Warehouse: Warehouse Sections Tab

Use this tab to create and add warehouse sections to the warehouse.

Warehouse section - logical or physical subdivision of a warehouse; a warehouse compartment.

While defining the warehouse you create and link warehouse sections to it. You cannot link warehouse sections defined for specific warehouses to any other warehouses.
Note: A default warehouse section is automatically created for each warehouse added to the system. You can manually create a warehouse section only after you save the warehouse. Before the first save, you cannot add a warehouse section, the option is unavailable. 
The tab is unavailable if the creation of warehouse sections for warehouses is not allowed in the system.

For more details, see My Company Settings: Preferences Tab.

To create a warehouse section for the warehouse

1. Go to the Warehouse sections tab.

  • Select a warehouse for which you create this section from the list of existing warehouses. By default, the warehouse from which you were redirected to this page is provided.  
  • If necessary, select this section as a default one by turning on the Default option. 
Note: Only one default warehouse section can be selected for a warehouse. If you have previously designated a specific section as default, and now you want to use a different section instead, you have to change the default warehouse section. To do that, turn off the Default option in the record of the default warehouse section, and then turn this option on for a section that you want to assign as default.

You define a warehouse section as default to enable the auto-completion of warehouse sections in documents. If no section is designated as default, you will have to manually select a warehouse section in various documents to be able to save them. 

  • Specify its number.
Note: You can leave this field empty and the system will automatically assign the number to the warehouse based on the selected numerator.
