Main Company Wide Multi-bin Options

 

Pre-Allocate in S/O Entry: Inventory Allocations can be considered physically setting aside an item for use elsewhere. Allocations are considered hard, because an item allocated in one place, cannot be allocated to another as well. Goods can be pre-allocated manually in Sales Order entry or directed picking “allocates” goods automatically from the rules set in the system. Options for allocations are outlined below:

Yes

Allows manual entry and changes to hard-allocate (pre-allocated) inventory in Sales Order Entry.

All Versions

No

disallows manual entry (i.e., manual distribution and pre-allocations) in Sales Order Entry.

All Versions. This should not be selected for any customers that are also using Scanco Warehouse picking applications.

Auto Allocate as Order is Saved

auto allocates inventory to the sales order as the order is saved. In Sales Order entry/Header tab the Auto Allocate checkbox is defaulted ON as orders are created and changed and will auto allocate the order as saved. That checkbox can be unchecked to not auto allocate the sales order. Auto allocate uses the full directed picking setup to calculate inventory to allocate.

 

Option not available for Standard Version. Must have directed picking enabled. Directed picking options are set by company (tab 6) and can be overridden by product line or by item.

Summarize Lots

provides a pre lookup summary of Lotted inventory, eliminating quantities by location. This is useful when manually allocating desired lots and lot inventory is in many locations.

All versions

Button to Auto Allocate Order

The Button to Auto Allocate Order provides the Allocate Button on the bottom of Sales Order entry. Pressing the button will auto allocate the order and redisplay the sales order lines panel so the results of the allocations can be quickly viewed. Auto allocate uses the full directed picking setup to calculate inventory to allocate.

Option not available for Standard Version. Must have directed picking enabled. Directed picking options are set by company (tab 6) and can be overridden by product line or by item.
