Edit on GitHub

The topic describes how to create warehouses in the Back Office.

Prerequisites

To start working with warehouses, go to Administration > Warehouses.

Review the reference information before you start, or just look up the necessary information as you go through the process.

Creating warehouses

To create a warehouse:

  1. On the Warehouses page, in the top right corner, click Create Warehouse. The Create warehouse page with two tabs opens: Configuration and Store relation.
  2. In the Configuration tab, do the following:
    • Name: Enter the name of the warehouse you want to create.
    • Is this warehouse available?: Select Yes if you want to make your warehouse available (active) or No if you want to make your warehouse unavailable (inactive).
  3. (optional) Switch to the Store relation tab. By default, the warehouse you are creating will be available for all the stores you have. To make your warehouse unavailable for specific store, clear the checkbox for those stores.
Note

If you clear all checkboxes for stores assigned to a specific warehouse, this warehouse won’t appear on the Edit Stock page.

  1. To keep the changes, click Save. This redirects you to the Warehouses page where you can see the new warehouse in the table and the following message: ‘Warehouse has been successfully saved’.
