Any update on this? It seems strange that such a core feature is left in the "We're waiting to see if anyone else complains about the omission" state.Brian Lewis supported this idea ·
Splitting items into separate shipments from the Order Detail view is available in V3 and coming soon!
One thing that I use the sidebar for ALL THE TIME that is very useful is preparing to ship batches of books. When I select multiple orders and I get a quick view of all line items and quantities for all selected orders, that's extremely helpful insight.
Also, the fact that I can't edit items in the sidebar (even for manual orders) is an argument for making this Split feature part of the Order Details page. Otherwise, I'd still have to manually add items and then split the order to handle the "bundle management" process that currently requires me to do such frequent splitting.
Sure—I'd be happy to be able to use the sidebar and/or lower pane for splitting orders!
Since these views are basically quick or "distilled," views of the order details view, and since you can manage most things about an order from the order details view, my personal opinion is that it should be available first on Order Details and then made accessible from the sidebar as a "quick access" functionality.
However, if you did it "wrong" by only adding it to the sidebar ... I wouldn't complain, because I'd still have one-less-click access to split the selected order. :D
I'm glad to see this is under review!
I'm not sure what the question about the sidebar is for—is that just a general question or related to this issue? I'd be happy being able to easily split an order from the sidebar instead.
On manual orders there's an "edit" button right above the line items list. That would be a great place for the "Split" function. Since you don't currently have a good story around "partial order fulfillment" (and in fact have instructed me to split orders in order to fulfill only part of them) being able to access this function more easily would be VERY helpful.
