Typical Errors and Warning at the login screen

  • It will not possible to log in if the user is not member of the ‘Warehouse / User’ group.

Typical Errors and Warning at the scanner screen

  • ‘Incorrect quantity’ if the quantity entered is negative, or is not a float.
  • ‘Barcode not found in the picking’ if the operator tries to scan a product that is not in the list of move lines.
  • ‘Many operations found’ if there are many lines with the same products. In that case, the operator should select manually the line he want to treat.

Known issues / Roadmap

  • For the time being, this module doesn’t handle ‘Lot’, ‘Pack’ and ‘Owner’.
  • The UI doesn’t allow to add an unexpected product on the fly.
  • In practice, the mobile app emulate the actions of the user, changing Done quantity of stock moves of a given picking. This action is allowed by odoo under certain conditions, that are defined by the field is_quantity_done_editable of the stock.picking. Using this module if this field is unchecked could generate problems. This field is disabled (amoung others conditions) if user is member of stock.group_stock_multi_locations or stock.group_tracking_owner See the functions _compute_show_details_visible and _compute_is_quantity_done_editable for more detals.
  • Could be interesting to merge the two views list_move and main_scan into a single one module.
