How do you work with dedicated bins?

Directly on the specific bin, you can set up the bin to be a dedicated bin. This means you will not create pick activity or suggest pick activity from that bin. This only applies to the directed put away location with the directed put away and pick functionality.

This is what happens in the video

So, if these are all my bins in my bin list, I could just place a checkmark here in the column dedicated if the bin is empty, meaning I could place a checkmark on this one, but not on this one because I can see on the checkmark that the bin is not empty.

Placing a checkmark in the dedicated field means that it will not be suggested for pick activities so even if the bin type code is a put-pick or a put functionality, the dedicated bin will not suggest the picks from that bin.

So this could be used, for instance, in production environments where you would like to set up a bin on a work center and you would like to make pick activities into that bin and then lock the bin to the work center.

This is a dedicated bin.
