Mixed license plate receiving allows you to build a license plate consisting of multiple items before you register and create put-away work.
A license plate that consists of multiple items does not have to be split at the receiving dock for you to register each item.
When using an item-related flow to identify the source document lines, you can scan bar codes on the item control. If the bar code has a quantity and a unit of measure (UOM) configured on it, the item and quantity will automatically be added to the mixed license plate, and you will be returned to the screen to scan another item. This allows you to quickly scan all the items without having to make a confirmation at each step.
In the flow for mixed license plate receiving, you can display the list of items that are already scanned to the license plate and from here you can modify or correct the quantity of an item.
