(I am combining a few small things that all relate to Backstock)
* Ability to set a "Default" Location - We have a location titled "Next to Go Out" used for planning when we need to put a lot of bins to the floor, so it flows from Warehouse >> Next to Go Out >> On Floor. When adding a new bin to backstock, the default option is "Next to Go Out" - so if they aren't paying attention, sometimes they accidentally create new backstock and mark it as needing to go out. I would love a way to designate a default location, so new bins would be set to "Warehouse" by default unless they need to change it. (Maybe there is a way to do this and I just don't know how)
* Prevent Filters from Resetting - Sometimes I want to filter/sort to view a subset of bins, and take action on several bins at once. But as soon as I make a change, it resets back to viewing all bins/all locations, sorted by date. So then I have to reapply the filter each time. For example, I may have applied filters to view only Men's Long Sleeves at Storage and have searched for "PFF," and I want to mark 10 or so bins as "Bring From Storage." It will reset all the filters after I change the location of the first bin, and then you have to filter again to find the next.
* Expand Mobile View - Right now when you pull up backstock on a phone or tablet, you only see the Bin # and next action button, which was confusing for some of our staff at first who kept thinking that was the current location. Our employees would pull it up on a tablet, see "Next To Go Out" and put bins out to the floor, when really they are just bins in the Warehouse whose next action would be marking them Next to Go Out (or see bins they thing are supposed to be brought from storage, etc.). It may not be possible to squeeze any additional columns on the mobile view, but having a column for the current location might be helpful if possible, or maybe just labeling the current column as "Next Action" or "Quick Action" or something to eliminate confusion. :)
Thanks for everything you guys do to make managing inventory easier and more efficient!
