A warehouse location can refer to an entire warehouse or to a specific location in a warehouse. You can create as many locations as needed. If you are using location to refer to the entire warehouse, then you can leave the Area and Zone information blank.
If you need more granular location details such as rack or bin locations etc you can add custom fields to the warehouse location record and enter those there.
To create your Warehouse you will need to be in the “Warehouse Locations” tab and select New.
