44 Product Price and Availability Mobile Applications

This chapter discusses these topics:

Important Note:

Before using the mobile applications, Oracle strongly recommends that users have a complete understanding of how to use the associated processes and applications in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne base software.

For additional information about the processes and applications associated with the mobile applications discussed in this chapter, see:

44.1 Product Price and Availability Mobile Applications Overview

You use the Product Price and Availability mobile applications to search for and review customer-specific price, item price, item detail and availability, and lot detail information.

You can use filters to search for item detail and availability based on item number and stocking type. You can also use filters to search for item price based on customer and branch/plant.

This table lists the applications that are available to review item price and availability information:

Type of Application Additional Information
Base EnterpriseOne application To review item and price information, use these applications in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system:
  • Item Master (P4101)

  • Item Availability (P41202)

  • Lot Master (P4108)

  • Base Price Revisions (P4106)

  • Check Price and Availability (P4074)

Tablet application Product Price and Availability (M41062)

To download the application to your tablet, search on the following text in the application store:

  • JD Edwards Price Availability

Smartphone application Product Price and Availability (M41063)

To download the application to your device, search on the following text in the application store:

  • JD Edwards Price Availability


Before using the Product Price and Availability tablet or smartphone application, set the processing options for the Product Price and Availability mobile tablet application (M41062) and the Product Price and Availability smartphone application (M41063). You set the processing options to specify the versions that the mobile application uses to process data related to item price, item detail and availability, and item lot details.

44.1.1 Differences and Limitations: Product Price and Availability

Mobile applications are intended to be a simplified version of the applications that are available in the base software. In most cases, these applications provide a subset of the functionality available in the base software.

Barcode Scanning (Release 9.2 Update)

This application is designed to scan data from a barcode and populate the item number in the Item Number field. To scan barcode data, you can use the native camera on your device or a third-party handheld bluetooth-enabled scanning device. To use this functionality, you must create barcodes that represent a single field in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system. This application does not accept barcodes that consist of data for multiple fields.

You can generate barcodes using services such as those offered by Barcodes Inc.

Note:

Oracle is not affiliated with Barcodes, Inc. and does not require or recommend that you use this service to create your barcodes.

To use the camera device to scan barcodes, you must disable the Bluetooth option on your mobile device settings.

To use a third-party scanning device, you must enable the Bluetooth option on your mobile device settings. You must configure the third-party scanning device to connect to your mobile device. The third-party vendor provides instructions to configure the connection to your device.

Language Support

You should be aware of how a user's language preference can affect the search functionality for business unit and branch/plant records. See Chapter 1, "Language Support for Business Unit and Branch Plant Searches"

44.2 Setting Up the Product Price and Availability Mobile Applications

Before using the Product Price and Availability mobile applications (M41062 and M41063), you must verify the processing options set up for each application. The processing options for both the tablet and the smartphone applications specify the versions of the base JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications that the mobile applications use.

The system administrator must set the processing options for these mobile applications before the applications are made available to end users.

See "Setting Processing Options for Item Master (P4101)" in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Applications Inventory Management Implementation Guide.

See "Setting Processing Options for Item Branch Plant (P41026)" in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Applications Inventory Management Implementation Guide.

See "Setting Processing Options for Item Availability (P41202)" in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Applications Inventory Management Implementation Guide.

See "Setting Processing Options for Lot Master (P4108)" in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Applications Inventory Management Implementation Guide.
