Last updated 07/03/2018

This article explains how to dispatch outward Branch Transfers using the Pick 'n' Pack.

Overview


The Pick 'n' Pack app can be used to dispatch Branch Transfers. Dispatching a Branch Transfer will move stock from SOH in the 'from' branch into holding stock.

For more information about Branch Transfers please see Creating a Branch Transfer.

If you have not already set up the app, please see Setting Up the Pick 'n' Pack.

Transfer dispatching is done in three stages:

  1. Selecting the transfer you would like to pick from the transfers page, either a single transfer or multiple transfers.
  2. Picking the items in the selected transfers from the Pick Page.
  3. Dispatching the transfer.

The Pick 'n' Pack guides you through these stages by displaying the next step in the middle of the screen, above the tabs, at all times.

Before you begin, ensure that you have done the following things:

  • Select the correct branch from the top right of the screen.
