6. When the upload is finished, you are prompted to clear the scanner memory. You can do so now, or wait until you have finished reviewing and saving the scans. But it is important that you clear the scanner before you start another inventory count with the scanner.

7.When you close the upload window, the scans are displayed for your review on the Get Scans window. The scans are not added to the Physical Inventory window until you select a save option at the bottom of this window. If any Unrecognized Scans are reported, review and print them before saving good scans to your physical inventory.
