Add a simple option to the location card to pick inventory by oldest open item ledger entry first instead of using alphabetic bin numbers. At the moment the system will pick first from the bin that comes first in alphabetic sequence.

I know that you could also turn on fifo and more advanced picking options.
But we don't use that and when you want to do fifo, more administration is also required.

A simple option to first allocate the oldest open item ledger entries, is the easiest way to achieve that oldest stock will be picked first.

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



Looks like this already exist in other products, like Dybamics 365 Supply Chain Management.

Would it be great to have it also in Business Central.

I can't believe this isn't implemented yet. As a company that strives to always have stock on hand, Business Central with directed pick and put-away would always leave the same pallet on the shelf if we keep restocking before selling out.

FEFO adds to much unnecessary complexity but at least some form of FIFO should be basic functionality.

A simple trick like this would solve a lot of issues, even if it's a strict FIFO picking, the fact that it would use A date instead of BIN name makes much more sense.
