With the "Rental" module and the "Commission/consignment warehouse" module, all items that are currently being rented can be viewed in a list. The module serves as a supplement to the "consignment warehouse" module. To get there, click on the editor button in the position overview.
With the additional information on the rental period and a comment field in the order item, the "Commission/consignment warehouse" module quickly shows which items are still with the customer or which items are overdue.
Specify the rental date in the order
As soon as a consignment warehouse has been selected for the order, the rental period and a comment can be stored when editing an order item.
If the order is now processed via the logistics process, the order and its articles end up in the selected consignment warehouse. The rental data can be viewed again under App Center → Commission/consignment warehouse → Products.
Product tab in the consignment warehouse module
If a consignment/consignment warehouse has been specified for an order and the order is carried out until it is dispatched, an overview of all articles and their rental data from the order items can be viewed in the commission/consignment warehouse module under the "Product" tab.
Overdue articles: Shows all entries whose "rental date to" exceeds today's date. Continue editing articles.
With the curved arrow, the surface appears to continue this item as a calculation or to store this item again.
With the minus symbol, the items can be relocated from the consignment warehouse. The transfer mask opens with the filled in article and the quantity from the consignment warehouse.
If the shelf space is left empty, the article is posted to the temporary storage facility. With the "Next" button the interim storage facility appears. From there the article can be redistributed.
The rental data can be edited again with the edit icon in the row.
Rental items in the dispatch center
If a delivery note is processed with a logistics process via the dispatch center, the rental data is also displayed there for better allocation.
The preview shows the view of the document as a PDF. Print functions and other functions (browser preview functions) are also available here. However, the document should only be printed out here for internal use. The printout for customers should be done using the "Submit" action or an automatic picking process. In this way, a log entry is created showing when and how the document was sent. The print quality is also the best this way.
The log provides a complete overview of this order:
Direct links to
the customer number
linked documents (e.g. offer, invoice, delivery note, credit memo, etc.)
linked account statements
Protocol (only via the "Submit" function!):
When the order was sent
Who sent the order
Different versions of the order in the event of changes
Different versions of the cover letter for the assignment
Internet order number (e.g. from Shopware)
Billing and shipping address
