How does warehouse management work with receipts and no bins?
If you use a location setup with a checkmark in require receive, but no checkmark in require put-away, and no checkmark in require bin – you will only use the purchase receipt document, that could be used for instance for external warehouses, but it could also be used if you want to use purchase receipt with no bins and put-aways.
This is what happens in the video
This is the flow from a purchase order. You need to release the purchase order, that’s the first step.
This will create a warehouse request, after that, it’s possible from the purchase order to create a warehouse receipt, and the warehouse receipt is the document you can use for the receipt handling.
This document could be printed out and used directly in the receiving zone, or you could send it to an external warehouse through an EDI connection, or whatever through mail.
After you get feedback that the document is handled you update the warehouse receipt line, and then you post the warehouse receipt.
This will create a posted warehouse receipt document, and it will create item ledger entries and a posted purchase receipt documents. So from the warehouse receipt, you actually post the purchase order and the warehouse receipt in one go. This is the flow when you don’t use bin and you don’t use put-aways.
