How do you configure default bins?

On the location card, you should set up a series of default bins for your warehouse documents. In this example, my warehouse shipment that I have created it will default fill in my bin code as a default shipment bin.

This is what happens in the video

And this means, when I create a warehouse pick from my warehouse shipment, it would suggest picking the item somewhere in the warehouse, of course, and then to apply them to the shipping bin.

So, you can see here the shipping bin code in the last line where the item is meant to behold until I’m actually shipping it.

This is the setup on the location card, let’s see how it works.

So, if you go into your location, you should define on the bins fast tab in here the default bins for shipping, production, receipt, adjustment, cross-docking, etc.

So for instance, your adjustment bin code is used when you create a warehouse adjustment and until you synchronize up against the item journal to adjust your actual item inventory, the item will be placed in the adjustment bin code and the adjustment bin code will be locked for picking.

So, in this way, you can define different bin codes and you can call them whatever you like in your bin table.
