Whether or not the Auto-post box is marked by default is set in the Inventory Control Setup window. Restart GP for this setting to take effect.
Prevent Editing Submitted Count
After submitting the stock tags back into the Inventory Stock Count Entry window this setting prevents making any changes to the count in Stock Count Entry. The Cancel button will be locked, the scrolling window will be view-only, and Reuse Count will be locked. Use this setting when you are implementing a controlled stock count process where auditors will be validating the accuracy of the count. By preventing any changes to the Count in the Stock Count Entry window you can ensure that what was counted and recorded on the Tags matches what is posted to GP. Restart GP for this setting to take effect.
Use Tolerance Control
CompleteCount supports the use of Tolerance, or the amount of variance that is allowed between Captured Quantity and Counted Quantity. Tolerance can be set separately for each Item within each Site. When Tolerance Control is enabled, the Stock Tag Submission process will perform a check to ensure the count for each Item is within the Tolerance specified for that Item-Site, and if it is not, the Submission process will stop and report the error. This is described in more detail later in this document.
- Default Tolerance: There are multiple places to define the Tolerance (Item Class, Item, Site, and Item-Site). Default Tolerance simply provides the default value when creating a new record for any of these locations. The Item-Site Tolerance is the only value used during the Stock Tag Submission process.
- Tolerance Value: the label for this field will change depending on the Default Tolerance selection, but it is either a percentage, quantity or dollar value. This is a default that is used when creating new records.
Require starting Count before printing tags
If unmarked, you can print tags at any time for a cycle count. Using the module in this way allows you to prepare for conducting the physical count by printing and distributing tags before starting the count. A count must be Started to use Excel Link.
You can either choose to maintain unique tag numbers, in which case the system will never re-use a tag number, or to re-start numbering with each cycle count. With either option the system maintains a complete historical record of every tag printed and entered for a cycle count.
The system auto-numbers the tags, but you can choose how large the number should be. If you choose to re-use tag numbers, it will be easier to read and type a smaller number (such as 0001). If you choose to not re-use tag numbers, you should pick a large number of tag digits so that you do not run out of space.
Next Tag Number
When using pre-printed tags you will need to set the Next Tag Number to match the first number on the pre-printed tags.
User Defined Labels
Five user-defined text fields (30-characters each) are available for each Tag. The labels created here control which user-defined fields will be enabled on the User Defined Entry window. User-Defined fields move with the tags to history and become part of the permanent record of the stock count.
