How does a warehouse put-away work?

A warehouse put-away is a document that only creates warehouse entries, and it’s meant to move my items from the receiving bin to the inventory bin where I want to store it.

This is what happens in the video

In this scenario, I’ve prepared an warehouse receipt, and a warehouse receipt is prepared from different source documents, or one source document, and when I post this it will actually post receipt on the purchase order, or whatever documents it’s coming from. This scenario, it’s three different purchase orders as you can see here.

And when I post this it will create warehouse entries, but it will also automatically create a warehouse put-away document.

This means now my purchase orders are posted on my item ledger entries are done, and it would have created a warehouse put-away document, which is a document meant for me to be able to pick the item in the receiving bin, here the bin code 80. So there’s a take line on bin code 80, and there’s a place line where to place the item on suggested bin codes, and you can change the bin here. So you can print this document and work a put-away route in your inventory, while putting all those items away and you can change the bin code here, you update the document, and update the quantity to handle. It could also have been filled in automatically with some set up like this.

So when you fill in all of this lines, and you register the put-away, the only thing that happens is that it creates warehouse entries, moving the items from the receiving zone or receiving bin into your inventory bins that you have added.

So, the put-away document is a document to guide the warehouse employee where to go to the inventory with all these items?
