Configure Print Setup for Stock Label Printing

In Fortix it is possible to mark and track each stocked item in the warehouse. This enables your business to easily label each item, scan and record usage of each item quickly and accurately and keep track of correct and accurate stock levels.

To enable this functionality, the printing needs to be set up and tracking needs to be activated in the PO transaction setup.

This article explains how to set up the Printer and Picklist for Printing in Fortix.
