How can I specify unique serial numbers for the same product during incoming shipment registration?

I want to register an incoming shipment with a unique serial number for each product that arrives. I ordered 5 units of the same product, and I want to assign 5 unique serial numbers. How can I make that work?

Make sure to tick the option Track lots or serial numbers in Settings > Configuration > Warehouse to be able to enter serial numbers. In the barcode interface (accessible from Warehouse > Operations > All Operations by clicking the barcode), you will receive your incoming shipments. 

In order to assign unique serial numbers, put the quantity of the corresponding product line to 1. Then click Create lot (at the right side of the line) and enter the lot / serial number

Now put that 1 unit in pack. 

Then do the same for the remaining quantities: always select 1 unit, create a lot / serial number and put that 1 unit in pack. That way, you will have a lot number for each unit.

Sorry where is the "Commenting tool"???

My comment would be: "Would it be more easier to have a place to scan all the serials numbers more quickly? I find this part really not user friendly and slow."

Sorry, how to make serial number unique that can't input same serial number twice?

Our product is mobile device, Is there a way to input serial number faster?

Not input and process one by one, like input a list serial number before processing

Thanks in advance
