What’s the difference between warehouse status change and inventory status change in Dynamics 365?

When the items in your warehouse are no longer available for sale — or items become available for sale  the change needs to be reflected in your inventory. In this situation, users can either take advantage of the periodic tasks inventory status change, or warehouse status change. What’s the difference?

Inventory status change Warehouse status change
Can change inventory status from AVAILABLE to BLOCKED and BLOCKED to AVAILABLE per item, warehouse, license plate and batch number. Can change inventory status from AVAILABLE to BLOCKED for the entire warehouse. Can change inventory status from BLOCKED to AVAILABLE for selected items.

How do you execute an inventory status change in D365?

Navigate to the inventory management > inquiries and reports > on-hand list page where all the inventories have “inventory status: available” indicating they are available for reservation.

Inventory Status - 1

Next, navigate to warehouse management > periodic tasks > warehouse status change.

Inventory Status - 2

When warehouse status change is opened, it will be blank. Select the site, warehouse and change status to fields. In this example, inventories in “Site: 5” and “Warehouse: 51” that have “inventory status: available,” will change to blocked. Click the <change status> button.

Inventory Status - 3

An infolog will ask if you want to convert status from available to blocked. Click <yes>.

Inventory Status - 4

In this example, inventory status has now changed to blocked for "Warehouse: 51."

Inventory Status - 5

The change will now be reflected when you navigate to the inventory management > inquiries and reports > on-hand list page. You will see the inventory status is now changed to blocked and is no longer available for reservation.

Inventory Status - 6

How do you execute a warehouse status change in D365?

To change the inventory status from blocked to available, again navigate to warehouse management > periodic tasks > warehouse status change.

Inventory Status - 7

When warehouse status change is opened, it will be blank. Select the site, warehouse and change status to fields. In this example, all on hand inventories in “Site: 5” and “Warehouse: 51” that have “inventory status: blocked” will be changed to available. Click the <details> button.

Inventory Status - 8

In the status change details page, mark change field for the inventory items you need to change from blocked to available, then click the <ok> button.

Inventory Status - 9

An infolog will ask if you want to proceed with changing all selected inventory from available to blocked? Click <yes>.

 

Inventory Status - 10-1

You will see two inventory statuses listed because “Warehouse: 51” has item M9200 blocked still, but the rest of the inventories now available.

Inventory Status - 11

These changes will be reflected now when you navigate to the inventory management > inquiries and reports > on-hand list page. You will see inventory status is now changed to available for all items except M9200.

Inventory Status - 12

Data has been a very hot topic among clients lately. Specifically, I keep getting asked: "How can I create a strategy and plan around my data?" Most people I talk to are working for companies that collect data at every turn of the supply chain. This data might come from heavy equipment machinery or e-commerce metrics or financial growth numbers—the point is, it's usually contextually diverse and there's a lot of it.
