How to include multiple document types in one shipment?

A warehouse shipment is basically a document for bundling together outbound items or items that we are going to ship independent of the source type they’re coming from.

This is what happens in the video

So in this scenario, I have made a new warehouse shipment and I could import my source document directly to this warehouse shipment, and when I look at my open-source document list, I have both the purchase return order and different sales orders and I could just select from the list whatever to import and press ok.

And as you can see here, the import line from both the purchase return order and the sales order.

From a warehouse perspective, those are all outbound items and to the warehouse employee, it doesn’t matter what the source document is, it is still one warehouse shipment.

I will just delete the line and show you with the other functionality, the use filters to get source document.

It’s actually the same when you modify your filters, you can see here a possibility to change which documents to include and in this scenario, I have both purchased return order documents, etc.

So when I run this one, I will also get all the documents in here.

Of course, if I have deselected some of them, they wouldn’t have come into this warehouse shipment.
