Thanks for leaving your thoughts, everyone! We’re still reviewing this idea that has definite merit. 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.
@Zcolander. Hopefully they make this happen soon. That kind of flexibility would be a huge step for many businesses.
I believe Ordoro has this capability and i have been lobbying shipstation for this. It should be a simple fix.
We need to be able to change font sizes and positioning and it would be nice if we could input barcodes so the picker could scan the pick list and then the shelf to verify it matches.
@ShipStation. We use a custom picklist that prints on an 8.5"x11" sheet of paper that has 20 labels on it. Each label represents a line item in the picklist and they are in order of how they show up on the packing slips. We also include attributes from magento on the labels to provide the customers detailed information in regards to the product they ordered. The labels are used on each line item in the order.
Let me know if you have questions or need clarification. This is something I would love to see happen (fully customizable picklists)
@Mika Casey MMA Warehouse LLC – We’ve recently improved how we handle user feedback so it’s taking more time to understand and prioritize each active idea (Because of all the great feedback, we have our work cut out for us!), and the product and development teams appreciate all of your patience.
I noticed you’ve already voted for this idea, but for other users who haven’t found it here’s the link to the idea to sort your pick lists and packing slips by warehouse location: http://support.shipstation.com/forums/330429-product-feedback-fresh-ideas/suggestions/3022365
@jeffsilla5287 – You’re right, using order items export is not a good solution for larger operations if you don’t have available resources. I recommend looking into this only if you don’t have to deal with hundreds of orders each day and can find someone tech-savvy and creative enough to come up with a dynamic report.
@everyone – if you haven’t already, can you tell us what kind of customizable pick list you’re interested in. or what obstacles you run into today with the current pick list?

I'm just going to throw this out there because it seems so simple for Shipstation to do, but it still has not happened. It is probably a 10 minute coding change. Why can't Packing Slips 'Order Items By' Warehouse Location like Pick Lists are able to?
It would greatly improve picking for a ton of clients (like us) that don't use pick lists.
Thanks for the input, I'll play around with the order line item export maybe this weeked.
Full control and formatting of the picklist would be amazing. It would simplify many things in the realm of our store. Having the ability to format the picklist in any given grid format (for a sheet of product labels for example) and to have attributes able to be used as well that are imported for the product(s) on the picklist.
Not only would it allow further development of our actual store easier and one less thing to worry about there, but that it would be a time and money saving feature as well!
Hey @Nick Daniels Lighthouse LEDs! Thanks for checking in. We recently reworked some internal processes and are playing a very large game of catchup. The product team is still reviewing this idea among the many others brought up in this forum. Are you looking for one particular addition to the pick list or just more flexibility?
Something that might help you today is to use the order line items export on your Orders page (it's under "Other Actions"). This way, if you know some spreadsheet magic, you can pivot table your way through to a different type of pick list.
Is there any update on this? This would be an amazing feature to have.
A simple, fully custom, pick list would be ideal, similar to packing slips. We would like to import product attributes and format the pick list in to a 2x10 grid (per 8.5x11 sheet) for labels that can be used on the products. Being able to organize them by order would be essential.
Adding the batch # and number of orders would help with record keeping and tracking productivity.
Also allowing the bin location to be customized either larger or with a barcode would be good.
Thank you for all your updates, everyone! We read your feedback daily and any anecdotes or additional details on the current pick list functionality or what specific goals you have in mind for the pick list help us when researching features.
We also would like to see product options on the same line as all other information, so we can fit more line items per page. Right now we only can get 15 line items per page, could probably fit twice as much if the spacing of the pick list layout could change.
Plus, it seems that page breaks are happening at the wrong place. The following screenshot shows our pick list without images and order numbers and you can see the page breaks a line item in half, because of the size option going to next line.
Would love customized pick lists in general, but what I'd really like to see is a pick list for the entire batch that not only lists the items that need to be picked, but also lists the orders with those items in it.
The fields would be: SKU, ProductName, UPC, QTY and ***OHQTY**
Then, under the actual data for each, we'd have the order numbers listed as such with quantity per order next to the number.
Orders #s: 15000, 15002, 15004(3), 15010, 15015(6)
If you guys can make this happen we would dance down the street singing praises of your company.
This would truly take away a headaches for us.
**If we're going to chase dragons anyway, I guess we should bring a sword... DREAM pick list would also take the stockstatus field from Volusion and put the on hand quantity next to the qty ordered.
PLEASE SHIPSTATION YOU'RE OUR ONLY HOPE.

this is a great idea I love it

allow people to make changes to their pick list so they can customize it there self. This is a feature you need to have. Can't wait to see it thanks/
Yes, custom pick slip templates!
Ability to sort pick list by order vs product/sku
Ability to format pick list with any css/html
Ability use item options in picklist (by option number up to a certain amount of options) instead of having them in random order without be able to place them as needed on the custom templates
add batch # on the header and page # to print on all pages how hard that can be to do it. If you guys can not do this in record time all I can say bad news for you your competition will crush you sooner or later.
We love the idea of the Pick List, we'd just like it to be able to print it by different criteria, such as item name, location, etc..
We sell tons of miniatures spread across a large warehouse, so when it only sorts things by how many sold, it doesn't help as much as it potentially could.
At the very least, the ability to add custom fields to the pick list. We use "Custom 2" to pass a cable SKU, which matches the customer's existing hardware.
I need the ability to make the image larger on the pick list!!!!
