It is only necessary to add the main Movelets, not the "Core" movelets. e.g. add "Pick Sales Order" but not "Pick Sales Order (Core)".
Note: By default the 'All' assignment group will contain all devices and infrastructure movelets such as Login / Logout.


Step 5 - Add Devices

MOV System > Participants > Devices

Participants are Devices


A participant is tied to a single device. Therefore, if a person has two devices then two participant entries must be created for them. Alternatively, a participant may be available for use by several people without a specific owner.

A participant is identified by either phone number or email address, this means that there must be a unique phone number / email address for each device that a person has. However, dummy values can be used as it is possible to enter an alternative email address for the required registration email.

New devices will be automatically sent to Movilizer for registration. An email will be sent with login credentials.

Step 6 - Add Devices to Assignment Groups

MOV System > Participants > Assignment Groups > Devices

Once a device is create, it will need to be added to a group.

Step 7 - Initialize Masterdata

MOV System > Install > Initialize Masterdata

All Masterdata needs to be initialised by sending current data to each device.
