The Tracker's second order-entry screen, Fast add to cart, was designed for people who use the Tracker often and are familiar with their organization's item numbers and descriptions. Use the Fast add to cart screen for fast searches and high-volume order entry.
The Find and add to cart screen offers some features that aren't in Fast add to cart:
You can't change the fields in the Find and add to cart grid. If a field you want in a report or search isn't in Find and add to cart, use the Item assignments screen. Item assignments displays the same data as Find and add to cart but can be customized by users.
The Find and add to cart screen groups data. The default (Group by description then assignment displays descriptions at the top level. The number to the right of each description is the number of items with that description that match the current search.
In this example, we've clicked the plus sign to the left of 'compressor' to open the second, assignment level, then the plus sign to the left of 'Job: 1 job 1' to open the third, item level.
To change the grouping, clickthe Tools icon in the grid menu then Grouping (if you're on a computer).
Grouping options are listed at the top (including No grouping). If a grouping option is on, Collapse all closes all opened groups and Expand all opens all closed groups.
Group by assignment then description puts assignments at the top level.

Reports run form the Find and add to cart screen include commonly-requested data, for example, a list of items at a job. Like most Tracker reports, they include the fields that are displayed on-screen and, if a search is active, just the results of that search. Unlike momst Tracker reports, they can't be modified by users. If a field you want in a report or search isn't in the Find and add to cart screen, use the Item assignments screen, which displays the same data as Find and add to cart and can be customized.
Find and add to cart reports appear with expanded groups, whether or not those groups have been expanded on-screen, and are sorted, if the data is grouped, ascending by the first then the second, third and (if used) fourth levels, regardless of the on-screen sort (if the data isn't grouped, the report is sorted as it is on-screen).
The photos that appear in the Find and add to cart screen are entered in the Descriptions screen.
