What does the Berth screen / Unit screen / Vault screen look like?

Unit Listing

  • Berth listing / Vault listing / Unit listing shows the Berth / Unit / Vault number, Type code, Description, Size (length by width), Door size (width by height), current Status and Customer the Berth / Unit / Vault is rented or reserved to (if any). Double-clicking on a Berth / Unit / Vault will open the modification screen.
  • Berths this datafile is licensed for / Units this datafile is licensed for / Vaults this datafile is licensed for shows the number of Berths / Units / Vaults that this datafile is licensed for. You can also view this and other licensing information in System Setup under the License tab (more on this tab: #SYSSETTAB1201).
  • Current total number of Berths / Current total number of Units / Current total number of Vaults shows the current total number of Berths / Units / Vaults you have entered into your system. The difference between this and the abovementioned field would obviously be the quantity of additional Berths / Units / Vaults you can add under the current license.
  • Filter this data allows you to filter the data to show All Berths / Units / Vaults, Occupied Berths / Units / Vaults or Vacant Berths / Units / Vaults.
  • Add... allows you to add a new Berth / Unit / Vault to the system.
  • Multiply... allows you to add multiple Berths / Units / Vaults based on the specifications of the one you have highlighted in the Berths / Units / Vaults listing in the main part of the screen. More on multiplying: #UNTMLTP01.
  • Find... allows you to find a Berth / Unit / Vault by name or number.
  • Import... allows you to import Berths / Units / Vaults into the system using a template. Please contact StorMan Support if you intend to use this feature, and we can supply you with Microsoft Excel templates.
  • Print list of... prints a list of all your Berths / Units / Vaults and their relevant specifications. When printing this report, you can select to sort the report by Berth / Unit / Vault number, or type.
  • Done will close the window and return to the previous screen.
