Bin Quantity Adjustments


Overview

When miscounts occur or items are misplaced, it may be necessary to adjust the inventory count within your warehouse bins. If you find that there is a difference between what is recorded in the system and the actual bin quantity, you can easily make an adjustment to address the discrepancy. Such adjustments can be performed either individually or in bulk.

In this article, you will learn how to seamlessly adjust bin quantities for individual items using your handheld device or the Skustack Admin portal. To learn more about adjusting bin quantities for multiple SKUs simultaneously, refer to Import Warehouse Bin Info.
