Create a consignment replenishment order

This topic explains how to create a consignment replenishment order where you can track the expected delivery from a vendor into your consignment inventory. It also shows how to record a receipt of products so that the consignment inventory is registered as on-hand inventory owned by the vendor. This procedure would typically be done by a procurement professional. You can use this guide in demo data company USMF. This procedure is for a feature that was added in Dynamics 365 for Operations, version 1611.
