Introduction

This article goes over potential fixes for issues you might experience during inventory counts.

While we regularly update the WISK iOS app to reduce the risk of things going wrong, there’s always the chance something won’t work the way it should.

In the event of an issue, your inventory progress saves to the cloud as you go. If your device is in offline mode, your progress is saved to your device locally until it reconnects to a network.

Inventory Disappeared

In most cases, if the app crashes while taking an inventory count, just re-open the app and resume counting. All of your progress up until that point is saved.

However, if the app crashes while counting and your inventory disappears, it’s likely been archived by the system. In this case “disappears” means that when you reopen the app it displays “Start Inventory” instead of “Continue Inventory”.

Inventory Items Missing

If you have multiple devices taking an inventory count, and you notice some items that were counted are missing, check the following.

  1. Was one of the devices in offline mode or counting in an area with poor network reception? If so, make sure the device reconnects to the network to sync its data with the cloud. All offline inventory entries are saved locally on the device until it reconnects.

  2. Did the battery run out on a device during the count? If the device died while offline, when recharged, connect it to the network and reopen the WISK app to sync its data.

If you have synced an offline device and still notice items that are missing, reach out in the chat or email support@wisk.ai. Please provide as much information as you can about the conditions when taking the inventory to help our team investigate.
