Improved functionality of newly added Support inventory pick and warehouse pick operations for jobs

  1. Adding on job planning lines "Quantity to pick" - jobs can be big projects with multiple items and general quantity. It would be good to have possibility to have control over how much we would like to be picked.
  2. Request page when we use "create inventory pick" - now function create inventory pick for every job planning line that meets conditions. Jobs can be larger projects where we plann items needed months ahead. If we could chose that we create inventory pick for task no ABC, or where planning date (from job planning lines) is lesser than 01.06.2022. (so regular filters for job tasks and job planning lines). Without that if we plan dozens (hundreds) of lines (to plan purchase) inventory pick would be unusable with hundred of pick lines where i want to pick items for single task.
  3. Adding to inventory pick header job description, customer no and customer name - this will help to identify inventory pick for warehouse employe. Additionally on lines it would be good idea to add job task no. and job task description.

Thank you for this suggestion! Currently this is not on our roadmap. We are tracking this idea and if it gathers more votes and comments we will consider it in the future. Best regards, Business Central Team



Another urgent request for optimizing picking list from Jobs (projects).

External installtation projects are by default delivering in batches/partial deliveries.

to be able to add the pick quantity column to the planning lines or create a good dialog box from which you can select based on deliverydate/ job task nr / Item type etc, would help out a lot.

Please make picking for job usage more flexible!

Since the warehouse/inventory pick was made mandatory to post usage on jobs, many customers complain about this.

I believe it would have been better to (also) have added the 'create pick' button on the job planning lines,

That way the user can select the specific job planning line which they want to pick for usage.

Indeed right now if the job planning contains 100s of item lines, you get an warehouse/inventory pick for all lines, and then the user needs to remove the lines that are not yet needed.

Very user UNfriendly imho.
