Most warehouses need to handle customer returns. It is possible to process returned goods by simply treating it as a normal inbound transaction. But Ongoing WMS also allows you to process a return transaction using the same order which was originally used to ship the goods to the customer. This increases traceability and allows you to see at a glance what a particular customer has returned. In this tutorial we show you how to process such a return. For a complete overview of all the return alternatives please see the article about returns in Ongoing WMS..
Processing a return
Navigate to Order ⇒ Order list. Here you can find the order which you want to use to process the return. There are possibilities to search for almost any attribute of the order; order number, tracking number, customer etc. Select and then press Return:
A new window appears where you can see all the goods which have been delivered on this order:

Press Return goods to perform the transaction. You can verify that the transactions have gone through by looking under Returned goods:
You can view all return transactions in Goods flow ⇒ Goods transactions. Simply filter for transactions with type Return:
Notifying goods owners of returns
Some goods owners want to be notified of all returns. You can easily set up an automatic email which is sent every day to the goods owner which contains all returns.
