Import Instructions for Receipt Item Data
This tab includes instructions you should follow to successfully upload your receipt item data into SmartTurn. Uploading your receipt item data
provides flexibility and saves time because you can complete the receipt items spreadsheet outside of SmartTurn, and then enter up to 500
items at once, where they are incorporated into the receipt. For instance, after you make a successful receipt item upload, you can make one
click to receive all of the items into inventory. With one upload, you are communicating data across various modules within SmartTurn.

Please read these instructions prior to upload so that you can gain an understanding of what is required during the upload process, namely the
following key concepts:
► Reference data - Please make sure you have set up your Warehouse(s), Locations, Item Masters, and License Numbers within SmartTurn
before uploading receipt items
► One Upload per Receipt
► Import receipt items only on new blind receipts
► Formatting constraints on the data spreadsheet
► Formatting constraints on the worksheet tab name
► Filtering interferes with the upload

Our instructions take you step by step through the process of copying your existing data in a way that SmartTurn can read it. We also provide
the following resources that you will need:
► A reference table for the data field definitions used in the worksheet
► Tips and suggestions for a successful upload




---------Basic Concepts to know before uploading your data to SmartTurn--------
SmartTurn wants to make it easy for you to transport and maintain your data between your accounting application and SmartTurn WMS.
Before starting, there are six basic concepts to keep in mind:

► REFERENCE DATA - Some data fields in SmartTurn rely                 Mass Upload Sequence:
on other data fields in SmartTurn in order to make sense.             *1st: Business Affiliates (Customers, Vendors, etc.); Warehouse(s)
For instance, if you import a receipt item with a putaway location    2nd: Locations
that hasn't been set up at a Warehouse in SmartTurn, the import       3rd: Item Masters
will fail. So the concepts to remember are that when you're           4th: License Numbers
importing data to SmartTurn, you'll need to follow a certain          5th: Receipt Items/Shipment Items
sequence. (See Mass Upload Sequence to the right), and you'll
need to type data to match exactly the data that already exists       *you can upload these first three in any order, but all three must be
in SmartTurn.                                                         uploaded before you can proceed to uploading Locations.


► ONE UPLOAD PER (BLIND) RECEIPT - You can import                     How to get to the Add Blind Receipt screen in SmartTurn:

                                                                      2. In the toolbar for the PO list, select    Add Blind Receipt. The Add Blind

► IMPORT ONLY ON NEW BLIND RECEIPTS - You can                         For instance, if you open up a Purchase order from the list at
import receipt items to only to receipts that don't already contain   Receiving>Receive Purchase Orders, you do not see the Import icon on the

when you are receiving from a PO. You must create a new blind
receipt for every receipt item import.


                                                                      page 2 of 7
    f2c8b194-e265-4307-938e-127d2bd5adf3.xls                                                                                                    Instructions

► SPREADSHEET FORMATTING CONSTRAINTS - Names of                         For example: "Expiration date" would not work as a column header for
Columns in the workheets directly correspond to data fields             the data field, "Expire date". There must be an exact match.
in SmartTurn. This means that column headers in SmartTurn's
data upload worksheets specify where to put the data you supply
within SmartTurn. If you inadvertently change the column
headers, the upload won't work because the column header no
longer corresponds to a specific data field in SmartTurn.
Similarly, if you add column headers that SmartTurn hasn't
specified, the data will not correspond to anything in SmartTurn,
and the upload will not be successful. (See example to the right.)




CUSTOMIZE THE FILENAME, NOT THE WORKSHEET                               For example: if you rename the SmartTurn Worksheet from
NAME: SmartTurn looks for a specific worksheet name                     'ReceiptItemsData' to 'Receipt#122' and try to upload it, the upload will

the file you import is important; it must match the name of the         according to which receipt they're for:

Note that while you shouldn't change the worksheet name within
the SmartTurn upload template, you can name the .xls file
whatever you want.



TURN OFF FILTERS: Filtering interferes with the SmartTurn               For example: you may like to review your receipt item data by filtering it

-------Steps to Complete the ReceiptItemsData Worksheet---------
What to Expect: Depending on the number of receipt items, detail needed, and condition of your existing receipt item data, SmartTurn expects
this process to take anywhere from 5 minutes to 2 hours. The process involves extracting data from the system you are currently using to track
receipt items, re-arranging a copy of this data to conform to the SmartTurn import system, and importing.




1. Check to make sure you have your locations, item masters, and licenses set up in SmartTurn. Log in to SmartTurn.
a. Go to Administration>Locations. Review the list of Locations there to see that it contains the putaway locations you will specify in the import
for receipt items. (If you have a multi-warehouse operation, make sure you are looking at the locations for the correct warehouse by checking
the selection in the Warehouse selector up top.) You can also review the Location status and Capacity status to verify if there is space available
in the desired putaway location(s). (Double-click a location and then select the Capacity tab to see its capacity specification in eaches.)

b. Go to Administration>Item Masters. Review the list of item masters there to see that it contains the Item #s of the receipt items you will be
importing. You can also double-click on any item master to review the Receiving unit you have specified, and other details.

c. Go to Inventory>License Numbers. Review the list of license numbers there to see that it contains any License #s you intend to assign to
receipt items included in the import file. Double-click a license number to make sure it is not on hold.


