How do I assign a Location inside the warehouse e.g. Rack or Bin number?

I realise I'm probably missing something really obvious, but how do I assign an inventory item with a picking location inside my warehouse that I can then have appear on the packing slip?

I know I can assign a whole different geographic location, but how about which shelf number the item is on?

Same question. Is there an app?

I didn't find an off the shelf app, so I started talking to a developer about a bespoke one, which can be easily done. However, in the end I got around the problem by just tacking a location code on to the end of the SKU. It doesn't affect stock tracking and can be edited relatively easily.

In case you are still looking for setting up picking locations in your warehouse on pick list - we have recently released a solution on the Sheet Master app https://apps.shopify.com/sheet-master (currently free, screenshot of the pick list is below).

Users can set up custom shelf & bin locations, and generate pick lists in custom formats - happy to help with a custom setup in case you need it.

Hey @sufferkate you can utilize SKUSavvy for this task, which is free for 50 orders per month. It will provide you with a visual warehouse layout showing each of your bin locations, shelves, and areas within the warehouse on a map.

 

This map is used to show locations of inventory, as well as to assemble pick paths from the orders coming directly from your Shopify store. SKUSavvy intelligently arranges the pick path and provides a map of exactly where to go and how to most efficiently pick the products needed for a batch of orders.
