PutAway Module


Putting products away is an essential part of day-to-day warehouse operations, involving the movement of inventory from temporary receiving bins to permanent bins on the warehouse shelf. Products can be added to the PutAway list directly through the module, or they can be added during a PO or Container receiving session.

By effectively utilizing the PutAway module, you can streamline your inventory management processes and ensure that products are quickly and accurately stored in their proper locations.

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.
The warehouse you have selected must be bin-enabled to view this module.

Create PutAway Lists

  1. Navigate to the PutAway module of the Transfers tab.
  2. Tap 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.

Search for PutAway Lists

  1. Navigate to the PutAway module of the Transfers tab.
  2. Tap the Search icon to find an existing PutAway list.
  3. In the opened dialog choose:
    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.
  4. Tap Go.

Add Products to a PutAway List

PutAway lists can have different statuses. Items can only be added to a PutAway list with the Pending status.

  1. Create a new PutAway list or search for an existing one (see the steps above) and open it.
  2. For PutAway lists with a Pending status:
    1. Drag down;
    2. Tap the + button;
    3. Enter the product SKU or UPC;
    4. Tap OK;
    5. Adjust the quantity manually or scan the products and tap Add.
  3. For PutAway lists with an Open status:
    1. Change its status to Pending by tapping the ☑ icon at the top right corner.
    2. Add items as described for the Pending status above.

Put away Products from a PutAway List

Only products with an Open status can be put away.

  1. Open a PutAway list of products.
  2. Open the product you would like to put away by tapping it.
  3. In the dialog box enter the following:
    1. Bin To – The bin into which the items will be received;
    2. PutAway Qty – Either enter manually or scan the product.
  4. Tap PutAway.

Put away from a PO or Container

PutAway can be also accessed from the Receiving module.

  1. From the PO/Container activity window, tap on the three dots menu in the upper right-hand corner.
  2. Tap Add to PutAway List.
  3. Proceed with the steps as described above.

Receive Serial Numbers

If the PO Receive setting Require serial scan when necessary is enabled and the product is enabled to require serial scan for Scan and Ship (in Sellercloud > Product Toolbox > Shipping Preferences), you will be required to scan the serial numbers to receive units for that product.
