Transfer to Oak Street High Density Storage


After staff sign in, the Transfer to Oak Street High Density Storage web application form takes in a location and an item barcode.  It checks the item to make sure it passes several criteria (being in an Oak Street location, properly formatted barcode, appropriate item type, appropriate item status, etc.)  If the criteria are met, it will display the transfer info on the screen. For units other than Central Management Services, it will also display a transfer slip for printing. If criteria are not met, it will display a summary of what caused the error. Both error and success states are logged in the Oak Street Transfer database.
