You can link products to a location with the scanner by first scanning the location label or crate and then the warehouse location you want to link to that product.
Once a product has been inbound, it must be linked to a location. You can do this:
- In GoMonta
- You can link products to a location with the scanner by first scanning the location label or crate and then the warehouse location you want to link to that product.
- Regular stock can only be linked to non-quarantine locations. Quarantine stock can only be linked to quarantine locations.
- Only one product or batch can be linked to a location, unless multiproduct has been enabled. The physical stock is also taken into account here. This is because an order that is ready to be picked may still be cancelled. If a different product were to be linked to that location, it would create a multiproduct location.
- It is possible to specify that only products from a specific supplier can be linked to a specific warehouse location.
- It is possible to specify that only a certain product can be linked to a specific warehouse location.
The location label will specify a location where the product can be stored (if it is already stored somewhere). If that is not the case, it is possible to set up a zone for each client where products can be stored. This information will be printed on the location label. The scanner will also show the locations where the product is already being stored.
Alternative text zone suggestion
If a product has not yet been linked to a warehouse location and no zone suggestion has been set up for the client in question, it is possible to store a text that will be printed on the location label. You can do this under the Inbound header in GoMonta.
Location recommendations for efficient order picking
If there are backorders for an inbound product (and cross-docking is not possible, e.g. because they are M orders), the location label will show a ‘B.‘ It is advisable to place these products close to the e-check, so they can be picked quickly once the order comes out of backorder.
