What if you have multiple locations and you’d like to be sure that your stores are selling from their own stock and that your warehouse is shipping material from its stock and not from the stores?

What if you have multiple locations and you’d like to be sure that your stores are selling from their own stock and that your warehouse is shipping material from its stock and not from the stores?

Well, each User Login has its own default location preference, which means that you can have your retail staff set their default location preferences based on which store they work out of and have your warehouse staff do the same.

This will cause any order they open to use their default location instead of that in the system. If you don’t have enough stock to fill it you will be able to see that so you can request some from the warehouse or order more from your supplier as the case may be.

Setting your own default location must be done in the personal preferences window which is available via Main Menu > Settings > Personal Settings and appears as in the image on the right.
