Parameter: Automatically create a new location when automatically creating a sorting point

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 at a sorting point that does not already exist in IMMS, the sorting point is automatically created in IMMS.

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

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

If the parameter is set on “No”, no new location is created and the new sorting point is placed directly at the branch’s root.

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

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