With the use of a barcode scanner, you can streamline your shipping work flow by efficiently packing your Sales Orders.
To start, you would need to have your sales orders in the finalized status with your products added to the Sales Order along with the quantity to be packed. Also, please ensure your barcode scanner is connected to your computer. Within the Sales Order select the Manual option under the Shipment option to initiate the Shipment.
Each time you scan an item, the quantity Qty to Pack will be increased by one unit while the quantity from Not Packed will be reduced by one unit.
Each time you scan an item, you can have a notification pop up on the top-right hand side of the page.
Once you are finished scanning all the items needed, click on Create to finish packing the order and marking it as Packed. You would then proceed to click Ship to mark the order as fulfilled.
You can also create partial shipments by clicking the Ship button after scanning only a part of the items needed to fulfill the order. This allows you to select parts of the sales order to be packed and shipped separately.
