  • 1.  Multiple packing units and pallet types for 1 article

    Posted Dec 06, 2019 02:01 AM
    Hi all,

    We are a chemicals company with multiple entities working with AX dynamics. we have enrolled Microsoft Dynamics in 2019 and faced already several challenges.

    We have the following problem at the moment:

    In our AX Dynamics it is only possible to link 1 packing unit and 1 pallet type to an article. when another type of packaging is needed or another type of pallet is used we have to create a new article (duplicate of the existing article) to select the other packing unit or pallet type.

    I was questioning myself if it was not possible to link multiple packing units and/or pallet types to 1 article instead of creating f.ex. 10 times the same article with a different packing unit.

    Thank you all for your help

    Was there ever an options for multiple pallet types for the same item?

    Thanks

    I don't know if this helps or not, but you can set up item specific unit conversions.  You can have multiple conversions for a single item.  Full disclosure, we have only ever used this on the purchasing side, and only for a few items.  You'll find this in the Product tab of Released Products in the Set up section.
