Dynamics GP 2013R2 Assign Item to Multiple Sites

Another new feature of Dynamics GP 2013R2: Assign Item to Multiple Site.

If you have multiple sites set up in your Inventory system, you know how tedious it can be to create a new item and assign it to all the sites it belongs to. With this new feature, you can assign/unassign and manage all aspects of an item at multiple sites in one window.

Start at Quantities/Sites

Inventory >> Cards>> Quantities/Sites

Select an existing item or create a new item. Then from the [Go To] drop down choose Site Item Assignments.

Item Quantities_Sites

(Below is information you can find in the Help Text in Dynamics GP 2013 R2 for Site Item Assignments.)

Use the Site Item Assignments window to assign a range of sites to an item. You also can select a primary vendor, landed cost group ID, and the item print option for each site you want to assign to the item.

If you’re using multiple bins and you’ve specified default bins for the site, the bin selections aren’t automatically assigned to the item-site combinations. Refer to Specifying default bins for an item-site combination in Help Text for more information.

Site Item Assignments

Item-site relationships

When you assign items to a site, purchase receipts and quantity information are maintained for that item-site combination. If you transfer items to another site, purchase receipt information—such as cost—also is transferred.

To do this, you must define sites and then create item-site relationships. For example, you might have a North warehouse and a South warehouse. To be able to stock an item at both warehouses, you must assign the item to both sites.

Every inventoried item must be assigned to at least one site. You can define as many sites as you need, and you can assign each item to as many sites as necessary

Field Overview:

Sites: You can choose to Mark All, Unmark All or select a Range to mark.

Select: Mark to assign the site to the item. You must mark the Select option before you can enter information for the item/site combination.

If a site within the selected range is already assigned to the item, the Select option is marked in the scrolling window. You cannot unmark the site within the Site Item Assignment window.

Inactive Item/Site: You can mark an Item Inactive, or you can mark an item inactive for specific sites. Displays marked if the item is inactive. You can assign sites to an inactive Item.

Primary Vendor: Enter the ID for the vendor you order the selected item from most often specific to this site.

Landed Cost Group ID: If you’re using landed costs and you’ve selected a site, you can enter or select the identifier of the landed cost group for an item-site combination. Refer to Landed cost cards for more information.

Item Print Option

Displays the print option for the selected item-site combination. This field is available only if you’re using advanced picking. You can select a picking ticket print option to assign to the selected site. You can choose from Individual, Bulk, or Both.

  • Individual – When the selected site is included on a fulfillment order/invoice, order, invoice, or return, individual picking tickets will be printed. Items assigned to the selected site will be printed only on individual picking tickets.
  • Bulk – When the selected site is included on a fulfillment order/invoice, bulk picking tickets will be printed. Items assigned to the selected site will be printed only on bulk picking tickets.
  • Both – When the selected site is included on a fulfillment order/invoice, you can select to print individual picking tickets or bulk picking tickets. Items assigned to the selected site will be printed on both individual and bulk picking tickets.
