Automatic printing of Packing Slips for new orders
Because this original request I made for this was closed when an unrelated feature was introduced, I'm creating a new one.
I would very much like to be able to have the automation in ShipStation be able to print. This would allow me to have it automatically print all new orders that have downloaded, so that warehouse personnel know an order has come in when the printer starts spitting out packing slips. This is something we're used to having in a different product we switched from to ShipStation and it's the main thing we miss. With printing being done through ShipStation Connect now, this should be entirely possible too.
The other thing that would have be added is another feature that ShipStation really does need anyway: an indication of some kind that an order has already been printed. This would allow automation to "print all unprinted orders" as well as greatly reduce the possibility of orders being double-packed when more than 1 person is working shipping. We've had this happen multiple times simply because there's no good way to tell when an order has already been printed right now.
So, just to help us better understand, would this idea work best for you if it automatically printed whenever an order came in? So, say, an order comes in on Sunday at 4:00 a.m., it should print then. Or would it be better if whenever you log in to ShipStation and have it active that you would prefer to have the packing slips printed out then?
@shipstation any response?
Is this something you plan on doing? Any insight will help

This would be a great addition to the newly upgraded Shipstation...

So, just to help you better understand, we'd probably accept either method you suggested 4 years ago.

I emailed support to request this and was told to add it to the ideas forum. Well, it looks like I'm not the only one hoping to have this added as a feature! Unfortunately it looks like it's going to take a while. It's unfortunate that an issue with so many requests to add it hasn't gotten the attention it deserves.
2 things required that is holding me off using shipstation. I need auto update every few minutes and auto print packing slips when those new orders come in.
Otherwise, I have to do this manually and constantly throughout the day every day, which is a waste of my time and simply not possible. Otherwise, if I don' packing slips aren't printed so orders aren't packed!

This would be a nice feature. If the item is in stock and the time is before your cutoff then it will auto print the packing slip.
Any updates? This request was originally made in 2012. Shipstation responded in 2016, 4 years later. Well, another 4 years has come and gone. Don't you think it may be time to respond again? 385 votes as I am writing this.
Please implement this.
It would be ideal if when I print the shipping label that automatically printed the packing slip at the same time.

I would love to have labels printed automatically as orders come in!
Any updates on this? Is this something that is going to be implemented?

Any update on this feature??
Whenever an order comes in, it prints a packing slip. This however, will only work if shipstation auto imports orders.
I wish I could vote a billion times for this.
I see this thread is almost 4 years old. Is this something ShipStation is planning to work on?
Any update on this?

Would love to have this feature. For the packing slips, we currently refresh, then create a manual order for "PRINT HERE" and use that as our marker of where to print. Sometimes orders slip through if we don't refresh and click back on orders. Or if a payment processes late and the order slips behind our manual marker. Would be nice to either autoprint all the time, or be able to print everything not printed.
