The bin locations is an approach to storing your products in the warehouse. This method implies that the system assigns a unique address to each and every bin.
Such an approach allows you to track the location for every product item, which significantly optimizes inventory management.
Enabling and configuring the Bin Locations
How to enable the bin locations?
Navigate to the Settings > Warehouses page and check the Enable bin locations checkbox to activate this feature.
After that, you can see the Bins tab when editing the warehouse. There is a single Bin with the “Bin 1A” name on each and every warehouse by default.
Hit the bin name to edit its name or barcode. Hit the Print button to print the bin barcode.
How to create a new Bin?
Click the + Bin button to create a new bin. Enter the bin name and barcode. The system generates the barcode automatically. However, you can always enter yours manually. Hit the Create button to confirm the action.
Check the And add one more checkbox and then hit Create if you want to add multiple bins. RemOnline saves the first one automatically, and then you can create the next bin.
You should select the default warehouse bin. The system will use this bin by default when posting or transferring products and assets to this warehouse. You can always change the bin during the posting or transfer operation.
Displaying bins for products
You can store the same product in different bins at the same time. Navigate to the product profile and to the Shipments or Stock tab to discover the product bins and the exact quantity in each location. Or you can hover over the product quantity in the table on the Inventory > Stock page.
Displaying bins for assets
You can store the asset only in one place. You can see the current asset location in the asset table in the Warehouse column or in the asset profile on the General tab.
Disabling the Bin Locations
Go to the Settings > Warehouses page and uncheck the Enable bin locations checkbox to deactivate this feature.
Remember: you can only disable this feature when there is up to 1 bin in each and every warehouse.
Click the Remove icon to delete the bin. You can only remove the bin when there are no products stored in it. You can use bulk actions to transfer, write-off, or remove the products from the specific bin in the Products table or Assets table.
