Ensure the product to which the workflow is linked contains the correct 'Default arrival/departure indicator' product setting.

Example: The Product AP SLOT IN has the setting 'Default arrival/departure indicator' set to Arrival

The ‘Supplier's order number’ field is available to add a Slot number.
