Hi all ,

Does your customer require for no-keyboard entering or no mouse cursor actions using Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) ?

In warehouse operations workers could prefer only to "scan" barcodes , and I am pretty sure they don't have mouse to click with them inside warehouse.

Today I will introduce  "Access codes"  to use in Fiori Pack Outbound Deliveries app in Extended Warehouse Management.

Hope this helps you to meet customer requirement.

By the way probably you already know  Pack Outbound Deliveries app which can improve customer satisfaction in the following ways:
• Improves packing efficiency
• Reduces human errors
• Reduces the cost of warehouse operations

but after Access code configuration user can just scan "PACK_ALL" in the Product/Access Code field and it will trigger the same action as touch or clicking "Pack all button"
