You can configure locations in Sterling Store Engagement such that the locations that you have in your store are added to the system.

  2. From the application menu, select Configurations.

  4. Enter the location ID.
  5. Optionally, enter a description for the location and other details such as the zone, aisle #, and bay #.
  6. Select the location type.
  7. Optionally, enter a sequence number for the location. The system uses this sequence to determine the priority when assigning source locations for transferring inventory by products.
