How to: Set up your Pick Lists

Created:   |   Updated:

Just like labels, pick lists are a vital part of the shipping process. They keep you organized and make your process more efficient. Setting up your pick lists takes as little as a minute. Once you've made your selections, they'll remain your default settings unless you change them.

To set up your pick lists:

  1. From the SETTINGS page, click PICK LISTS under the LABEL SIZES & PRINTING OPTIONS.

    • Barcode Type: Choose the order number or item sku barcode you would like included on your pick list.
    • Output Format: Choose either Portrait or Landscape.
      TIP: this will affect how many columns you can fit on one page when you start customizing which fields to display.
    • Sort ByChoose how you would like the pick list to be sorted. You can sort by:
      • Item name
      • Item sku
      • Warehouse/Bin
      • Item Quality
      • Shipping Zone
      • Shipping Service
      • City
      • State
      • Country
      • Custom Field 1
      • Custom Field 2
      • Custom Field 3
    • Sort Order: Choose if you would like the sorting to be Ascending or Descending.
    • Group and Print by: Choose how you would like to see items grouped on the report.
      NOTE: making multiple selections will print a pick list for each grouping. For example, if you select Item and Order, one pick list will be generated in which all items are grouped products, and a separate list will be generated with items grouped by order. For example:
  3. Select which columns you would like to display on your pick lists. Click Edit to choose the data fields and customize the order of the columns.
