The Warehouse Widget

Let’s now talk about the main functionality within Dock C2 from the warehouse perspective.

  • Click on the Warehouse Widget on the Dashboard.
  • Once inside of the widget, operators will see a screen called the Load Board. This is the main screen that most warehouse managers, site supervisors, stagers, QC personnel, and Loaders will use on a daily basis. See below for descriptions of the page’s features.
  • The Load Board is the main screen that most warehouse managers, site supervisors, stagers, QC personnel, and Loaders will use on a daily basis to make/view loads and adjust statuses.
  • An Active Load is any load that has been created. Active loads will show up chronologically in the load board.
  • The Stage Filter allows each user to click on their job title. Operators can easily search for loads that pertain only to Stagers, Quality Control Specialists, Loaders, or any combination of those three.
  • The Dock Location Filter allows each user quickly search for loads that pertain only to specific loading docks or locations. All loading dock locations will appear in the options for this filter across the top of the screen, and a user may select to look at any combination of the locations.
    • For Example: in the above picture, if the user is a Stager and wants to see any loads at the Cleveland – Billet and Cleveland – SBQ Dock locations, then he/she should:
      • Select Stager
      • Select Cleveland – Billet
      • Select Cleveland – SBQ
    • It is important to note that users must deselect any filter they do not want to use. Simply selecting another filter will not turn off the previous filter.
  • The Configurable Load Board Headers are the column headers that display every piece of information about the loads inside the load board. These headers are able to be moved left or right and dropped anywhere like columns in spreadsheets. This allows users to ability to customize their Load Boards to a view that is most useful to them.
  • The Export to Spreadsheet Button allows users to convert their load boards to a spreadsheet and export the data to a local file.
  • The Number of Items Listed Per Page icon displays how many loads are listed on a single screen view. These are customizable from 10 up to 50 on a single page.
  • The Next/Previous Page Buttons allow users to switch from page to page if there are above 50 loads inside the load board.
  •  
  • The load board displays all loads associated with the current organization in chronological order.
