    Title:
    Is there a way to Ship all lines in Transfer Order - Basically Restrict partial shipment of a TO
    Content:

    We want to restrict partial shipment of Transfer Orders. 

    So if we have all lines in a TO that can be picked and shipped then only the system should allow.

    If any line of the TO cannot be fulfilled (due to qty) - All lines can be backordered or just not picked. 

    Basically -- I am looking for a Ship Set kind of functionality - Like how we have in OM.

     

    Any idea on how this can be achieved?

      Transfer Orders don't support Ship sets yet.  It's a known enhancement.   We have recommended to a few customers needing this to route the Transfer Orders through Order Management.   In OM, as a workaround,  a Rule or an extension could be designed to assign the ship set name on the lines within a TO.

        Thanks Lynn -- My customer does not have license to OM -- Having license to INV, MFG -- will it give us limited access to use this feature that you described?

        WIll really help if you can give some more light on this.

      In order to use Order Management, you'd need an OM license.    You could also look at using the 'Allow partial picking' flag on the Inventory Picking Rule.  That could help with the Picking Logic but wouldn't stop a partial shipment the way a Ship Set would.  It would likely help at least partially in your scenario.  When it is disabled, the line will be backordered if the line cannot be picked fully.
      Example:

        Thanks Lynn -- yes this what we are doing.

        However - like you said -- this truely does not restrict the partial shipping.

        THanks!!!!
