Need Warehouse/Bin numbers to be visible to suppliers and need to enable SEARCH by BIN NUMBER on inventory home page


Please refer to my previous post 70494. I don't think it has been resolved. It is very important to be able to have a warehouse/bin/stock number column in "create orders" page in inventory. Most vendors and suppliers go by their own stock/item numbers and want those numbers included in purchase orders. Currently, I cannot place purchase orders to vendors using SE because there is no ability to include those vendor's item/stock numbers. The column called "warehouse/bin/stock" number in "purchase orders" is a must in my opinion.

Also, need ability to SEARCH regular inventory by warehouse/bin number as well. Right now it is not possible. Please see if that could be added.

Thank you!!!

Hi Yan, 

Thank you for your post. I have reviewed your previous request and understand that you need the ability to search by warehouse/bin in addition to displaying this value on your purchase orders created in ShippingEasy. 

Though we do not yet support this in our application I may have a temporary workaround for you. For each product saved in the ShippingEasy product catalog you can assign a supplier. When you do this you are also able to save the unit cost and supplier SKU for the designated product and supplier association. I've reviewed your account and it appears that you are not currently using the supplier SKU field. So, you could use this field to enter the warehouse/bin for each product and supplier. I understand that this field will still be label as the supplier SKU on your purchase orders but I wonder if this would help your suppliers to better identify your products that need re-ordering. 

I should also mention that as we are currently in the busy holiday shipping season our development team has gone into a code freeze. To help ensure stability within our application we will not be making any changes to the software until 2017. In the meantime, we will direct any customers with similar requests to comment or follow on this post as well. Feedback helps us to learn how many customers are interested in each feature and prioritize what we should work on next in the New Year.
