So, with the release of nested warehousing (thank you!) I’m trying to figure out how best to use it to meet my needs. So, I thought I would start this thread to allow for another discussion on this. So, Here’s a breakdown on how I am gathering that this works:
There is a parent warehouse, called ‘Warehouses’. This contains all of the warehouses in the system, including warehouses in multiple companies. This ‘group’ warehouse cannot be used in transactions.
When expanded, the ‘child’ warehouses can be either ‘group’ or ‘non-group’ warehouse types. ‘group’ type warehouses cannot be used in transactions, but ‘non-group’ ones can.
So, the problems that I’m facing is that I have attempted to setup our stockroom as a nested set:
- Stock Room - MC
- Aisle D1 - MC
- Shelf A - MC
- D1A1 - MC
- D1A2 - MC
- D1A3 - MC
- Shelf B - MC
- D1B1 - MC
- D1B2 - MC
- D1B3 - MC
- Shelf A - MC
This works beautifully as an organizational tool, however when it comes to using these in practice, there are a few problems.
When attempting a Stock Entry for transfer, the warehouse list is not organized by this method, it’s just random:
I feel like this should be organized by the same structure.
When selecting the source warehouse for an item, the filter list should only show warehouses that the have inventory of the selected item.
The warehouse should show the available quantity of the item, just like the available quantity of batches is shown when selecting.
If anyone else has any suggestions for improving the warehousing in the system, or has any problems, please post in this thread.
