In-Transit Transfers (also known as Service Transfers) are another method of transferring inventory from one warehouse to another, potentially with stops in between. This document details the setup and use of the In-Transit Transfers functionality of SalesPad Desktop. Any relevant settings and securities will be described at the end of the document.
Note: SalesPad can only generate In-Transit Transfers, it cannot ship or receive them. Shipping and receiving need to be completed within Dynamics GP.
The In-Transit Transfer Search can be found in the Inventory module. This will be needed in order to view, modify or create In-Transit Transfers. The search screen is similar to other document search screens in SalesPad Desktop, and it supports features like Auto-Filter Row and Column Chooser. The layout can be changed with Customize Layout. These changes will be preserved as a custom layout.
Click the New button to create a new transfer. You will see the following screen.
The From Site and To Site dropdown fields are required, but everything else in the header is optional. It is recommended that these be filled in before adding items as the selections will then be copied to the line automatically. The Order Document ID can be entered manually, but if left blank will use the next value from Dynamics GP.
After supplying all information and saving, your screen will look like the following screen. You’re now ready to fulfill the items using the Fulfillment plugin. You might have to use the Action menu dropdown to locate the button. By Configuring Actions, you can place the button on the toolbar like below.
First, click the item to fulfill in the In-Transit Transfer Lines section. Then, click the red arrow to apply the fulfillment.
Note: All fulfillment changes take place immediately, NOT after saving.
When you select a source for the fulfillment, you will be prompted to select a bin to move the items to in the site listed as the To Site on the line. This information must be supplied in order to fulfill. The message box will have a list of existing bins from the new site available in a dropdown menu.
Once you have selected a fulfillment, the grid showing the line information will update with the new fulfilled quantity. Once the quantity fulfilled matches the transfer quantity, the highlighting will disappear indicating that the process is complete.
