When should you use a warehouse put-away?

What is the difference between a warehouse put-away document and an inventory put-away document?
Whereas the inventory put-away document is created directly from a purchase order, if you don’t have require receive checkmark on your location card, the warehouse put-away document is created from a warehouse receipt, if you have checked mark the require receive checkmark on the location card.

This is what happens in the video

The purpose of using a warehouse put away is similar to an inventory put away, meaning you want to have a document where you can display which item to put away from a specific warehouse receipt, and you want to have a guided routing for the put-away, which tells you which shelfs and bins to go to and where to put the different items.

So the warehouse user will have a guided help on where it should be, and then when you register the put-away document it creates warehouse entries, but it doesn’t create item ledger entries because it’s only a document coming from the warehouse receipt. So the item ledger entry is already posted through the warehouse receipt. So the warehouse put-away document is a document that works in itself only creating warehouse entries.
