    My company have 5 showrooms and 1 central warehouse and HQ, delivery will be done by warehouse, showrooms only keep display items. How do I setup so that I can distinguish sales for different showroom and also keep track of display items for each showroom?

    I'm also confused with the organizations, if I create a product under on organization, can it be used for another organization to generate sales order? waht about BPartners for different Org, what's there relationship?

    Anyone can give me some advice.

    Thanks a lot.

      Hi,

      1. You need to define 1 warehouse per showroom so you can keep track of the items in each showroom
      2. You also define one organization per showroom so that your sales documents e.g. sales orders/invoices can reference each of the showrooms, however these items can be shipped directly from main warehouse

      But if I create a new product, which organization should I choose? the (*) Org or HQ? If I define a B.Partner as Sales Rep and assign to one Org, can this Sales Rep be transfered to another showroom? Please advice, thanks a lot.!!

      Usually when you define a new entity e.g. Business Partner, Product, it will save the record with (*) or (HQ), but this ultimately doesn't matter, you can use them for any of your documents notwithstanding the organization that you are referring to e.g. as in Sales Order.

      I created a new warehouse for one showroom under "Warehouse & Locators", but I can't assign this warehouse to the showroom under "Organizations", is there something wrong?

      OK, I get it, must create the warehouse under the showroom Org.