2. Obtain an electronic version of your existing data. Make a copy of an existing spreadsheet of your receipt item data. (It might be
helpful to print this out so you can clearly see the names of the columns your existing spreadsheet uses.) Many accounting packages have an
export feature to facilitate this process.

If you do not have your data in electronic format, you may elect to use this spreadsheet for data entry.



3. Open the import template. Look at the ReceiptItemsData tab in this file. (It might also be helpful for you to print this out so you can
clearly see the names of the columns SmartTurn uses.)

                                                                        page 3 of 7
    f2c8b194-e265-4307-938e-127d2bd5adf3.xls                                                                                              Instructions

                                                                      Tip: The column headers contain information. Click column header
                                                                      cell in the ReceiptItemsData worksheet to see important information
                                                                      about values for the field, whether the filed is required or optional, etc.




4. Complete the SmartTurn Import Spreadsheet. For each column header in the SmartTurn ReceiptItemsData tab, match a column
header in the existing spreadsheet containing your receipt items data. Notice that the column headers are different colors. The fields that
correspond to the column headers are either optional or required. Click into the cell to see more information in a pop-up:
►Required fields are denoted by Red column headers. These fields must be completed for a successful upload.
►Optional fields are denoted by Black column headers. You may leave these fields blank, but leaving them blank enters the default state for
this field. Click into the column header for more information on the default state for that column.

b. Go to Receiving>Receive Purchase Orders in the navigation panel. A list of POs appears.
c. In the toolbar for the PO list, select    Add Blind Receipt. The Add Blind Receipt screen appears. At the bottom of the screen is a blank
Receipt items list.
d. In the toolbar for the Receipt items list, select    Import. Follow the prompts to browse for the file and complete the import.

                                               hold the Received qty. However, if you leave it blank, the import template
                                               will automatically consult with the item's item master and look for a
                                               default putaway location. If one is configured for the item, SmartTurn
                                               enters that location. You can change this before you make the final click

                                               The column name must match exactly the name of the custom field you
                                               have already defined in SmartTurn. For each receipt item, enter the value
                                               for the custom field. The value must be a valid value for that custom field.
                                               For example, if your custom field is a list type custom field, the value you
                                               enter must match exactly one of the list options you defined when you
                                               created your custom field.

                                               If you do not add a column for a custom field, its value on the receipt
                                               item is based on the Business Process Details you defined when you
                                               created your custom field.
                                               If you do add a column for a custom field, the value you enter overrides
                                               any default set up in the Business Process Details.

                                               If you are importing custom field information, you may need to
                                               "unprotect" the ReceiptItemsData worksheet in order to add the custom
                                               field columns. To "unprotect" the worksheet, select
                                               Tools>Protection>Unprotect Sheet (Excel 2003) or
                                               Review>Changes>Unprotect Sheet (Excel 2007).
                                               (Custom fields are available in the Edit pop-up on the Custom tab, or if
                                               you customize the Create Receipt page.)

-------Tips for a Successful Receipt Item Data Import to SmartTurn---------
► Turn off filters: If you use filters in your spreadsheet to review data, please disable them in the SmartTurn ReceiptItemsData worksheet
before you import to SmartTurn.

► Deactivate Sorting: If you use sorting in your spreadsheet to review data, please disable it in the SmartTurn ReceiptItemsData worksheet
before you import to SmartTurn.

► Freeze Panes: When you review the data you paste into the SmartTurn ReceiptItemsData worksheet, you can use the default Freeze
Panes formatting to examine your data. This tool will help you carefully review the data by showing each record in close proximity to the
column headers and required record information. If you are unfamiliar with Freeze Panes, see Microsoft Excel Help.



► Automate if possible: Consult your accounting software package to see if you can export data in the same format required by SmartTurn.

► Examine twice, Copy & Paste once: To borrow from an old carpenter's rule, make sure your data records are clean and correct before
pasting them into the SmartTurn ReceiptItemsData spreadsheet. This is crucial for handling the data in a way that will prevent overwrites and
losses.


► If an upload fails, SmartTurn provides specific error messages: In the event that your data import fails, the SmartTurn system provides
error messages that describe what records are causing the failure. If you have a large amount of records, there could be numerous errors.
SmartTurn provides specific errors messages, based on when in the sequence they occurred. If you correct the errors, and then subsequent
imports fail, you can refer to any new error messages to guide your next corrections.

► SmartTurn can import up to 500 records with this template: Please limit each import to 500 records.


► SmartTurn prevents you from Adding or Deleting rows and columns in the template: SmartTurn has protected the import template
against adding or deleting rows. Paste additional rows at the bottom of the data instead of adding rows. Instead of deleting rows with incorrect
data, fix the data.
