Weighing With ScaleQ | Transactions Overview

April 24, 2019

Transactions that occur are based on the difference between the inbound and outbound weights of a truck. 

These can be cash, credit card or billing transactions. How the transactions are calculated is based on the business rules that have been built into the system. Depending on permissions, the operator may be able to override the rules for a transaction. Also based on permissions, the operator may be able to edit the default information for a customer, job, catalog, tax code, freight code, message or material. 

Data entry during weigh-in.

When a truck mounts the scale and the operator enters the trucks's code, stored data is automatically entered. This data may come from defaults that have been set or from the truck's previous activity in the yard. How this is handled is set in the site options. For example, in the screenshot above, the freight code is coming from the customer record, and the material code is coming from the previous visit. The total charge based on incoming weight will be automatically corrected at weigh-out. 

Below is a screenshot of the browse list that is opened when the material field is double clicked.

Field entries can be edited by double clicking in the field or by right clicking and selecting add/edit from the pop-up menu. Double clicking the field will open the browse list for making a selection. Right clicking will open the record/sub-records for editing, which is the same as if the operator modified the record in files. A new truck can be added during the weigh-in by right clicking in the empty truck code field and selecting add. The operator will be presented with a blank truck record dialog to fill in.

During weigh-out, the process is the same. The editable fields are still available for the operator to modify, if needed. In the example above, the material changed from regular topsoil to pulverized topsoil and the total charge was automatically recalculated. 

Options for completing the transaction. 

The operator clicks the finish button to complete the weigh-out, saving the transaction and printing a ticket. The number of copies of a ticket can be changed by selecting the caret to the right of the history. The default is one; as many as ten can be printed. Only the active ticket is affected. 

Alternatively, the operator can press the enter key to save the transaction and print a ticket. The operator can also click on the print button in the record toolbar to save the transaction and print a ticket. Also, the operator can click the save button in the record toolbar to save the transaction without printing a ticket.Alternatively, the operator can click the hold button in the record toolbar to hold the ticket in the yard.
