How to Enter Issue Transactions

Issue transactions are created whenever you fulfill a request for items or use items from your inventory pool on a work order. The amount and cost of the items issued will subtract from your total on-hand quantity and cost of that item. If the items are used on a work order, those transactions will be added to the cost of the work order. You can issue items directly from InventoryDirect or, if you are also a user in MaintenanceDirect, you can create an issue from a work order.

Issuing from InventoryDirect

You can add up to five Issue transactions at a time using the Add/Update Issue form.

  • Click on the Issue tab at the top of the screen. You can also click on the Issues link in the Information & Analysis section of the home page.
  • On this page, you can enter up to five issue transactions at one time. The field headings in the teal bar at the top correspond to the entry fields in the columns below.
  • The Transaction Date will automatically populate with today's date.
  • Select the Inventory Type of the item from the drop down list.
  • Type the Item Number into the field or click on the binoculars icon to open a pop-up window where you can search for and select the item.
  • Select the Pool from the drop down list.
  • Enter the Quantity of the item you are issuing out.
  • The Unit of Issue, Unit Cost, and Total Cost will all fill in for you based on the information on the Inventory Item.
  • Enter a WOID if needed. This will automatically enter information into fields such as Assigned To, Location, and Building. You can also select that information manually. When you enter a WOID on the issue form, an issue transaction will automatically appear in the Transaction section of the work order in MaintenanceDirect.
  • Enter Notes if needed.
  • Click Save at the bottom of the page to save the transactions.
