To change any of these tap and hold the item you wish to change for up to 1 second.
Scan the items by pressing Volume down on a phone to activate the camera or pressing the relevant Scan button on your scanning device.

Floor:  This scan allows you to scan all items on the floor of you depot.
Held Over:  This scan allows you to scan consignments(s)/items(s) that are being held for the next linehaul run.

Linehaul Manifests

Scan Manifest

To create a scan manifest, go to the scan page of the mobile app:

Open this page up:


Tap and hold the scan type to change to the type of scan you wish to apply.
You may also wish to add a scan tag at the top. Tap and hold to select from available scan tags.
Click here for instructions on Scan Tag setup if required.

Once you have the right scan type and scan tag, simply scan the freight needed. 
Once the scanning has been done click the 3 dots at the top-right and click create manifest:

It is usually a good idea to limit current user using the checkbox at the bottom and you can also specify to include scans from a certain time period as well if required. Click create to generate the manifest. The manifest then appears in the manifest page and you can print or export if required from within the manifest itself. 

Scan manifests can come in many different types depending on the scan type selected. 
You may want a record of connotes that come into depot at a certain point. If so, when depot scanning simply click create manifest after depot scanning has been completed.
Another useful type of manifest is a floor manifest. Floor manifests are generated by selecting floor scan as your scan type. 
Floor manifests are typically used to provide records of what is still on the depot floor at certain points throughout the day, which means selecting a scan tag when doing floor scans is a good idea because scan tags are essentially just comments as to why something was scanned the way it was.
