This topic applies to features in the Inventory management module. It does not apply to features in the Warehouse management module.

When items arrive in the inbound dock, the Arrival overview form is used to match the information accompanying the items with the information in Microsoft Dynamics AX. The settings can be saved per user and per computer so that users can have their personal settings on each computer that is located in the inbound dock. One user can have multiple setups.

For example, a user could customize to filter on the current warehouse or on all receipts expected today.

A few example customizations are included. In the Setup name field in the Display options area, you can select Today to filter on receipts expected today; Inquiry is intended to be an inspiration to filter on whatever options are relevant in the situation; Options used is a default that cannot be overwritten or deleted.

  1. Click Inventory management > Periodic > Arrival overview.

  2. On the Setup tab define settings for:

    • Arrival journals − The journal name to use and which warehouse and location to register receipts. A journal name must be specified. If a warehouse and location are not specified, the information about the lines is used.

    • Data updates – If the form should update automatically when it is opened, select the Update on startup check box. If updates should be automatic when values are changed for Range on the Overview tab, select the Update on range change check box.

    • Transaction types display – Under Transaction types shown, select the transaction types to show in the list of receipts.

For more information about the options in the form, see Arrival overview (form).

Settings in Setup tab and Range settings on the Overview tab are saved as default settings under Options used when you close the form. To save the settings under a different name, click the Modify... button on the Setup tab, and then click Save.
