When should you use an inventory put-away document?

Let’s look at the purpose of having an inventory put-away document. The inventory put-away document in Business Central relates to locations where you have check-marked the require put-away field, and also maybe the require bin field, but not the purchase receipt field. This means the inventory document is made directly from the purchase order.

This is what happens in the video

The purpose of having the inventory put-away document is to have a document that displays which item to put away for a specific purchase order and to be guided with a put-away route with which shelves and bins to go to and which items to place in the bins. So it’s the suggestion where to put the item you have received in your inventory.

And of course to be able to post the document, and do the registration, and in this scenario the inventory document creates both item ledger entries and warehouse entries in one go and post directly on the purchase order. So it creates a posted purchase receipt, a posted inventory put-away, and entries in one go.
