How to add Locations to a Branch.

Adding Locations


Each Branch can store a list of predefined Locations. This will save you writing in a location manually when receiving stock.

If you have not used Locations before, it may be worth reviewing the Locations Overview Help article before continuing.

To apply Locations to a branch:

  1. In the CRM List page, search for the appropriate Branch.
    See the Creating a Branch Help article for how to create Branches.
  2. Select View.
  3. In the locations field, enter the locations as follows:

    Note that:
    • Each new Zone should be made on a new line.
    • Each Bin within a Zone is defined by adding a space and a hyphen before it; for example, "- A2".
    • If you're using the consolidated pick slip, the zones and bins will be listed in order by how it's been recorded in the Branch Locations box.
  4. Select Save to save your changes.

In order for the changes to apply, you must log out of the system then back in.
