Mark as shipped only after it's scanned into the system
Mark as shipped only after it's scanned into the system. Need an intermediate status of "Label Printed". We get hundreds of orders each day and have the labels printed immediately. It is not easy to figure out which ones have actually been shipped and which ones just have the label printed.
Thanks for leaving your thoughts, everyone! We’ll keep this in mind; for now, please leave your votes and comments to help keep this discussion active. Being specific in how this would affect your workflow and how you’re currently doing it will help our product team to implement new features.

This would be a HUGE BENEFIT. We've had multiple labels printed that were not shipped and we were charged for. It creates a huge headache marking something as "shipped" when it's not - it even contradicts your videos that shipping follows a sequence of steps and there is a step in between the label being printed and the item actually being scanned to be sent out that is missing throughout the entire shipstation workflow.
This is the biggest hole int he whole shipstation system!
Yes, it would be really nice to know if a package is printed but hasn't been scanned in yet.
Would love this as an optional view

I would love to see this idea implemented, but I would add that this should be an optional (account-wide) setting that can be turned on if the user wanted, especially since all major carriers have different tracking statuses.
The alternative semi solution here would be to have a separate shipment-level field for label print status, and it should be on the Shipments page.
Great idea as well as the comment below regarding no movement!!!!!!

We are having a similar issue, is there a way to get notifications on tracking numbers that have no movement 4 days after postage has been bought?
