Process batches are useful for keeping the history of bulk changes made to a specific group of inventory. If you're a single person operation, you may be fine with bulk editing straight from the Inventory Page. As your team grows, it can save time to have a recorded history of who made which bulk changes.
Some examples of why you'd use a process batch:
Changing the grade or damage conditions after physical repairs
Updating the status of a group of devices that have physically moved
Adding inventory line items
Adding bulk notes
First off, create a new Process Batch from the Process Batches page:
You can set a Description for a new Process Batch.
In this example, we'll be downgrading a group of AT&T iPhones.
Once saved, you can add inventory to the Process Batch by clicking on the blue +Add Inventory button:
Paste a list of ESNs or IDs of the group of devices you want to add into the pop-up window, then hit Next:
You get this confirmation window where you find the Save button.
Once you've added devices, you can make bulk changes from the Bulk Action menu:
In this example, we're changing these items from A Grade to B Grade.
Any changes you make will be recorded on the process batch itself:
And on the individual devices themselves:
That's it! You just made a Process Batch and edited a group of devices.
