How is the Outbound Warehouse flow with only Bins required?

I will show you a complete flow in Business Central that reflects this picture, meaning I have set up a location only with the checkmark in the usage of bin, meaning bin mandatory.

This is what happens in the video

So I would expect to create a sales order and pick directly on the sales order, update my sales order line, post it, and then it should create warehouse entries and item ledger entries.

Let’s see how this looks in Business Central.

I will make a new sales order for my customer like this and I will add some item lines.

Two different items whatever bikes here, quantity of 4 and 2 for this customer.

Here we are.

And it will default suggest and the bin code where to pick this.

I could also lookup in my list and it will display my bin content on this item so I can see that my item 1001 is on two bins and my item thousand is placed on three different bins.

Basically, I could just print the picking document for my sales order here.

And my picking document is to be found somewhere in the menu, of course, it’s called a pick instruction and it’s actually meant for doing a simple pick for the warehouse people based directly on the order document.

This is my pick instruction.

It reflects the sales order lines and which bin codes to find it on and I can enter manually with a bin on the right-hand side, quantity picked and when I’m shipping it, quantity shipped.

Back in Business Central, I’ve got my pick instruction back and maybe the user for some reason took it from another bin, one of them like this, and I’m just updating the bin code before I post it.
