Using the mobile client to change location or status WHS AX 2012 R3.

You can create work to instruct a warehouse worker to move inventory from one location in the warehouse to another – but you can also create a mobile client menu item that allows a worker to perform an un-planned move (or to change the inventory status on some on-hand inventory).

Create yourself a Mobile device menu item. Warehouse management > Setup > Mobile device > Mobile device menu items:


You need a mobile device menu item Mode = Work; don’t tick ‘Use existing work’; set the ‘Work creation process’ = Movement.

Add the menu item to a Mobile device menu. Warehouse management > Setup > Mobile device > Mobile device menu:

I’ve logged on to the mobile client, and here’s my menu:

Movement gives:

Enter Location and item or LP. OK gives:

Enter from batch number, Quantity, Unit and Inventory status. OK gives:

Confirm unit. OK gives:

Enter inventory status. OK gives:

Confirm. OK gives:

Careful – up until now we were confirming the ‘From’ information’, Here we’re entering the ‘To’ status and location. OK gives:

And we’re done.

  1. Is there a way that you can have the inventory status default in as the current inventory status of that license plate or batch? If I have a batch that has inventory status of “Unavailable” and I then use this menu item to move locations, the system defaults in “Available” as the inventory status, so unless the user remembers to change the inventory status, the system will update the material from “Unavailable” to “Available”. I understand you can set up a default inventory status for all warehouse transactions, but that doesn’t resolve the problem of me only wanting to move the material, not update the inventory status of it.
