ID Request by Item Number
I certainly understand your frustration, but there might be a solution that works for you and your inventory requesters. When they go to submit a request, the default is to sort by the 'Item Description,' and the Search Box is by 'Item Decsription' as well. However, the requester can toggle the radio button from Item Description to 'Item Number' and the page will refresh with 'Item Number' in the Filtering box next to the Search Box. Maybe that will help your requesters find what they need more easily and you could utilize the MySchoolBuilding page for requests. Hope that helps fix the issue.
It would be extremely helpful if there were the ability to search for inventory by item number in InventoryDirect Requests.
Currently, our custodial department sends in paper requestions for supplies by cross referencing item numbers from a supply list sheet. We would love to utilize the Request Page, but this just doesn't seem feasible without being able to search by item numbers. Our inventory is too large to search by product descriptions.
