Item entry and Keypad Help

Starting at the top left, you see that you have three horizontal lines a.k.a. hamburger. When tapped, it displays the menu.
Each of the menu options will take you to another Retail Inventory App screen.

Next you see Area and Section. As you conduct an inventory it is easy to track locations that you have inventoried. Later if you need to double check or show a report, the Area and Section will help you identify the specific location.
The area and section are buttons that get enabled when you have typed four digits on the input field.
There are three ways to change the area/section.
You can type four digits then tap the area/section.
You can type a number with 4 or less digits then tap ^ or @ then when Enter is tapped, it will change area or section respectively.
Scan a barcode that has XXXX^ or XXXX@ and it will automatically update area or section.
For example, typing 0001 then the Section button will change to section 0001.
typing 1@ then tapping Enter will change section to 0001.

There are four labels that turn green or red depending if the piece of data they represent is accepted or not.
Next you have the text field that accepts the different pieces of data for the inventory.
To the left you have a label that indicates the principal piece of data that is expecting.
Below the input field you will either see the item description or "item was not found".
Besides the visual indicators, there are beeps that alert you of something that is not expected. i.e. The item is not in the item master.

The next section is the keypad. Retail Inventory App has been designed to work with an external Bluetooth barcode scanner.
Having said that, you can also attach a USB hardware keypad or Bluetooth keypad and it will work as expected.
Most keys/buttons are self explained. The buttons will enable/disable depending if you can tap them or not
