On the job plan line there is a bin code. It can be made visible but basically it does not do anything. So basically it does not show any info about item's and location's bin content but user can put anything there. I don't want to delete the field but could it for example show only those bin codes that actually contain that item?

Thank you for your feedback. We released this feature as part of the functionality in "Bin codes in jobs".

Please refer to the following link for more information:

This is a very minor change so that Jobs moves one tiny step into Warehousing.
You have activated the long dormant 'Bin Code' field on the Job Planning Line. It now looks up to Bin Contents and defaults to the standard (Fixed Bin/Last Bin used) logic.

The data then defaults onto the Job Journal Line when you create a Job Journal from the JPL. The Bin Code field has always been on the Job Journal Line, so basically you are just allowing the user to specify it on the JPL earlier in the process.

It errors if you put a directed put-away and pick Location (WHITE) in the Location field so that is good.

It also errors when you try and post a Job Journal where the stock in the Bin you have specified is already allocated to an Inventory pick which is vital.

I'm not sure how much use this functionality is for a Location that is also using Inv Picks and Puts: It will work and you won't get errors but if you keyed the Item line onto the JPL weeks ago then the data is probably long out of date.
The only way it could be used was if the user did the following as one transaction:
1. Update Bin Code on JPL (Checking for a Bin with Available stock).
2. Create Job Journal
3. Post Job Journal
