This feature provides efficient warehouse management by enabling users to create picking pools based on area, filter orders by area code, print pool sheets with area code, handle expiry management and validate orders in existing order pools.
Step 1: Warehouse Setting
To start using this feature, go to the Warehouse Settings page and enable "Pick Pool Flow". You will find two options for picking flow: "Pick pool by area" and "Pick pool by storage." Select "Pick pool by area" and save the changes.

Once the setting is enabled, go to the Orders module. You can now select the orders from the gird and create “Picking Pool by Area" from actions filter, depending on the pick pool flow selected in the warehouse settings. You can also create a picking pool on the web, and picking will be done via PDA.

To print a pool sheet, go to the Orders module, and select the pool you want to print. Click on the "Actions" option and select " Print Pool Sheet." The feature also takes care of area-wise pool sheets for two different sections of tables.
