Transfer Orders

Key Concepts

Transfer orders represent orders for items (materials or products) to be transferred from one warehouse to another. These represent both a supply for the warehouse receiving the transfer as well as a demand from the warehouse where the transfer is initiated.

Transfer orders cannot be created manually in PlanetTogether. Transfer orders are imported values that are used to keep track of materials and other items during and after transfers between warehouses.
