Warehouse Inventory Transfer

The Warehouse Inventory Transfer workflow manages the transfer of inventory between warehouses. This article addresses the process to perform the transfer of products between warehouses.

The individual(s) initiating and managing the transfer needs to be logged into the warehouse designated as the "From Warehouse". The individual receiving the inventory needs to be logged into the warehouse designated as the "Destination Warehouse".
