when I ship paid orders, I have been used to print the list of orders’ SKUs (in alphabetic order) so I can go and pick sold items in the archive. However, I have mainly two problems in this process:
when an order contains over 3 items, the printed page cut the SKU list and so I cannot read the entire list of items’ SKUs in that specific order
when I have to ship many orders, I would find useful to export all orders data, so I can put in alphabetic order the entire batch of SKUs not deepening on the single specific order. In other words, let’s say:
- order A contains SKUs: A1, B1, C1
- order B contains SKUs: A2, B2, C1
I would find useful to print a unique list of SKUs: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2 (all SKUs in the real alphabetic order). This way I can pick items from the archive in a practical way. Otherwise, I need to continue running from one side to opposite side of the archive if the SKUs list is made order by order, and not with all SKUs together in a unique list.
I hope this is explained clearly (not sure…). Is there any trick to do this? It would be so useful for me…
Looking forward to hear good news from you.
Regarding #1: Do you use the “paint package slip” function for that? If not, it is worth a try!
It’s possible to create your own package slips, too.
Regarding #2: No idea how that could be done (in alphabetic order), unfortunately.
Hi @kristian ,
I don’t need to print the label to put into the order, I am use to print the list of sold items’ SKUs so I can go in the archive and pick them up. I click over the smart folder of paid orders, set the table view, sort alphabetically and then cmd-P. However, the list is ordered by the first SKU of each order, which is quite confusing because I need a sort of list of all SKUs to be shipped, regardless orders are single item or multiple purchase. That would be a huge help for my work…
The “Print package slip” feature most likely could be used to print a simple list of all SKUs of all selected orders, that’s what I was trying to say. This way you have a list of all SKUs of all orders.
From the help:
You can print packing slips that you can add to the shipment or use them to find the ordered items in your warehouse.
If you are interested I could try to create such a custom “package slip”. (alphabetic order probably not possible) It’s not meant to be put into the order/package, of course.
Ah, I didn’t understand. That would be awesome @kristian ! Yes I am interested, thank you very much!!
@kristian thank you so much for this, it literally changes my working life!!! Just a question: is there any way to set the margine of the print page? I mean, now the printer cut the last line, check pdf:
Sku list.pdf (23.6 KB)
Anyway, this is a huge feature for me and a huge relief considering I am planning over 4000 auctions for next 3 months and the SKU matter was a nightmare for me, when I have to prepare lots of orders. If there is any way I can pay off, just let me know.
Glad to hear you find it helpful
Unfortunately, there is not. Safari/webkit seems to be the only browser that does not support the required “@page” rule.
However, there is an easy workaround: In the print dialog, click on the “PDF” button and select “Open in Preview”. Once opened in Preview, print the PDF from there. This should avoid line cut-off by the printer.
unfortunately it didn’t work, but that’s not a problem,I will write missing line. You just made my work much easier!!!
