Welcome to AlignBooks. We are happy to have you on board. In this help studio tutorial, we will explore the “Warehouse” set up options.
Before we begin, let us understand about the need of Warehouse setup and the usage of this particular activity.
If you have multi Warehouse, you may need to maintain separate inventory records for each warehouse; this will help you to make proper business decisions related to your dispatches based on the geographical Warehouse. To avoid the difficulties of consolidating the inventory records at parent level, AlignBooks maintain your inventory records for each warehouse on standalone basis along with the consolidated records for the whole company.
Therefore, in Warehouse utility we setup the warehouse profile for each warehouse with all the available data at hand. This is normally a one-time process at the time of new Warehouse addition and this library of data is extensively used to capture, generate and auto generate the required documents and reports in a desired format.
This facility is available only if you have configured “Warehouse -ON” while configuring your Company Setup. For doing so, go to Configuration -> Company Setup -> Inventory and keep the Warehouse option “ON”. 
You can also edit and delete an already created set of information with required authorisation.
The key functions of a Warehouse Module are:
·     Creation of a New Warehouse Record;
·     Modification of an existing Warehouse Record;
·     Deletion of an existing Warehouse record.
We will be going through the each of these set of information in detail.
