    ShipStation’s new layout (formerly called V3) does currently show when both labels and packing slips have been printed through ShipStation (either via ShipStation Connect or downloaded from the Print pop-up… if you use the browser print option, we cannot track the print status). You can see the print status in the Shipments tab by showing the Label Printed and Packing Slip Printed columns, or by opening the Shipment Details screen.

    We will consider the feedback around auto-printing packing slips when orders import, but there are a number of challenges around this approach that need to be overcome (for example, how to handle when the printer workstation is asleep or there is a hardware issue and printing is unsuccessful – ShipStation doesn’t have a way to receive that kind of feedback from the printer and it would not be desirable to show a packing slip as printed when it actually hasn’t…

    "for example, how to handle when the printer workstation is asleep or there is a hardware issue "

    Shipstation connect already handles this. So does the standard windows print manager.
    Slips would print when new orders are imported. There's no reason why that should be hard to implement.

    This is such a simple solution that Shipstation keeps ignoring for whatever reason when it's clearly one of the most requested features for YEARS.
