Troubleshooting Inventory Counts on iPad


Latest update: - Admin

If you run into errors processing inventory counts on your iPad, there are three main steps you can try to get your inventory counts working on your iPad:

1. Make sure you are using Safari and not Chrome. While Vend's Inventory Count feature works on Chrome for Mac and PC, it does not work for Chrome on iPad. If you are using an iPad, you must make sure you are using the Safari browser to process Inventory Counts.

2. Make sure you are not in Private Browsing Mode. On iPad, Safari has an option to run in Private Browsing Mode. If you are in Private Browsing Mode the top bar in Safari will be dark grey. Follow the steps below to deactivate Private Browsing Mode on Safari.

  • To deactivate Private Browsing Mode click the two squares in the top right-hand corner of Safari.

  • Here you will see that Private is highlighted. Tap this to turn off Private Browsing Mode.

  • Your Safari top bar should now be white instead of dark grey.

3. If either of the two main steps above were not applicable, try to clear website data for Vend. Sometimes, old Vend data in Safari may result in the Inventory Count getting stuck. To make sure you don't have any old Vend data in Safari, follow the steps below:

  • Head to the Settings on your iPad.

  • Scroll down the side menu and tap Safari.

  • In the Safari options, find the Advanced tab (this should be right at the bottom.)

  • Tap the Advanced tab and then tap Website Data.

  • You should now see a list of websites. Tap Edit in the top right of the screen and find vendhq.com from the list below.

  • Tap the red circle next to vendhq.com. Next, tap Delete.

Your website data for Vend will now be cleared. To check that the problem is fixed, log back into Vend on Safari again using the steps at the beginning of this article.
