How To: Add Picking Location to Basic Report Stock Labels

Basic Reports is an Advanced User feature.

Stock labels can either be setup as Basic Reports or using the Stock Default Label Setup. The benefits of using Basic Reports is that there are more options available to configure, in this example a Picking Location can be added into the label to display the stock location for the site as defined in the Stock Item Parameters dialog.

For more details when setting up Basic Report labels see System Operations - Basic Reports Labels Setup.
