    Hey Sylvan Faber if I understand this correctly you're looking for a field to input some location or bin number that items which are ready have been placed into while the rest of the order is in production?

    Hello Cris, we are already using the internal order note for this purpose... We are more looking for a true automated bin reservation system!

    On the other fulfillment software we run (Linx from Brown Mfg), we first have to define how many reservation bins we physically have in the settings so the system knows what maximum it can use.

    Then, it is pretty straight forward, any first item of a multi-item order that get marked as produced gets an empty bin number allocated and reserved for its order (the screen display "place item in bin #"). Every other item from this same order (that can be produced in the next 2 minutes or 5 hours) will be routed to this bin until full order is complete and consolidated in that bin.
    When the last item of the order is marked as produced, the software display something like "order complete! Send to shipping station" and reset the bin number and mark it as empty and available for other orders that would need to be put in reservation.

    Let me know if you need any additional info or a demo ;)

    Sylvan Faber Thanks for the details. I was going to suggest using the notes field but you're already doing that. I could see how it would be helpful for the system to handle the bin assignment for you.
