Lesson 8: Estimate a Transfer Order Receipt & Calendars

Estimate a Transfer Order Receipt

Estimate a Transfer Order Receipt & Calendars : Order promising calculations are also used to determine when transfer orders are received at the transfer-to location. The program calculates the receipt date according to the following formula. Shipment date + outbound warehouse handling time + shipping time + inbound warehouse handling time = receipt date

The shipping time can be either the time associated with the shipping agent service that is set up for a specific transfer route, or it can be manually entered on the transfer header. Microsoft Dynamics Trade


This lesson describes how to set up the program to calculate working or nonworking days by using the Calendars feature. Working days are designated as the days a company is open for business, and nonworking days are designated as the days a company is closed, such as weekends or holidays. The designation of a specific day can vary from one country and, or region to another.

Estimate a Transfer Order Receipt & Calendars : Companies base their schedules on working and nonworking days and must acknowledge that business partners might operate according to different schedules.

Set Up and Assign Calendars

Companies can use the Calendar feature to calculate working days based on specific calendars. You can set up multiple calendars, each with specific working and nonworking days, and assign these calendars to the company and its business partners. The program then calculates order lines according to whichever calendar applies.

The program defines two types of calendars—base calendars and customized calendars. Base calendars define working and nonworking days. You can use customized calendars to create variations of base calendars for specific business partners. For example, a base calendar might list Saturdays and Sundays as nonworking days, and a customized calendar might list these days as working days for vendors who are open seven days a week. Additionally, customized calendars are used to record seasonal variations in work patterns.

The procedures for how to create and maintain base calendars and customized calendars are described in the “Calendars” topic in the online Help.
