You can quarantine an item or a group of items. For example, you might want to quarantine items for quality control reasons. When you quarantine items, you can either create the quarantine orders manually or set up the system to create the quarantine orders automatically. A setup in which quarantine orders are created automatically is called quarantine management.

The following options are available for quarantine management:

  • The item is put in a quarantine warehouse when the item is registered in purchasing. For this option, the Registration requirements check box is selected in the Item model groups form for the item model group for the item.

  • The item is put in a regular warehouse or a quarantine warehouse when the purchase is updated by using a product receipt. For this option, the Registration requirements check box is cleared in the Item model groups form for the item model group for the item.

  • The item is registered in a location journal at a regular warehouse. When the journal is posted, a pallet transport is generated to move the item from the regular warehouse to the quarantine warehouse. When the pallet transport is completed, a quarantine order is generated. The pallet is then moved to a quarantine warehouse.

At registration, a quarantine order is generated. This order has a status of Started. The Quarantine management check box must be selected in the Item model groups form for the item model group for the item. Additionally, in the Warehouses form, a quarantine warehouse must be selected in the Quarantine warehouse field for the main warehouse that is used.

When you create quarantine orders manually, you do not have to require that the current item be set up for quarantine management in the item model group. In this case, there must be at least one quarantine warehouse. In the Quarantine orders form, on the Overview tab, you can modify the inventory dimensions. To specify which inventory dimensions appear on the Overview tab, click Inventory > Dimensions display.

Quarantine orders can have the following statuses:

  • Created

  • Started

  • Reported as finished

  • Ended

NoteNote

Only quarantine orders that have a status of Created or Ended can be deleted manually by pressing ALT+F9.

When a quarantine order is created manually, but the item is not yet put in the quarantine warehouse, the quarantine order has a status of Created. Two inventory transactions are generated. One is a receipt transaction that has a status of On order at the regular warehouse. The second is an issue transaction that has a status of Ordered at the quarantine warehouse. You can register or reserve items by using the usual processes.

By clicking Start, you can start a quarantine order that was manually created. Quarantine orders that are automatically created have a status of Started. The item is moved from the regular warehouse to the quarantine warehouse, and two inventory transactions are generated. One transaction has a status of Deducted, and the other transaction has a status of Received. At the same time, two inventory transactions are created to handle the return transfer. These transactions are not dated. One transaction has a status of Reserved physical, and the other transaction has a status of Ordered.

By clicking Report as finished, you can report a started quarantine order as finished. The item is released from quarantine but is not yet moved back to the regular warehouse. If you are using warehouse management, you can specify an item arrival journal that is initialized with the items for the quarantine order.

When a quarantine order that was reported as finished is ended, the item is moved from the quarantine warehouse back to the regular warehouse. The status of the item transaction is set to Sold at the quarantine warehouse and Purchased at the regular warehouse.
