Inventory during scan

Reader Session shows all items discovered during a single scanning process while Inventory Session shows all items discovered during one inventory process (consisting of multiple Reader Sessions).




• Items that are set as expected on current inventory location are displayed in the Expected seen or Expected not seen field, depending on whether they were scanned or not.
