Unique identification of the store area.

Longer description of the store area.

Indicates which type of store area is involved.

There are two types of store areas and every location is one or the other:

  • – Used to refer to the storage location of items when they are received in inventory. Store areas are grouped into store zones. An example of an input area system: ABC classification.

  • - Used to determine picking routes. The picking lines that make up a picking route are composed of items that are stored in locations within the same picking area.

Automatically activate a refill pallet transport from the bulk location to the picking location if items are missing on the picking location when:

  • A picking route is activated.

  • A picking route is started.

  • A refill pallet transport is completed.

  • The quantity at the picking location is less than specified on the form (available from > > button > ).

  • For more information about refill pallet transports, see About pallet transports.

This option is available for store areas of type only.

The mode of handling refers to the two ways of picking: using a handheld device and registering picked items continuously, or else printing the picking list on paper and updating Microsoft Dynamics AX after completion of picking.

The setting here is used as default on the form.
