Warning of dubious item movements

IMMS has a function that can warn the user of a mobile client if he/she is about to make an item relocation that IMMS can see is possibly inappropriate.

The purpose of the function is to prevent the user from making such inappropriate item relocations. There may be situations in which the user is about to make an error or there may, e.g., be a situation where earlier in the process a disagreement emerged between what is physically present in a transport unit and what IMMS believes is present in the transport unit.

If the function is enabled, it is centrally controlled by the “Warning when making questionable item movements with the mobile” parameter, but it can also be turned on/off directly on the mobile client.

When the function is enabled, during each item relocation the mobile client will query the server to check (based on the scans) if there are any concerns with respect to carrying out the relocation. In the event there is, the user will be warned before the relocation is carried out. In most cases, the user can choose to ignore the warning and carry out the relocation anyway. However, there are certain logical errors that may result in the mobile client not giving the user the option to carry out the relocation.

In many cases, it may be necessary to use the mobile client's “What does IMMS say about...” function to obtain complete details about the item/transport unit/location and consequently obtain enough information to be able to decide how any issue should be addressed.

Please note: The function carries out the calculations based on the data available on the server at the time of the query. Registrations that have not yet been delivered from a mobile client or that have yet to be processed on the server are not included in the calculations. It may therefore make sense to register the contents of a moved transport unit even though the function is warning about the fact that the transport unit is empty.
