How to Perform a Bin Move

Hello! I hope you and your family had a great holiday! I know I enjoyed my first Florida Christmas! It was great to go to the beach on Christmas day! Anyway, back to things at hand. Last week we talked the basics about bins. Today, I would like to address how to perform a new "Bin Move". A bin move is a great feature and I find a lot of our clients use this frequently. 

If you need to transfer qty from bin to bin, you can use our newest feature called a Bin move. You can start a new bin move from the Warehouse menu – New Bin Move. This will prompted the bin transfer screen. Enter the location and the date of the transfer. There are 2 ways to move your bin quantities, you can move one item at a time or Move an entire bin. To move one item at a time select select that option. This selection will allow you to move a specific item and quantity. Select the bin from and the bin to and select one item, lot/serial #’s and enter the qty to transfer. One note to make, when you select your from bin, the total quantity in the bin (of all items) is listed.

Once you have selected the item, the total quantity for that item in that bin is listed. You can use that to determine the qty that you will transfer. Click add and your entry will be listed below. Repeat the steps for multiple items. The second way is to Move an Entire bin, you can do this by selecting the Move entire bin option. This will move all items and quantities from on bin to another. Select the bin you will transfer from and the bin you will transfer to. The total inventory in that bin will be selected, Click add and it will list all of the items located in that bin.

You can delete the line items that you do not want to transfer by clicking the red X on the line item.

Lastly, you can click Create Transfers and a new Quantity Adjustment screen will open. Remember no quantity is adjusted, you are just moving one bin to another.

In my years of being a Warehouse Supervisor, we had over 200 bins. The inventory warehouse software that we were using at the time did not have a feature like All Orders does. This feature would have made life a lot easier for me. Remember if you have any questions or concern's the NumberCruncher team is here for you. Please give our customer support line a call - (866) 278-6243. You can send us an email also - Have a great New Year!! Here's to 2016! Best of luck!
