Understanding Product Transfers from Pool

The pool temporarily holds unsourced product(s) from a canceled order or product from a customer return. The product remains in the pool until you transfer the product to the final location. You must remove any unsourced or returned product from the pool by Supplier Return, Pool to Stock transfer, or Pool to Garbage transfer.

Accessing Pool Management

The Pool Management window can initiate both Pool Stock and Pool Garbage transfers. It is best to use the Pool Management window when dealing with the pool because you can complete multiple transfers in one window.
