Date Code Plugin

Jump to: navigation, search

The Date Code Plugin ensures that the system monitors Date codes for products within eoStar. Date codes can then be applied to products when purchased and when the products are brought into the warehouse.

There are two types of Date Codes Available. The first kind is a date code for when the product is created. The second type of date-code is a sell-by date, which is when the product needs to be sold by. Each product that requires a date code must be flagged on their subsequent Date Code panel.

The warehouse manager may use the warehouse handheld to add the date codes for the products added to the warehouse inventory. Additionally, date codes are added when the warehouse handheld is counting inventory and receiving purchases. To set the system so that date codes must be added during counts, check the checkbox Require Datecodes When Counting Warehouse on the File>Database Administration>Configure Handheld Panel.

Date codes can only be between January, 1990 and December 2029. This restriction was created to prevent errors such as "System.ApplicationException: 2/1/2606 12:00:00 AM is greater than the maximum Date2 value of 6/30/2098".
