Step 1 - Select layout to edit

First of all, select the bin layout you would like to change. When configuring the bins for the first time, opt for the bin without any dividers. If you later realize that you don't require as many 8-split bins, for instance, you can reconfigure them into different layouts.

Note that the 'available compartments’ overview (number below the bin types) indicates the number of empty bins remaining in that particular layout.


You can configure any empty bin. If you want to change the layout of a bin with content, you first need to empty the bin and update the amount of products. After that you can change the layout and store the items again.

Step 2 - Select the new layout

After you have selected the bin type you want to change, select the new layout of the bin. 


Click 'Confirm layout > add the number of bins to configure > Confirm. 


The system will now start to retrieve the requested empty bins from the grid, and deliver them to the port.


Step 3 - Add or adjust the bin dividers

When the bin is retrieved, add the bin dividers as per the new layout, and click ‘Send bin back’. A new bin will be presented in port. 


When all the requested bins have been configured, the green button will show 'Finish'.
