    Thank you for your feedback. I may have a solution for the specific scenario you mentioned about emails for address validation issues.

    Since addresses are validated when they import, you can create a rule where the criteria is set to Address Verified :: Equals :: Warning or Error, then set the action to email the customer's email address using a template you've set up for this specific purpose in your email template settings. This would automatically send an email to the order's address (if present) when the address validation fails, so that customer knows to follow up with you on correcting the address.

    Here are some help articles about automation rules and email templates to help you get started:

    Automation rules: https://help.shipstation.com/hc/en-us/articles/360026158331-Automation-Rules
    Email Template: https://help.shipstation.com/hc/en-us/articles/360037571571-Create-Custom-Email-Templates

    Currently, the automation features in ShipStation can only run when the order imports or when you click the Reprocess Automation Rules button. So you would not be able to make an action occur just by manually adding a tag to an order after it has imported. However, if you use an automation rule to tag an order (or, the order gets tagged because it contains a tagged product), you could create a follow up automation rule that uses the tag as its criteria to perform your specified action.

    While there is no option currently to truncate the city name, this is the type of alert you can automatically skip when in Quickship Mode.

    It sounds like you are talking about assigning orders or shipments to specific users. At any given time, order and shipment records can only be assigned to a single user.

    Making a small adjustment to the workflow might solve this for you. It sounds like one user would typically be working on an order first (the one who "cleans" the order). So the initial order assignment would be for that user. Once they are done with their tasks, they should then assign the order to the next user.

    This way, if you are limiting the user to see only orders or shipments assigned to them, both users see what they need to see when they are logged in.

    You might be able to accomplish what you want by using Order Tags and automation rules.

    Create the different tags you want to use, then set the automation rule to tag the orders when they import based on the requested service value. You can then either sort your Orders grid by the tag column or use filters to show only orders that contain a certain tag.

    With the Custom View feature in the new ShipStation layout, you could save the tag filter and simply click on the view you want to see, depending on what orders you want to process at the time.

    Review the following help articles for more details.

    Currently, the best way to do this would probably be to use Preset Groups, instead of to assign the package type to each product record.

    In this scenario, you'd create the Preset Group for each type of package that you have and then assign product records to a preset group in bulk.

    You could also accomplish this with an automation rule that set the service and package type, but this option would only work if you also were able to assign the service you wanted to use in addition to the package type. And, it would have to use a consistent criteria to trigger the rule.

    Thanks for your comment.

    Currently, the carriers determine the label format and ShipStation does not have the ability to deviate from the standards set by the carriers label API.

    Thanks for your idea, Devin!

    While this isn't a bulk option currently (only setting content type and non-delivery options are available as a bulk action for customs), this is a good idea!

    In the meantime, you might benefit from using Product Defaults to allow ShipStation to automatically set your customs declarations descriptions, value, HTS code, etc. If you've set ShipStation to create product records from imported orders (this is the default setting, so it's likely you have product records already), you just need to open the Product Details and enter the necessary values in the Customs tab (see image).

    Do this for each of your product records and going forward, ShipStation will automatically fill in the customs declarations with these values so you don't have to do it manually.

    For more details, review the following help articles...

    Thanks for your comment. Concerning the ability to mark products as not-returnable... this feature does exist in ShipStation. You would simply leave the "Returnable" checkbox in the product record unchecked. This will disallow returns of this item using the Branded Returns Portal.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    We will leave this open for votes and comments. However, there are no carriers that allow more than three fields for label messages, so it is not likely we'd be able to accommodate this request (ShipStation does not determine the label format - that is tightly managed by each individual carrier according to their specifications). But, there may be other ways to improve your workflow if we understand the business challenge a little better.

    Is your goal to simply not have to print packing slips?

    Adding support for bundled or kitted products in on our 2021 roadmap for Product Record improvements. We will update this and other related posts when we have completed work on this. Thank you for all your feedback!

    AdminShipStation (Product Owner, ShipStation) commented  · 

    Hi! Bundles and Kits are product types that we at ShipStation are always looking into implementing, however they present a unique hurdle in how products import from our varying partners. Basically, there's no "one size fits all" approach we could do for making bundles or kits for ShipStation products. Moreover, the only way that bundled items/kits can be supported from all of our integrations is for each item to be considered "one line item". These two factors make support for bundled items something that require a lot of research.

