Purpose

Once you have created your Warehouse Locations, you can print the associated barcode labels to place on each location within your warehouse. This will allow you to easily find warehouse locations and scan them for actions such as moving, picking and putaway (on the mobile app). 

Setting up the Warehouse Barcode field on Warehouse Locations

When scanning barcodes, CartonCloud will check both the Warehouse Location's "barcode" and "name" fields.

If no match is found on the "barcode" field, then the "name" field is used.

Configuring a Warehouse that doesn't have Barcodes

If your warehouse doesn't currently use barcodes, then you can follow the below steps to set the locations up with barcodes.

  • In the name column, select the cell in the first row of warehouse locations. Hold down CTRL + SHIFT + down arrow. This will highlight the whole column down from the first cell you selected. 
  • Copy the data.
  • Paste the data in the barcode column

  • Save the file. 
  • Navigate back to the Warehouse Locations page. Select More>Import XLS.
  • Select the file and click Upload File

Configuring a Warehouse that already has Barcodes

If your warehouse already uses warehouse location barcodes, you can load the existing barcodes into CartonCloud. 

  • Navigate to the Warehouse Locations page, Warehouse>Warehouse Locations. 
  • Navigate to the Warehouse Locations page, Warehouse>Warehouse Locations
