List Order Items
In addition to auto populating your order number on the label, it will also print a pick list directly on the bottom of the label. The pick list is based on order items/products and references each of the SKUs in your order.
NOTE: The SKUs and/or descriptions displayed on your label are limited to 30 characters. If your order items/products exceed the character limit then "..." will be displayed. In this instance you might want to generate a more detailed pick list for your order. Learn more about pick lists.
