Set up a work pool
Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3
This topic applies to features in the Warehouse management module. It does not apply to features in the Inventory management module.
You can use work pools to organize work into groups. For example, you can create a work pool to classify work that occurs in a particular warehouse location. For all work types except counting, you can assign a work pool to a work template. For cycle counting, you can assign a work pool to the following:
Cycle count plans
Cycle count threshold
Cycle count work by location
Cycle count work by item
When you use work templates to create work, the work pool is automatically assigned to the work. You can also manually assign work pools to work using the Location directives form. After a warehouse worker defines the menu items that will be used to perform work on a mobile device, the worker can scan the work pool ID. The work that is related to the work pool ID is then automatically assigned to the work user on the mobile device until all work is completed.
Click Warehouse management > Setup > Work > Work pools.
Click New to create a work pool.
Enter a unique identifier (ID) and a short description for the work pool.
