In Receive mode, you can select the product you wish to receive and commit it into the warehouse.
An example of receiving product
If you find you've received a different amount of product to what was expected, you can expand the arrow and expose more information about the product you are receiving.
For example, if half of the product arrived you could receive half of it now, and then receive the balance when the rest arrived.
You can also over-receive and under-receive product, if the items coming in don't match the expected amounts.
The following screenshot illustrates expected metrics but allows you to enter what was actually received.

Receive Products Confirmation
Receiving the products will raise a dialog asking you to confirm the date and time the products can be received. These values default to now, however you can change these which is useful if you are backdating receive events.
Shortcut buttons to set the date to today or yesterday are available. The date/time entered is based on the time zone set in your user profile.

Completing the consignment
When the consignment is completed, any product that is under-received will create a transaction in a void state. This illustrates that the balance of the expected amount wasn't received.
Any product that is over-received will be committed into the warehouse.
A consignment's metrics will be updated to manual values based on the amount of product that was actually received into the warehouse. Metrics affect the charges raised on the consignment, so it is important these reflect the actual values.
