When setup as described in Setting up Container Tracking, Mobileezy will trigger the handheld user to record a container return whilst completing a sale on the handheld for any item that has been configured under the Container Management tab. It will also automatically complete a stock adjustment of the container item from the users' logged on location to the customer location for the quantity of content item sold. This topic will provide you with instructions on how to use container tracking on the handheld.
A container return will be triggered on the handheld whenever a sale is made for one of the content items setup in Container Management.
