Odoo 13 Community Edition


In Odoo, location is a particular space or position available for keeping track of stocks within the warehouse. It may be a shelf, rack, or floor, etc. A location is the part of one warehouse and it could be considered as the sub location of that particular warehouse. So it is not possible to link one location to multiple warehouses. Odoo allows configuring more locations with respect to the needs and demands of the users.

Odoo provides mainly three types of locations.

• Physical locations: It is the space within your own warehouse.

• Partner locations: Partner locations are the spaces allocated not in your warehouse. It is the location within a customer or vendor’s warehouse.

• Virtual locations: Virtual locations are the places where the product does not exist physically. They come in handy when there is an inventory loss.

For accessing the feature Locations in Odoo, activate storage Locations in the settings.

Go to Inventory-> Configuration -> Settings
