Often you would like to use two transfer orders to handle rental items, meaning you want an outgoing transfer order when you ship the item, and you can receive it when it is received to the customers.

This is what happens in the video

And you can ship it back later on maybe even months later, when it’s coming back.

In the rental setup, you can set up per customer or even by default for customer blank if you have a default rental location code where you want to ship it to and store it, a transit location code, and a default return location code.

So for customer blank here, or all the customers. On customer 2000, we will use those different location codes.

This means when I’m creating a new sales order as an example here for customer 20,000, and I’m using my rental item like this.

I want to rent out, for instance, one piece.

Let’s say in six days, when I swap this line, it will create two transfer orders and I can never get into them from my rental relation line for the outbound and inbound transfer order.

The outbound order will be the first one where I can post shipment and received in itself, thereby shipping it from my inventory and maybe it has to be transferred for three days because before it reaches the customer, and then a post received on that transfer order and you can see the number here is 1033.

And likewise, I have my inbound transfer order that determines when the item is coming home from the customer.
