Create warehouse employees


Each user who performs warehouse activities must be set up as a warehouse employee and assigned to a default location, and potentially more non-default locations. This setup filters all warehouse activities across the database to the employee's location so that they can only perform activities at their assigned locations.

To perform warehouse tasks in Business Central, users must be set up as warehouse employees. To set up warehouse employees in Business Central, follow these steps:

  1. Select the Search for page icon in the upper-right corner of the page, enter warehouse employees, and then select the related link.

  2. Select New.

  3. In the User ID field, select the user that you want to set up as a warehouse employee.

  4. In the Location Code field, enter the location.

  5. Select the Default option for the location in which the user will process warehouse tasks.

You can set up a user as warehouse employee for more than one location. However, only one location can be the default.

If you quickly want to set up yourself as a warehouse employee, select the Add me as Warehouse Employee action on the Warehouse Employees page. This action opens the list of locations, from where you can select one or multiple locations for which you should be set up as a warehouse employee.

Based on the locations you selected, Business Central will create a line with your user ID for each location. You can now set one of these locations as default.
