In Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations you can use site and warehouse to deliver goods to your customers. They are also used to calculate inventory. You can set up site and warehouse for:

  • Customers
  • Products
  • Webshop

Customers

To set up site and warehouse for a customer, open the necessary customer and on the Sales order defaults FastTab, select Site and Warehouse.

Site and warehouse from the customer are used only:

  • If site and warehouse are not set as mandatory on the product.
  • If site and warehouse set for the webshop do not override those set for the customer.

Products
