In some situations, it might not be practical to use an iOS device or scanner peripheral to take the inventory count in an area and would prefer to use pen and paper. This could apply to either the whole area, or just certain items contained within it.

To help with this, you can generate and print an inventory sheet for any or all of your areas. You can take the count using pen and paper, and then input it later into the mobile app or WISK Web Portal.

There are two steps to generating an inventory sheet by area:

  1. Adding area tags to your items

  2. Generating the inventory sheet for the whole venue or specific areas

Items by Area Sheet

After either generating a PDF for either all areas or an individual one, you can print it off to take your next inventory count.