    We thank you for your patience as we continue to look into how to overcome this hurdle and allow for bundled items/kit support within ShipStation. And keep providing your feedback!

    AdminShipStation (Product Owner, ShipStation) commented  · 

    Hi! And to best document this request, which marketplace/selling channel are your bundled items importing from? And do you know if the individual SKUs are being imported into ShipStation alongside the bundled SKU?

    AdminShipStation (Product Owner, ShipStation) commented  · 

    Good idea, @Amy! We'll be combining the feedback here to a similar idea to make sure we have a single laser focused idea instead of having a few dispersed ones.

    Thank you for your feedback!

    We are currently working on this option for our Shopify users. If you’d be interested in trying out this feature, we can enable it for you upon request.

    Please contact our support team and request we enable the Shopify Line Item Adjustments feature.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminShipStation (Product Owner, ShipStation) commented  · 

    We'd like to provide a bit more information about how this feature currently functions. It is still in an early iteration, so here is what currently happens if the Shopify Line Item Adjustments feature is enabled on your account...

    ShipStation will reference the fulfillable_quantity field from Shopify when determining the quantity for line items and alert you if there has been a change from the last time the order data imported into ShipStation. ShipStation will change quantity of item(s) to match when you refresh your Shopify store.

    It will not currently:
    - Adjust the weight on the order to reflect the missing item
    - Remove line items with 0 qty
    - update Customs Qty (you must adjust manually for now).
    - Update Total Paid (but product total will update)

    NOTE: In ShipStation's new layout, the QTY will not adjust if items are split into multiple shipments already

    This feature is useful for those who fulfill some products outside of ShipStation, who handle partial refunds/partial cancellations frequently, or who edit orders within Shopify.

    Thank you for your feedback!

    We don't currently have a way to restrict a user to specific orders based on order status, but we are currently looking at several requests around user management and user permissions/restrictions and this request also falls under that larger umbrella. As such, we are also going to merge this idea with a very similar one, so we can keep track of the ideas and all the comments about it in one place.

    We do want to offer a potential work around for you in the meantime that, while not achieving exactly what you are requesting, may help you get a bit closer.

    You might consider using a combination of assigning orders to users (either manually or using automation rules), setting that user to only have "Shipping" permissions, and also restricting that user to see only orders assigned to them and shipments created by them (see attached images).

    To learn how to assign orders to users, review this article: https://help.shipstation.com/hc/en-us/articles/360026156911-Hold-Assign-and-Cancel-Orders#UUID-d913aa19-7d67-7120-9845-3fd7f86c86d7

    @DCRCTX - Thanks for that info! You should be able to tab through the fields but this may vary between operating systems. Perhaps there is a setting on your computer that will allow you to tab into textboxes and lists only like the Mac OS does.

    But if there isn't a system-wide setting on your computer effecting your tab behavior, have you had the chance to use Shipping Presets? You can customize any number of hotkeys (that aren't already in use by your browser) to apply weight and package dimensions. Here's how to get there: https://help.shipstation.com/hc/en-us/articles/205899808

    @everyone - Thanks for the updates! If you haven't added your thoughts on our last update, please let us know what works and what doesn't work today.

    @joesager - For a customer service role, I recommend having him use only the "Customers" page. That way he can search for orders by recipient name and see all of the orders for the recipient at once.

    Thanks for this feedback! We'd like some more information about your use case so we can understand your need a bit better.

    What kind of label do you want to apply and in what kind of circumstances? Once you apply a label, how would you use it? What is the business challenge you are trying to solve?

    ShipStation now has the ability to add the Inventory Location to packing slips with a field replacement. Review the help article linked here for more details: https://help.shipstation.com/hc/en-us/articles/360036064071-Internal-Inventory-Settings#UUID-80859c43-fd37-e08a-de86-5a164dde7950

    We are currently exploring adding the Inventory Location to pick lists.

    Thanks for your suggestion!

