Symbion Daily MNPN Updates will add new product information and update existing product information, e.g. alternate barcodes and PDEs. This update will not change your retail pricing or current unit costs.

This is not the Symbion Wholesaler update

It is recommended that you set up automatic updates for Symbion Daily updates to ensure that you have the most recent product information available. If you continue to run manual Symbion Daily updates we recommend these are run at least twice a week.

To run manual Symbion Daily updates

1. From the Supplier MNPN Update window, select Symbion Pty Ltd (06080).

2. Select Change to review the Update Options that will be applied as part of the update.

3. Apply any changes and click OK to save.

4. Select Symbion Pty Ltd and click Apply Update.

The Symbion Daily file will be imported.

5. Once imported, the details of the last import are displayed in the last run information box in the Supplier MNPN Update Configuration window.


Supplier MNPN Update Options


Import Alternate Barcodes

Selecting the Import Alternate Barcodes checkbox will import any additional barcodes which are not already attached to the product in Product Maintenance.

It is recommended that this checkbox is always selected.

Update Minfos Departments

Selecting Update Minfos Departments will import Minfos created Departments into the Category field of each product in the stores database.

Importing Minfos Departments is not recommended.

Update Product Names

Selecting Update Product Names will import Minfos Master Database product descriptions to the store product descriptions. Selecting this option will alter any changes that the store has made manually to a product when collecting the MNPN update for that supplier.

It is recommended that this checkbox is always selected, unless you are live with The Hub.

Update Items in Pack

Selecting the Update Items in Pack checkbox will update the items in pack for non-drug products where the supplier provides this information. This is beneficial for DoseAid & Meditec stores to ensure the pack quantity is updated into the Virtual Pillbox.

Update Alt Supplier Information

Checking the Update Alt. Supplier Information checkbox will import supplier information for all suppliers which stock any products within the MNPN update that is being collected.

Leaving Update Alt. Supplier Information unchecked will only import supplier information for the supplier of the MNPN update which is being collected.
