Before you can use radio frequency identification (RFID) with outbound items, you must:

  • Decide which items should be tagged with radio frequency identification (RFID) tags and the level of the tagging.

  • Activate the serial number dimension in the Tracking dimension groups form for the dimension group.

  • Specify 1 in the Per qty. field in the Number groups form to set the receipt quantity per number to one. Tags are connected to serial numbers so the receipt quantity must be one per serial number.

  1. Click Sales and marketing > Common > Sales orders > All sales orders. On the Action Pane, click the Sales order tab, and then click Sales order to create a sales order.

    The RFID tagging requirements are transferred to the sales order line, but can still be changed.

  2. Double-click the new sales order, and click Add line to create a sales order line.

  3. Select an item in the Item number field, and then click Inventory > Output order and create an output order.

  4. Click Inventory management > Common > Shipments. Create a shipment, click Show lines, and then click Add to add the item from the output order.

  5. Select a quantity in the Quantity field, save the transaction, and close the form.

  6. In the Shipment form, click Functions > Activate picking to activate picking for the shipment.

  7. Click Inventory management > Common > Picking routes. Select a picking route in the Picking route field, and then click Start picking route.

  8. Click Create picking pallet and enter the appropriate options.


    On the RFID tab in the Picking routes form, you must set the server ID and device name before you can read and write tags.

  9. Click Approve details to complete the shipment.
