Configure promoted fields for steps in the Warehouse Management mobile app

Important

The features that are described in this article apply only to the new Warehouse Management mobile app. They don't affect the old warehouse app, which is now deprecated.

This article describes how to promote and highlight specific information for any step in the task flows for the Warehouse Management mobile app. This capability can help focus workers' attention on the most important fields as they work through a flow. For each step in every process, admins can select which fields to promote and which fields to highlight.

Enable promoted fields in your system

Before you can set up promoted fields, you must complete the following procedure to enable the required features and generate the required field names in the Warehouse Management mobile app.

  1. Go to System administration > Workspaces > Feature management.

  2. Make sure that the Warehouse app step instructions feature is turned on for your system. As of Supply Chain Management version 10.0.29, this feature is turned on by default. For more information about the Warehouse app step instructions feature, see Customize step titles and instructions for the Warehouse Management mobile app. This feature is a prerequisite for the Warehouse app promoted fields feature.

  3. Enable the feature that is listed in the following way:

    • Module: Warehouse management
    • Feature name: Warehouse app promoted fields

    This feature is the feature that is described in this article.

  4. Update the field names in the Warehouse Management mobile app by going to Warehouse management > Setup > Mobile device > Warehouse app field names and selecting Create default setup. For more information, see Configure fields for the Warehouse Management mobile app.

  5. Repeat the previous step for each legal entity (company) where you use the Warehouse Management mobile app.

Configure promoted fields from a menu-specific override

Use the following procedure to set up promoted fields.

  1. Create a menu-specific override for the relevant menu and step as described in Customize step titles and instructions for the Warehouse Management mobile app.

  2. Find the combination of Step ID and Menu item name values that you want to edit, and then select the value in the Step ID column.

  3. On the page that appears, on the Select promoted fields FastTab, select Select fields on the toolbar.

  4. In the Promoted fields dialog box, select the fields that you want to promote. You can also highlight up to two of the selected fields. Highlighted fields will be shown in bold in the Warehouse Management mobile app. As you select fields, consider the fact that some screens might be large enough to show only the top one or two promoted fields. For an example that shows how to use these settings, see the scenario later in this article.

    Note

    The Available fields list is limited to the fields that can appear for the menu item. However, other factors (such as item composition) determine whether a field actually appears in the Warehouse Management mobile app. If you've configured promoted fields, only the selected fields will appear on the main page of the Warehouse Management mobile app. However, workers can still view the remaining fields by tapping on the details page.

  5. Select OK to apply your settings. Your selected fields are now listed on the Select promoted fields FastTab.

Example scenario

Enable sample data

To use the specified sample records and values to work through this scenario, you must be using a system where the standard demo data is installed. You must also select the USMF legal entity before you begin.

Configure sales picking with promoted steps on the license plate step

In this procedure, you will set up promoted and highlighted fields for the Sales picking menu item in the license plate step.

  1. Go to Warehouse management > Setup > Mobile device > Mobile device steps.

  2. Find the step ID that is named LicensePlateId, and select it.

  3. On the Action Pane, select Add step configuration.

  4. In the drop-down dialog box, use the Menu item field to find and select Sales picking.

  5. Select OK.

  6. The details page for the override that you just created appears. On the Select promoted fields FastTab, select Select fields on the toolbar.

  7. In the Promoted fields dialog box, you can select the fields to promote and highlight. In the Available fields list, find and select the following fields, and use the buttons to move them to the Selected fields list:

    • Location
    • Item
    • Product name
    • Inventory status
  8. Use the up arrow and down arrow buttons to customize the order of the fields in the Selected fields list. In the Warehouse Management mobile app, the fields will appear in the order that you set here.

  9. Select the Location field, and then select Highlight.

  10. Select OK to save the configuration.

View the promoted fields in the Warehouse Management mobile app

In this procedure, you will open the Warehouse Management mobile app and go through the steps to view the fields that you promoted and highlighted in the previous procedure.

  1. In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management, create a sales order that will require a pick step to pick from a location that is license plate tracked. Then release the sales order to the warehouse. Make a note of the work ID that is generated.
  2. Open the Warehouse Management mobile app, and sign in to warehouse 24. (In the standard demo data, sign in by using 24 as the user ID and 1 as the password.)
  3. Select the Outbound menu, and then select the Sales picking menu item.
  4. Follow the data entry instructions on the screen to enter the work ID that was generated in step 1.
  5. On the step that contains the text Scan a license plate, you should see the changes that you made on the details page. The fields appear in the order that you set for the promoted fields, and the Location field is shown in bold.
