Add Bins

Creating Bins

The storage bin is the smallest available unit of space in a warehouse. The storage bin therefore describes the position in the warehouse where the goods are or can be stored.

Add New Bins

To add new bins navigate to Setup > Warehouse > Zones and select the desired zone from the 'Code' column.

There are two ways to add new bins to the warehouse zone. First, is to create a single bin with a unique name - 'Generate by Name'. Second, is to generate multiple bins using Zone Mask Feature - 'Generate Bins'.

Generate by Name

This method allows user to create a single bin with a unique name.

To finalize single bin generation fill the 'Bin code' field and click 'Submit'. To go back to the Bins overview click 'Close'. Now you should see your newly generated bin.

Generate Bins

To generate multiple bins at once use Zone Mask feature and click on the 'Generate Bins' button.

In the following window you can set the amount of generated bins by aisles and levels.

To finalize bins generation press 'Submit'. You will be automatically transferred to bins overview page and see your newly generated bins (number of bins depends on your parameters in the widow above).

Alternatively you can replace bins numeric order with alphabet using the same Zone Mask settings. Uncheck the 'Numeric' box and set up the desired range in the Bins Generator menu.

As the result you should get the following bins.

Editing Bins

To edit existing bin navigate to Setup > Warehouse > Bins. Click on the link of the desired bin in the 'Code' column from the grid.

In the following window users can edit multiple aspects of the bin. This option creates flexibility to customize individual bins without affecting the entire zone of the warehouse.

Notice: By default bins setting are inherited from the warehouse zone setting.

To save any changes in the bin editing window click 'Update button' as shown above. Edits are not saved automatically.
