You can access the License Plates application from the Home screen by clicking the “License Plate” link.

When launched the License Plate Lookup List page will be displayed.

License Plate Lookup List

The Lookup List page allows you to either scan or select the License Plate you wish to view.

License Plating
Configuration: The maximum number of Documents that appear in this list is configured in the Warehouse Insight Setup page in NAV via the “Document Max List” property (defaults initially to 100).

Use the filter bar to filter the lookup list to specific License Plates if required.

Extensibility: To further enhance or change the Lookup List logic you will need to override event: “LICENSE PLATE::GetDocumentList” (ID: 95007) to implement the required logic.

No. This is the License Plate number.

Adding Items

To add Items to the License Plate the following process should be followed:

  • Scan the Item to add
  • Enter the quantity and Item Tracking Information (if required)

The Scan Behaviors page in NAV can also be further configured to control aspects of this process as well. For instance, it is possible to configure it such that a quantity dialog does not ever appear but instead increments the count by one, or to change the default quantity or unit of measure.

For more information about the Scan Behaviors consult the NAV Help.

Note: A License Plate cannot have Items added, modified or removed when it is assigned to document.


The following menus are available by default for License Plating. Menus may be added or removed as required from the Device Menus page in NAV under the “Application” Form with a selection of “LP_DOC” for the Application.

Close (Menu)

Closes the License Plate document and brings the user back to the Lookup List page.

Change Quantity (Menu)

Print (Menu)

By default, the reports must be built with a top level DataItem of the type of document being printed. Example: Report “WMDM License Plate Label” (ID: 23044512).
