  3. Choose the appropriate snapshot type, and then hit Generate New Snapshot at the bottom.
    - Complete Snapshot will assume that you're counting everything.
    Anything not counted is set to 0
    - Selective Snapshot is similar to a Complete Snapshot, but lets you query the product you are counting.
    Anything not counted is set to 0
    - Spot Snapshot (Recommended) will only make changes to the products counted. 

  4. It will pop up with a box saying it generated a number of items, just hit OK here

  6. Make sure your batch is selected, and then choose the Scanner/File button at the bottom

  7. Select Load List From File, and look for your CSV file you made earlier

  8. Change the quantity of the first item from 1 to 0 by checking the Quick Edit checkbox.
    Click on 1 in the Count Qty column, and change it from 1 to 0

  9. Double check to see if there are any issues with your import, by clicking on the ErrorMessage column twice

  10. If there are any, select the item, click on the Edit button, and scan in the correct code / set the quantity properly.
  11. Once it looks good, click on the View / Apply Results tab at the top, and Apply Variance in the bottom right.
