Creating Locations within a Branch

Last updated 16/07/2018

Locations can be predefined for each branch. This article explains 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 reading this introduction to locations before continuing.

To apply locations to a branch:

  1. In the CRM List page, search for the appropriate Branch. Learn how to create branches on Creating a Branch.
  2. Click 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 i.e. '- 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. Click Save
  5. In order for the changes to apply you must log out of the system, then log back in
