Fulfilling Multiple Orders with Acctivate Mobile Pick List Picking

Full training library

With the use of pick lists, bin locations, and Acctivate Mobile, warehouse personnel are shown an efficient route for picking multiple sales orders to quickly move through the fulfillment process. Once the pick list is created on the desktop app, users can select one to pick however many orders are included.  After selecting a pick list on the mobile device, the workflow status of the sales order updates to Pick in Progress.

Prior to use, make sure to review the mobile order picking options prior to using this functionality. It is also recommended to create separate Acctivate users for warehouse employees as the system locks picking down per user.

The instructions below combine the use of Android and Windows mobile devices. If any differences exist, they are notated within the step. For customers not utilizing pick list, check out the Sales Order Picking with Acctivate Mobile training page.

Mobile Pick List Details
  1. To start picking, select the first product or scan the item barcode.
    • Standard control products which do not require a lot/serial number will show the pre-selected location, as well as the default pickedqty (0 or scheduled qty from order depending on mobile picking options). When using a product barcode, the quantity goes up by one for each scan. Alternatively, you can also manually enter the picked qty.

    • To pick a lot or serial control product:
      • If the barcode you are scanning is a GS1-128 barcode encoded with the Product ID and Lot/Serial number, you can perform a single scan on this screen, which will add the lot and increment the picked quantity by one. Continue scanning or update the picked quantity on screen until full picked qty listed.
