"and" "or" rules for automation
Shipstation, it would be incredibly helpful if your automation system filters supported "or" rules. We use SquareSpace as our storefront and currently use numerous filters and actions for each operation we want to perform to the orders.
This is mainly because each order we receive can contain a variety of different products that need to be packaged in a specific way or that can't have certain items packaged in the same shipment due to DOT regulations. SKUs, Quantities and Weights, are all used to determine this. Sometimes, a customer orders an excepted quantity and no special actions are required. Sometimes a customer orders a regulated quantity along with an excepted quantity but these two items are incompatible with each other and have to be separated into different shipments. Sometimes a larger number of excepted quantities are ordered and therefore hit a maximum unregulated limit and now have to be treated differently.
“or” statements in your automations would allow us to create simple filters that build up to a complex action if items matched to our specified values.
The simplest example in a filter: Item SKU equals XXXXX “or” XXXXX
The simplest example in an automation: Apply this to orders that match Filter one, “and” (Filter 2 “or” Filter 3)
These are simple examples but adding this functionality would be incredibly helpful for building powerful automation scripts. Currently we built a bunch of filters and automations for each possibility. Its kind of frustrating!
