On the company level general settings can be specified that apply to the entire Produmex WMS add-On.
This includes the standard language (the language that is used by default on the thin clients, unless specified otherwise at the individual user level (cfr. Administration → Users).
Company Logo URL
A reference to the company logo can be added to the field. The path points to a shared folder which contains the company logo used on the login page of the Mobile Client.
The standard connection to the SAP Business One database (username / password). It needs to be set for reporting purposes.
It is also possible to define whether logistic carriers (pallets, containers, …) are stored at one location per warehouse (where they are stored after emptying) and what the standard quality status for logistic carriers is.
These global settings can be overruled on the SAP Shipping types.
Goods receipt requires suppl. ref
If the setting is enabled, the operator is asked to enter a supplier reference number during the goods reception process.
Goods receipt automatically prints item labels
If the setting is enabled, the goods receipt on scanner automatically prints item labels. The number of labels printed, is the received number of items. Otherwise the user is asked if printing is needed.
Use inventory returnable items on documents
If the setting is enabled, the returnable item added to the document will be the inventory item.
Note: Depending on the Use Perpetual Inventory setting of the Company Details window of SAP Business One, returnable items work differently in Produmex WMS.
Set vat group returnable items on documents
If the setting is enabled, the VAT group of the returnable item will be set when added to the document. For purchase this will be OITM.VatGroupPu and for sales this will be OITM.VatGourpSa.
Check to add returnable items
If the setting is enabled, the system will try to add returnable items when booking a document. To avoid this check this can be unticked.
Disable item selection in flows
If the setting is enabled, it will not be possible to select an item on scanner/touchscreen. The user will always have to scan a barcode to identify the item.
Pick list proposal allowed to exceed order
If the setting is enabled, it is possible to adjust the quantity of the proposal, so it exceeds the ordered quantity.
Do not lock stock on picking (picklists can be created even if no stock is available)
When proposals are made, stock is locked. If the setting is enabled, the system does not lock stock when creating the proposal. This means that there is no more check of available quantity, so proposals can be made, even if there is not enough quantity.
If the setting is enabled, you can pick more items than specified in the sales order/picklist. This can be done for convenience purposes, e.g. if an order for 14 items is received and the packaging unit for that item is a box of 15 items. In such a case, picking a whole box may be more convenient than opening the box and taking one item out.
This option is available for Picking, Zone picking, Multi picking and Ad hoc picking tasks Route and Pick List. Overpicking is not allowed when picking an alternate stock.
Allow overpicking (Customer collect)
If this setting is enabled, the operator will be able to pick more items than specified in the sales order/pick list in the Ad hoc picking – Customer collect flow.
Count colli after picking
As a further check to ensure the correctness of deliveries, it can be specified that the operator has to count and enter the number of colli that were picked and put onto a logistic unit (SSCC), which the operator wishes to finish. The system will then verify whether this number is the same as the number of colli it has recorded during the picking process onto this logistic unit (SSCC). The count is done in the inventory UoM.
When this is ticked, it can be configured how many times the user can enter an incorrect count.
When this maximum is reached, the picked SSCC is considered unpicked, and a new picklist is created for these items, forcing the user to pick again.
Embed .NET forms in SBO forms
If the setting is enabled, all forms run within SAP.
But in some cases it is useful if some screens are not embedded in SAP. In that case it is possible when you have 2 monitors to move certain screens outside of SAP on another monitor.
This can be done by unchecking this checkbox.
Some screens will be shown in the Windows taskbar, and will be outside of SAP.
Usability Improvement Program

By default, the setting is enabled and the add-on automatically sends information to Boyum IT about how the product is used. The information is used to improve the related features.
