A facility is a place where you keep inventory. It can be a warehouse, your office, or it can be a virtual place. You use facilities to separate inventories into different locations for reporting, shipping, and receiving. The application displays the current active facility at the top of the page. The facility selected at the top determines the facility is used when you are shipping or receiving inventory in the system. If you do not need to use multiple facilities, then you can use the default facility called WHS.
Facilities are set up from the Products menu. You can enter an address for the facility and set up different types of facilities.
When you are creating sales orders, you would specify which facility to ship the orders from.
When you are creating purchase orders, you would specify which facility to receive the orders in.