    We'll keep this in mind as we move forward with updating and improving the UPS Integration.

    As updating/adding features to an integration typically requires cooperation from both parties, we recommend reaching out to UPS and expressing your interest in adding this feature to ShipStation to help expedite this process.

    If you know of other users that have ideas for this, or come up with more feedback please don't hesitate to post it here!
    Thank you.

    @Emilie Fournier Jalie -- It's possible to modify your email templates to accommodate for this. It would require you to use a dedicated ChitChats email template and to apply this new template to your order before your create the label.

    When you use mark as shipped and fill out the tracking number, the tracking number would complete the rest of the URL. You would need to add this to your email template:

    chitchats.com/tracking/[tracking #]

    Thank you for the updates, @meldner and @rolando! I understand your workflow requires you to mark orders as shipped and the carrier list can be lengthy and in the way if you’re doing this often.

    It’s my goal to make sure we’ve gone touched all of the necessary bases (what works, what doesn’t work, why) so the product team will have all the necessary information to make a decision.

    The first thing is to take a step back and help me understand what's causing the main issue here: mark as shipped. For example, is there a particular reason why you prefer to use OnTrac for your mark as shipped orders instead of adding them as a carrier to your account? --Does this make sense? I'm not looking to change how you operate, I'd just like to understand it better.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminShipStation (Product Owner, ShipStation) commented  · 

    Right, your main methods of shipping are through OnTrac, FedEx, USPS, and UPS.

    You can connect each of these carriers directly to ShipStation by clicking on Account Settings > Shipping > Carriers & Fulfillment > Add a provider account

    Have you found specific OnTrac, FedEx, USPS, or UPS services that aren't available in ShipStation that's causing you to mark your orders as shipped?

    Hello!

    Thank you so much for voting on this feature and helping us continue to improve ShipStation. We are currently reviewing an integration with Pricefalls and will be sure to update you once we have made a final decision.

    As developing a seamless integration typically requires cooperation from both parties, we recommend reaching out to Pricefalls and expressing your interest in an integration to help expedite this process.

    Thanks again,

I wasn't able to mention it before, but we've recently released our Inventory Management solution which means two things: 1 we're want to improve it as fast as possible so we're sort-of busy on that front but it also means 2 we're also not as-busy as before so we can start looking into other ideas presented in the Product Feedback forum!

    As with all comments, we'll consider adding additional information regarding document formats for future releases.

    Hi, everyone! Thank you for checking in again! We’ve been busy working on bringing great features your way like Quickship, Ship-By dates, and labels without orders (check out the Release Notes!) with more great things to come so, as you’ve noticed, it’s been a little quiet on this front here. We read all of your feedback daily and reach out when more information is needed, so any time you have more thoughts or examples about this printing idea, please let us know here!

    At this time, I don’t have any updates for you as we are still researching this idea and the technical issues it presents. By voting and continuing to add your thoughts and comments, you’re helping guide the design of a solution. If we takeaway something from one of your comments, you may be invited to preview the feature before everyone else!

    Hey, everyone! Thanks for all of your updates, and thank you for checking in!

    Since our last update in September, in addition to our routine upkeep, new partnerships, and the recent 6 Weeks of Speed as mentioned by @critterandguitari, we've been buzzing like bees to revamp this forum and how we prioritize what's next.

    At this time, printing domestic/international labels to separate printers is still under review. While we are researching this--and all of the ideas in the forum--we read your feedback daily and answer your questions by the next business day.

    Any details you provide helps the Product Team design new features based on your business needs. We'll reach out to you if we need more information--or to see if you'd like to try out new features before everyone else!

    To keep the ball rolling here, how often do you receive international orders compared to domestic?

    While we agree the features are closely related, they're not the same thing, unfortunately. The over-arching request is, of course, "More print options" but there are so many different types of "print options" that it's near impossible to have a request like that and ever call it done.

    That being said, printing with two printers and allowing different print configurations/printers per user are technically two different things. In addition, the print configurations could technically mean that one person prints only labels 4x6, and another prints 4x6 packing slips and labels. As such, the requests will remain separate, even though we do understand the two are related.
