00:46 — To begin, Jason creates a warehouse location in Elmira, NY. This location is Bin mandatory and requires both Put-aways and Picks. In this how-to video, he demonstrates how to use a Pick Bin Policy, rather than the Default Bin.

02:03 — Jason configures the warehouse location so that a Pick line is always created, even if Business Central cannot find a Bin that meets the criteria. In the Elmira, NY warehouse location, Jason highlights the inventory that is currently there.

03:01 — Next, Jason walks through the different identifications for the Bins, and notes that a Bin Ranking Number for Directed Picks will categorize the Bins from highest to lowest. He looks through the different inventory numbers for each of the inventory items and notes that they are in the “QA Bin,” which should never be picked from.

04:10 — Moving on, he demonstrates how to do a Directed Pick from a Sales order, referencing one from the School of Fine Arts. Users will get a Bin assignment when they go to create an inventory pick, which Jason does. From there, select the right inventory (and amounts) to fulfill the Sales order.
