    Title:
    Partial Pick release of Transfer order
    Summary:
    Partial Pick option
    Content:

    Hi - Are there any provision to prevent the pick release from consuming partial quantity?  i.e., if only 10 units are available and if the Transfer order is for 25 units, system should NOT pick release until there is 25 quantities on-hand.

    You can look at the Allow Partial Picking field on the Inventory Picking Rule to see if it meets your requirement.  This checkbox dictates whether a line being released can be partially picked if the total required quantity is not available using this picking rule. When it is enabled, the line can be partially picked. When it is disabled, the line will be backordered if the line cannot be picked fully.

    Example:

    During pick release time, if the request quantity for the shipment line is 100 and the available quantity is only 60, this ‘Allow partial picking’ flag works as follows:

    • If the flag is enabled, 60 would be picked
    • If the flag is disabled, nothing would be picked and the line would be backordered

      Thanks Lynn - That's exactly we are planning to do;  I see that sending the transactions to WMS/3PL without underlying reservation has been identified for next release;  We would use this Pick Rule functionality in the interim.

      Thanks,
