    Alma: Barcode action on receiving continuous items is confusing

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Alma

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    In the "Receive new items" screen I keep getting a message "The item does not have a barcode. Are you sure you want to perform this action?"
    How can I get rid of this message?

    You can get rid of the confirmation message by doing the following:
    1. Go to the Acquisitions Configuration Menu.
    2. Select "Receiving Department Validations".
    3. Set the check "Check if item has a barcode" to No.
    4. Click "Save".
    The message won't be displayed to you anymore.

    Additional Information

    Note that even when "Check if item has a barcode" is set to "Yes", you will see the warning message only if you set "Keep in department" to "No".
