    I am really surprised this is not an available action to have applied when processing automation rules.

    This would ALSO be a work around to the issue of not being able to use a decimal when having an automation rule "Set package dimensions"

    We need the ability to enter dimensions WITH a decimal point when creating an automation rule that sets specific package dimensions.

    WHY is it that we can use decimals in dimensions when creating a label, or saving product defaults, or using the calculator, or creating a package preset, but we cannot do this for automation rules?? If it's capable in some places within ShipStation, it should be capable anywhere that specifies package dimensions, right? This is seriously limiting automation functionality.

    -- And just like the ORDER FILTERS can be copied/duplicated. I would think this would be easy to integrate so not sure what we're waiting for.

    Hey @Alex, thanks for posting this! Printing gets a little tricky to talk about since there are a few different ways to set these up. What kind of formats/paper sizes are you looking to print for your labels-only, packing slips-only, and both label + packing slip?

    I strongly agree with this suggestion. I've been a user for 4-5 years.
    I, on a daily basis, need to re-print only the shipping label for an order; so I unfortunately am always throwing away extra labels because I already have the packing slip printed.

    I can obviously go out of my way to print it via browser or PDF and then print only the shipping label but honestly it's not worth the extra time & steps.

    For us, nothing would need to change in regard to document/label formats.. Our packing slips & labels are always 4x6, just needing the 3 options in the print button drop-down, as Alex Gierczyk mentioned --- Packing Slip | Shipping Label | Both

    Thank you for this feedback. We will be considering more automation around splitting and combining shipments in our 2021 roadmap.

    Auto-combining is a bit more technically intensive than auto-splitting as it requires certain data fields to be validated and matched, but we are definitely exploring how to accomplish this.

    ** We combine orders daily but there are some that we do not wish to combine.
    I think it would be great to at least have this as an OPTIONAL preference -- And if we could enable it on a per store basis.

    Reason being, we will almost always combine orders for our eBay store but we do not always combine orders for our Amazon store because, technically, each Amazon order should have its own tracking number; so depending on the items/value, the orders often remain separate.

    This would be helpful for products of a certain size/volume -- However, for us, too many of our orders with multiple quantity items will still ship together in one box if possible/practical; so more often than not, this would be counter-productive for shippers with many lightweight/smaller products.

    I do wish that the saved product dimensions would not be missing on orders where the qty exceeds 1 though.

    I don't expect the dimensions to be calculated automatically by any means, but it would save me a step if at least the dimensions saved for a single unit would be applied, so that I can just adjust it accordingly, rather than having to open the product details window each time to see what I have saved.

    We are currently working on a feature that displays the best way to ship (either based on best price or fasted delivery time). The goal is to show the best way to ship across all of your connected carriers.

    The next phase of this feature will include automation options. We’ll update this post when the development work has begun.
