There are two ways to add a new inventory in the seventhings Inventory Manager:

  • You can either create it via the web application (we show you how to do this here),

  • or directly in the app during your inventory process.

Attention:

To be able to create inventories without a scan code, you must ensure that the scancode field is not a mandatory field. To do this, navigate to "Customise inventory fields", search for the Scancode field and deactivate the mandatory field button.

And this is how it works:

  • Open the app and log in.

  • Click on "Create objects"

OR

  • Navigate to the asset list over the navigation bar.

  • Click on "+"-Icon to create a new asset.

Now you can simply ignore the scan code field and enter all information. Then click on save to create your new asset.

There are two options for taking up a new object in the seventhings inventory manager:

  1. You can either create it via the web application (we show you how it works here),

  2. or you can assign a new label with a new scan code directly during your inventory and scan it with the app.

If you don't have a new label yet, the search function will help you.


And this is how it works:

  • Open the app and log in

  • Tap the search field at the bottom of the screen

iOS:

Android:

  • Give the new object a new scancode

  • Enter all properties that you want to assign to the object

Important:

Note that you have to assign all required fields (here it's the description) to the object before you can save.

  • When you're done, tap Save
