Set up warehouse utilization

Back to top

Before you can relinquish items on invoices you'll need to setup FieldEdge to utilize warehouses and assign them to your employees. Use the steps below to set up the defaults to be used when utilizing warehouses.

1. In FieldEdge, click on Settings and under the People section choose Employees.

2. Now select an employee that will have a warehouse associated with them.

3. Under the QuickBooks Information section select the Default Warehouse to be used when this employee utilizes an inventory item on an invoice or part request.

4. Next, click the User tab for this employee and under the Mobile section choose the Item Warehouse Changes permission that will be used when this employee uses an inventory item on an invoice.

  • Note: If the Any Warehouse permission is chosen, this employee will be able to designate an inventory item to any warehouse. This is useful for a technician that adds an item to an invoice, but the item was used from another technician's warehouse.

5. Click Update to save your changes.

6. Now, click Settings and under the Company section choose Global Settings.

7. In the Expenses and Part Requests section, select the Default Inventory Part Request Items to Warehouse and choose to default part request items to a Specific Warehouse, or to default to the Warehouse for a Technician Adding Line Item.

  • Note: The warehouse chosen for part requests will default when a purchase order is created from that part request. You will be able to change this warehouse on the purchase order in QuickBooks if needed.

8. Click Save to update FieldEdge with your warehouse information.
