Multiple Printing Setup
Sometimes we process batches by **** a pick list, and then run 4x6 shipping labels and packing slips at the same time (so they come out together - we have all our inventory laid out from the pick list, and then work through the combined Packing Slip and Shipping Label...
HOWEVER, there are times we want to run Packing Slips for a batch, pick those to a separate tote for EACH order (all the items look the same visually - hard to sort them from a pick-list pile).
Under this style of process, we then weigh and print the Shipping Label. (We 'burn' the packing slip which also prints).
THUS - it would be nice to define Batch Process Style (or option in "Process Batch") were we can click if we want JUST Shipping Labels or BOTH Labels and Packing Slips.
This should be a fairly easily over-ride with a check-box (???)
I second the suggestion that hflorders made. Our scenario is that we have stores set up for each of the companies we fulfill for. Most of those companies don't require packing slips because they can be printed in batches of set items. The issue arose because we acquired a contract with a company that will do various quantities of many different products and we need to print packing slips with the labels for that one company. We initially thought that it would be nice to be able to customize settings by store, but having a button to print each part separately as well one to print them together would also resolve the issue we are facing.
I agree, our scenario is:
I do fulfillment for a couple of different companies, one uses Fedex and one primarily uses USPS. For the fedex orders it's nice to print packing slips and labels at the same time using the batch feature and the label and packing slip option in the print settings. For usps orders, precise weight is required, so we print packing slips and the fill each order weigh and print labels as the final step, so the packing slips and labels are printed separately. It is kind of a hassle to keep switching back and forth in the print settings.
It would be really awesome if on the batch pop-up window where the buttons for printing labels and seperate button for printing packing slips there would be another button to print labels and slips together. Then you could leave the default print setting at labels only, then for batches, you could click the button to print labels and slips together right from the batch popup. Thanks for considering this feature, as it would be very convenient.
