The Sales History stores sales created in Mobileezy. From the Sales History screen, you can view a list of all sales stored on the handheld, locate specific sales by using the sort and filter features, and open sales records in the Invoice screen. All sales created in Mobileezy on the handheld are temporarily stored in Sales History before being transferred to the Desktop Administrator and your accounting software. By specifying an archive period—such as one week, or one month—in the handheld preferences, you can retain an archive of sales transferred to the desktop. You can also restore these archived sales to the handheld by using the repopulation feature.

All sales with a status of ‘WIP’—work in progress—are retained in Sales History regardless of the specified archive period.

Historical sales transactions will be stored on the handheld dependent upon the archive period set on that handheld.
