How to add or edit locations

Modified on Wed, 10 Apr 2024 at 04:59 PM

Notes on Locations. Stores should have a location for each place that they store Bins. This usually includes a Backroom and often a Storage Unit, sometimes more than one. Floor is a special case location. It is the terminal location for a Bin because once the Bin moves to the sales floor it is emptied and ready for reuse.

Except for Floor, most locations have a Next Location button that can be clicked to automatically move a Bin from the current location to the next. Often the Next Location for the Backroom is Floor.

Some stores like to use pick lists for picking up Bins from a storage unit or for gathering Bins to put out on the sales floor. Those stores may create a Location like "Pick up from Storage Unit" to use as a pick list.

How to add or edit Locations:

-Go to the Settings screen by clicking the icon on the top right and choose Settings.

-Click the Backstock icon then click the Locations tab.

-To add a Location you can click the Add location button

-Enter a Name in the Name Block, and select an existing Location as the Next Location. If everything looks good you can click the Create Location button. 

-To edit a Location, click the Edit icon next to the Location you want to edit.

-Make any changes to the name, make any changes to the Next Location block, then click save
