Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations Advanced Warehousing: The secret of the warehouse worker location
Using Dynamics 365 for Operations' Advanced Warehousing application, each warehouse user becomes a location with a location profile that is taken from the warehousing parameters. This location is created behind the scenes when you create warehouses workers.
Why do we need such a location? When the warehouse worker is between a PICK and a PUT, the inventory is located in this user location. (You may consider the user location to be the forklift the user drives.) A little surprising maybe, but it makes sense and it normally works fine. See below for a few of those user locations, created automatically. The location ID is the worker ID. Notice the field "Location profile" with the value "Use." This came from the warehouse parameters.
