How do you enable this feature if it is not listed in the Enable/Disable Features for an instance in trial mode?

Hi @dgodsill97  Hoping that below article will helps you on the Paperless Picking feature.

it does not: The functionality is available if the Paperless Picking feature is enabled on the Enable/Disable Features (CS100000) form and the new Automated Warehouse Operations Engine is in use.

 

There is no feature in 2021R2 to enable it not is there a switch anywhere to turn on this new engine that I was able to find.  The article references another article for developers to customize 2021R1.

I was able to locate the customization with some help from Acumatica. Please refer to the following KB article for the package

Turns on or off - New WMS Engine

The customization when published in 21R1 and 21R2 will expose a switch on the Inventory Preferences Screen, Tab Warehouse Management. 

The switch is labeled  Use Legacy Engine. 

To be able to use Paperless Picking you have to Uncheck this box. 

The new WMS Engine will be mandatory starting in 22R1.

For customers with data, they will continue to use the old WMS Engine, after the upgrade.

For new customer s the default will be the New WMS Engine. 

 

After you publish it, and change the setting as desired. 

Then go to Apply Updates and under the three dots Select Reset Caches.

Then go to Enable Features and check to see if you can now see Paperless Picking. Under Warehouse Management» Fulfillment.    

Once you have changed the switch Acumatica advised to unpublish the customization and removed.

When you do this the switch in Inventory Preferences  Tab Warehouse management will no longer be visible. But the system will keep the setting you set.

Do Acumatica customers still need to buy the WMS software add-on?

After publishing the customization in 2021R1 and resetting the Caches the inventory preferences show the switch but the feature does not appear to be available. There is no column for WMSPaperlessPicking in FeaturesSet.

Because there is no Paperless Picking feature in 2021 R1.

Hello everyone,

Please refer to the following article for the instructions. Sorry for the delay with posting it

I’ve removed the package posted here previously. Thought it is still identical to what we provide via support cases, it was done out of the security concerns (no offense @mcraig95 we know you’ve shared the package out of best intentions).

In general, when downloading anything which is claimed to be provided by Acumatica Support, make sure that it is indeed posted by Acumatica team member. Remember that customizations could potentially dangerous things, for example upgrade scripts that could potentially ruin your data.
