Parameter: Automatically create a new location when automatically creating a chute

Data type:
Can be empty:
Can be set at the system level:
Can be set at the branch level:


If IMMS receives a notification from the LMS that an item has been sorted to a chute that does not already exist in IMMS, the chute is automatically created in IMMS.

This parameter determines in this situation whether a new location must be created to place the chute in.

If the parameter is set on “Yes”, a new location is auto-created and the chute is placed in it. The new location is set up as a sub-location to the location in which the chute’s sorting point is located.

If the parameter is set on “No”, no new location is created and the new chute is placed in the same location as its sorting point.

Please note: Changing the parameter does not affect chutes that have already been created.

Refer otherwise to the “Configuration of sorting points and chutes” guide.
