So, just to help us better understand, would this idea work best for you if it automatically printed whenever an order came in? So, say, an order comes in on Sunday at 4:00 a.m., it should print then. Or would it be better if whenever you log in to ShipStation and have it active that you would prefer to have the packing slips printed out then?Daniel Kauffman Popular Patch commented
Add two automation rule actions, one to "Print Packing Slip" and one to "Print Label". Each of these actions would have a drop-down menu allowing selection of the target printer. The list of possible printers would include all of the printers configured and shared via ShipStation Connect.
Using automation rule actions has a lot of benefits, such as allowing packing slips and labels to be printed to specific printers. For example, priority orders could be printed to a dedicated printer for priority processing.
Ideally, the automation rule actions would print packing slips and labels automatically whenever the automation rule is triggered, not just when the order is first imported into ShipStation.
We're fine with orders printing in the middle of the night or over the weekend. It works better in fact, because the printer doesn't overheat when printing out orders on Monday morning. And the warehouse team has something to do when they arrive each morning, without having to manually print everything before getting started.Daniel Kauffman Popular Patch supported this idea ·
