As a business owner, you have inventory and the need to fill that inventory from vendors. Boxstorm is your software of choice for your inventory management. One feature to aid you in managing the incoming inventory from your vendors is DEFAULT LOCATION. This feature lets you automatically assign specific locations to incoming products as you receive and process them. It’s like having an assigned seat at school. It keeps your warehouse organized and allows you to maintain the same location to draw from for items.
First, make sure your Boxstorm account has the locations you need and use. Once you are in the Locations module, you can create the locations needed for your inventory. These locations can be as general and simple as storefront locations, or you can nest them as sub-locations within those storefronts. You don’t have to limit yourself to brick-and-mortar locations. Yes, you can identify a location down to the bin and shelf for an item, but you can also identify locations for inventory you have on service trucks out on job sites.
For instructions on how to create a location, visit our Locations documentation page.
Create a Default Location
1. Go to the Items module and open a single item and go to the Locations tab within that item.
3. The parent is the root location from which you will handle your inventory. The default location is where your incoming inventory will always be held for ease of management.
4. Once you have established your default location for the item, click SAVE to keep these changes to your inventory management.
