PutAway Module


PutAway is the process of taking inventory that has been received into temporary receiving bins and putting them away in a bin on the warehouse shelf.

Products can be added to the lists from the PutAway module, or they can be added during a PO or RMA receiving session.

Putting away from the PutAway Module

To put away a product, add it to a PutAway list. You can either create a new PutAway list or search for an existing one.

Creating PutAway Lists

  1. Navigate to the PutAway module of the Transfers tab.
  2. Click the + icon to create a new PutAway.
  3. In the dialog select:
    1. Original BinName – Any bin you wish to put away items into. Scan or enter manually.
    2. Interim BinName – Represents the cart in which the product will be moved to its location in the warehouse. By default, this loads with a pre-configured PutAway Bin for that warehouse. This can be edited if needed.
  4. Decide how products should be added to the new PutAway list:
    1. Select all contents of the bin to build a list – All the products in the original bin will be added to the new PutAway list. The PutAway list will be created with an Open status.  Please note that if you have selected the Select all option you won’t be able to add items unless you manually set the status to Pending.
    2. Scan items to build a list – Only scanned products will be added to the new PutAway list. This option creates an empty PutAway list with a Pending status.
  5. Tap Go.
If you have chosen the Select all contents of bin to build list option, the items will be added to the list automatically.

Searching for PutAway Lists

  1. Navigate to the PutAway module of the Transfers tab.
  2. Click the Search icon to find an existing PutAway list.

    1. Mode – Search All or Search By ID (PutAwayList ID).
    2. Status – Shown when the Search All Mode is chosen.
    3. Product SKU/UPC – Shown when the Search All Mode is chosen. This is an optional field.
