The purchase receiving process has an issue. Mobile client brings the PO line to 'registered' - Nobody in warehouse or office is willing to go to each PO and individually click a "Product receipt" for the registered lines - Batch program in advanced warehousing exists to bring PO lines to "received" status using a LOAD number - So we can auto-create Loads for each PO via a parameter in Transportation - then the batch program , filtering on "inbound" and "open" load status could theoretically handle this.. all PO lines become "received" after being "registered" within a few minutes. But then we still have a Load in status 'received' which is not the final status. somebody will have to manually go to each Load (and we have one load per PO) and say "confirm inbound shipment".. and only then will the load be 'shipped' and disappear from the radar screen. No batch exists to "auto confirm inbound shipments". What can be done to streamline the PO receiving process in advanced warehousing? We would like to request a batch program that processes "registered" PO lines to "received" and also confirms the inbound shipment. There is no business added value to have that last step as a manual step

Thank you for your feedback. This is a great suggestion! We have it on our roadmap.

It's part of two themes for our work -

1. flexibility - ability to perform some workflows based on various existing working workflow but this specific combination is not supported, this is due to the way we work where we prioritize shipping scenarios that are main stream leaving out second priority scenario - this scenario has been left behind for quite some time - we are not sure to be able to do this for 7.3 but we will try to load it in. 

 2. one warehousing, we want to only support one warehouse solution, not solving this work flow pushes users to utilize WMS1 warehouses, this is ineffective.

Sincerely,

Philippe Jacobsen

This very thing was a customization in my clients' R3 environment and it's looking like it will be another customization in F&O. That said, I would say almost every client I've had using the WMS (the real one) has had this requirement, but just deal with the pain of performing the manual updates rather than enhance the system. I'm glad to see this is planned for future release!

Lauren's note from 1/19/19 makes sense. DSI Scanworkx has ability to post product receipt for WHS Pos from their receiving menus. It allows you to create the delivery note/PS number when registering the products then continue to register multiple lines before posting.

I would prefer the proposed solution of Nicholas Cram

Agree with Nicholas -- don't forget that freight costs aren't typically known. "Received status should be a "final" status for inbound shipments and thus filtered from the overview."

I do not know when the status details were updated, but as it seems to be very high demand for a solution (as it makes no sense to have double actions to update the packingslip) please provide an updated status, this issue is urgent. I am in favor of solution from Laurens van der Tang (+Karina and Lorenzo)

To complete the suggestion by Laurens van der Tang, it must also request the date of the delivery note ...

It really doesn't make sense to perform same work twice 1st on mobile and then in client. Most of the customers always push back. Extremely difficult to make customers understand why it is so :(

The load can be automatically confirmed via an audit policy template event.

I agree with Laurens van der Tang. It is important, that you can start the receiving on the mobile device for a given vendor product receipt ID. Stop the receiving, re-start it for the same ID and once completed. Declare it completed and let the product receipt update for all items registered under that ID.

Agree with this, but I have still one additional suggestion. In order to post the product receipt you have also to enter the delivery note number of the supplier. If you can enter it during registration in the warehousing app, that would be really helpful. Right now you have to enter in manually in Dynamics after registration with warehousing app, and then you can post the product receipt.


Solution idea: 



  1. Add an option in the warehousing app to enter the delivery note number

  2. Save the entered delivery note number on the purchase order(line)

  3. When you run the batch process for the product receipt in Warehouse Management, D365 E.E should post the product receipt including the entered delivery note number + confirm inbound shipment
