When running the Device Functions Page, you will be able to view all the available Functions which are possible to use on a Device.  There are two types of functions available to use.  These are:

Transaction - Transaction Type Functions allow Users to be able to Process and Post Transactions back to Business Central.

Enquiry - Enquiry Type Functions are designed to show the User information based on the criteria they populate on the Device.

 

By selecting a Function, you will be able to view how the Function is comprised by clicking the Edit Button.

 

The General FastTab provides a breakdown of the Function.

Name

This Field is editable allowing you to change the caption of the Function to be more relatable to Users who see that Function on the Device. 

Type

This simply displays whether the Function is simply a transaction one or an Enquiry. If its set as an Enquiry, then the Enquiry Code field would be populated as well.

Implementation

This Field can implement a mechanism for replacing the standard Device Function in its  entirety.  This would require a Developer to implement Code changes.

Auto-Post

When this Field is Enabled, it will simply post the transaction once all the data in the Function has been captured. 

If this Field is not Enabled, then the Post Button will appear on the Device requiring the User to click it in order for the transaction to be processed.

Override System Barcode Processor

f you have Enabled this Field, then you will be able to set the value in the Barcode Processor Field.

If you are using a non-standard Barcode i.e. using non-standard encodings outside of GS1, then a custom barcode processor will be required.  This would require a Developer to complete this work so please speak to your Business Central Partner.

Barcode Processor

This Field works in conjunction with the Override System Barcode Processor Field and is used to define which Barcode Processor you would like to use with that Enquiry.

By default this will always be set to On Device.  Please refer to this Page for more information.  Clever Dynamics - On-Server Barcode Processing

Data Item - This option controls what Fields you want to show on a Device.

Caption

Here you can change the caption shown for the Data Items where required to make them more relatable to the Users who see them on the Device.

Display Order

This Field is non-editable and is used to record what order the Data Items will be displayed in on the Device.  The values will be updated if you use the Move Up or Move Down options to change the order the Fields are displayed.

Importance

There are three options to select from in this Field, they are:

By default, all fields are set to Standard, showing them all on the Device.  Any text which is too long and can’t all fit on one line will be truncated when this setting is selected.

If you choose for the Data Item to be Promoted, the caption and text on the Device will appear in red to make it more visible. The text will also be wrapped, so if for example your item description doesn’t fit on one line on the device screen it will drop to a second line.

If you select Additional for any of the Data Items, then a small arrow will appear at the top of the Page, when pressed any fields classed as additional will appear on the Device to the User.  By default, these fields of data would be hidden.
