Multi-Location Inventory Report

To run an inventory report showing multiple locations

  • Go to Reporting > Inventory by location report

    Stock Movement Search

  • Choose a warehouse or warehouses from the dropdown menu under locations.

    Stock Movement Search

  • Press run.

  • If you want to see the report in excel, press download

    Stock Movement Search

The search function on the stock movement list page was previously not working properly all of the time. Now it should be fully functional:

Stock Movement Search


  • Fixed issue with receiving bins not appearing on certain incoming shipments: Certain incoming shipments were not going into receiving bins in locations that use bins. This has now been corrected.

  • Users can now create receiving bins (using the same method as other bin locations)

    Create Receiving Location

  • Users can now import a receipt from Excel.


  • Users can now designate and view a “preferred bin” for each product.

    Preferred Bin Location

  • Superusers can now delete pending putaways.

  • Improved Putaway Report: Added a column for preferred bin. Made columns narrower to give more space to write notes in the putaway bin column and margins.

    Putaway Report

  • Bug Fixes

    • Removed products appearing on create putaway that were not in the receiving bin
    • Stopped order of items changing between pages on the putaway workflow
    • Removed a pop-up that appears if the user puts away less than the full quantity

Stocklist Management:

  • Managers and Assistants can now view and print all stock lists. See the instructional video here. Coming soon for browsers!
  • Bug Fixes:
    • Monthly replenishment quantity was generating strange numbers for lists that did not have a replenishment period. This is now fixed.
    • Updated by field on stocklist is now updating correctly (was not working before)

Stock Movement Workflow:

  • Save and exit button added to all pages of stock movement workflow. Clicking this button will return the user to the stock movement view page.

  • Pressing the “back” button on a stock movement prompts an automatic save. This means that work entered on the current page will not be lost if you go back to the previous page.

  • When a user edits a pick, the quantity originally picked will be visible in the popup modal
