Shelf Labels In Dynamics 365 For Finance and Operations

Shelf label is nothing but labels to put on a rack or a shelf where an item is stored. These labels are printed and put on store rack or shelf.  For example, when you go to a supermarket you can see labels are displayed with various information where the product is stored.
These labels have different information about the product such as
  • Product nameSize
  • Color
  • Price
  • Discounted price / Promotional price
  • Barcode (To scan the item information)
These shelf label is used in the retail where we have different stores where items are store for sell. 
When these labels are printed?
When price or comparison price of the product is changed in any store then label goes for printing (if Shelf label report is assigned to the item) in the shelf label print queue.
Labels can also be printed manually for an item or for the entire item category. 
You can also generate shelf labels for products that are included in purchase orders, transfer orders and from released products
