Inventory Locations on Pick List and Packing Slip are planned work. We assume the orders would have to be allocated first, or should all the item locations be listed? Let us know!Barry Dong Good Buy Kits supported this idea ·

I TOTALLY agree with Steve. When the actual inventory warehouse location is entered for a product, it would be great to have an option to use the actual inventory location for both pick list and packing slip.
This feature will not only save time for information entering (i.e. you just need to do it once for inventory location), but also displays the accurate and correct location for where the warehouse staff should go to pick that item. In fact, it is very common to store one item at different warehouse locations. If location A's inventory is empty, the pick list should move to the next inventory location (i.e. this is exactly how the inventory management is working). Currently it relies on the administrator to manually find the issue, and go to update the warehouse location. This is time consuming and easy to miss. If you have many SKUs and many orders, most likely the warehouse people will refer to the product inventory table directly, and discard the pick list.
As mentioned by David, this also saves our time for updating the records whenever an inventory's warehouse location is moved. This also happens at a regular basis. Updating two different places in the system, is less efficient and easy to be wrong.
More importantly, it will increase efficiency for all of us. When an order is cancelled, the warehouse staff could put the inventory back to the correct location, and the inventory count will be reverted.
The current system already has a rule to decrease the number from inventory count. I think simply displaying the inventory location on the pick list and packing slip will work.
Really hope to have this feature as it makes Shipstation's native inventory management much more friendly to use. It also makes the shipping process faster and keeping information accurate when an inventory is moved or depleted for one warehouse location. The end result is Shipstation's customer will love to use the system and stay with Shipstation for their busy E-Commerce business.
