Warehouse locations [Previous | Next]

Admin tools -> Importing -> Warehouse locations 


What you need to know before importing warehouse barcodes:


Warehouse locations are not required in SalesWarp. However, if you are thinking of implementing locations, now is the time. Warehouse locations are something you would likely only import once. The location barcode format consists of six segments of one to three characters. The first segment is a prefix, and for consistency's sake, we recommend "$%". All locations in your SalesWarp system must begin with the same prefix. The simplest location would therefore be: $% You can use the segments to define warehouse zones, aisles, racks, shelves, bins, etc.


To begin, go to Admin tools -> Imports.


Select the "Warehouse Locations" tile from the import type menu. Click on "Choose File" and select your warehouse locations file to be imported. If you need a template for your import, you can download one using the download sample box on the right side of the page.


Choose your mode and warehouse (usually default), and click next when done.




Create and Update - will update any changes from the file for existing items, will add any new items from the file to the product database.

Create Only - will ignore any existing products in the file.

Update Only - will ignore any new products in the file.


You will now need to create a new mapping for your import.


NOTE: SalesWarp does not currently support the automatic mapping of fields. The data under the "Map fields automatically" will always have an x under field found.


Click on the create new mapping tab.


Now, match the fields in your CSV file to the fields in SalesWarp. Once you have all fields mapped (indicated by the unmapped column on the right side of the page being empty and the mapped column being full), click next in the upper right hand corner of the page.


You will now need to verify the data. To do this click on the verify button on the page.


If there are any issues with the data you will be alerted to the issues, and will need to fix them before importing can occur. If everything is correct, click on next to import your data. Your import will more than likely be placed into a queue. You can view the status of your import by clicking on the queue tab in the upper right hand side of the screen.


You have now completed the import!
