    Hello,
    Is anyone aware if there are data entities for pick-registering for shipments and what they are?

    Unfortunately I've never found one for this info. I've posted in this forum before that I would also dearly love an entity for Delivery Notes (CustPackingSliptrans) but no joy from MS yet.

    We have had a custom data entity coded to export stock transactions which captures the basic inventory details for picking & shipments.

    Thank you Jonathan.  It's been surprising to me as well considering how many great entities MS has published for managing processes via integration.  In my case I have a very nice web front end from our previous ERP and I would like to convert it over to utilize OData entities from Dynamics.

    Hey Scott. We are implementing some sales processes currently. Our partner says that data entities for pick list registration do not exist. They suggested that we add a customization so we can integrate our standalone WMS until we can implement native warehouse management.

    We are using Data Masons EDI, and I think they have a pick list registration for the EDI documents that come from the external warehouses. We are considering setting up our own warehouse to send EDI documents to D365 for pick list registration instead of customizing and creating a new entity.

    Have you found anything that says otherwise yet?

    So far I haven't found any information outside what you described.  I have been able to analyze the way the picking form operates and have a good map of the classes and methods the form uses however so I hope to be able to create a data entity at the least.  As I create solutions like these I would love to have a place to post about them to help others that are having similar issues and to be able to research other people solutions but I haven't found anywhere like that yet.
