Warehouse Management : Location Override

Microsoft Dynamics AX location directives suggest where to put particular item within a warehouse depending on the nature of inventory or type of action performed at the time of receiving. For example, a good that is marked as damaged can be put at return location while goods in satisfactory conditions can be put on their designated locations.

Microsoft Dynamics AX also allows to override locations at the time of pick and put processes. This ensures smooth operations in a warehouse and users can override selections when required. Options for overriding locations are user based and need to be enabled.

To enable this functionality navigate to warehouse management > setup > worker user > worker | select the worker and allow override based on warehouses.

At the time of PUT users will have suggestions from the system as well as options from the system to override the quantities.

  1. I find this blog really useful, as I can call myself a beginner in using ERP software. With a help of microsoft dynamics partner MS Dynamics has been recently introduced in our business. We find it really useful but we still don't use some of its valuable features.
