Is it best practice to setup each store as a site?

Posted on by 17


Just starting out on a D365FO implementation for retailer with 700+ stores.

Is it best practice to configure each store as a site as well as a warehouse?

Initial thoughts were to setup sites as regions / states, but have found that configuration such as default order settings where purchase orders or sales orders for a released product can be stopped only at site level and not at warehosue level.

Appreciate anyone sharing their experience / thoughts on this!

    Hi, everything depends on your business requirements. For example, for Show rooms type of business does not make sense to have a separate warehouse per store; for grocery stores - definitely, makes sense to have different.

    Hi Anthony,

    Wish you are doing well.

    Yes the best practice is to create every single store as a site and if do you have a backroom of every store better to create the backroom (warehouse) as a different site.

    This is going to help you a lot in the following:

    - Item transfer.

    - Stock counting.

    - Sales statements.

    - Sales reports as well.
