Automated Data Capture System Setup in Dynamics NAV

i. Handheld Device User Setup in Dynamics NAV

Initially, the display on the handheld device provides a login screen for the user to enter a user name and password. 

These users are setup as Database Logins in NAV 2009 and earlier and in the ADCS Users screen in NAV 2013 and later. Here are screen shots of these two pages:

ii. The Main Menu on the Handheld Device

In addition to setting up the handheld users, you must specify the main menu that a given user will see on the handheld after they log in. This is done in the “ADCS Main Menu” column on the “Warehouse Employees” page. Here is a screen shot showing this page:

After authenticating, the handheld display shows a menu of functions such as “Pick Docs”, “Phys.-Inv. Jnls.”, “Logoff”, and so on. This menu of functions is defined in the Miniform page in Dynamics NAV. Here is an example of this Miniform page for the MAINMENU miniform:

iii. Setting Up a Basic Miniform in Dynamics NAV

After the user selects one of these menu options, they are then presented with a screen of information from NAV related to the selected function along with fields where they can type or scan in information to record in NAV.

Here is an example of the miniform associated with the “Pick Docs.” menu option from the previous screen shot:

iv. Setting Up Additional Information for a Miniform in Dynamics NAV

Once the user chooses a specific warehouse pick document, they then get a screen that shows them specific information about the action they are to take such as the “Item No.” that they need to pick and the “Bin Code” where they can find that item. Here is an example of a miniform that specifies this type of information:
