How To: Create Build Stock Items using Warehouse Control

Warehouse Location Control is not enabled by default.
Training must be completed before using the warehouse functionality.
Please email Development for more information.
Note: there will be additional costs involved if this option is enabled.

Warehouse Location Control is an Advanced User feature.
It contains complex, resource-intensive functionality and a decision to begin using it should therefore not be taken lightly.

Build items are constructed from other stock items. By default no automatic stock movements occur when build items are added to sales orders as the quantity built via the relationships tab affects the stock level.

Creating a new Build Parent Stock Item

  1. Open a Stock screen (show me how).
  2. Press Ctrl+N or click the New item icon is the button bar's NEW button .
  3. Define the parent item (stock code, description, pricing and stock types).
  4. Press Ctrl+S or click the disk icon is the button bar's SAVE button to save.
  5. Define the Primary Pick Location where the Parent Item will be stored after it has been built.
    Note: the built item will only be stored in the first Primary Pick Location that has space available. If there is no space then an error will be returned.

  2. Press Alt+E or click the green triangle icon is the buttonbar's EDIT button to enter edit mode.
