How to: Generate a PDF when ConnectEasy is enabled

Created:   |   Updated:

ConnectEasy saves a tremendous amount of time by-passing the need to open your labels and other documents as a PDF before printing. However, on occasion you'll find that you need a PDF copy of something that you'd normally send directly to print. When that happens, you have a few options:

To generate PDFs as needed, but otherwise always print hard copies automatically via ConnectEasy:

PDFs of your purchased labels and documents are accessible from both your SHIPMENT HISTORY and the GLOBAL SEARCH page. 

To open a PDF from SHIPMENT HISTORY
  1. From anywhere in the app, expand the SHIPMENTS menu and select SHIPMENT HISTORY.


  2. Using the search or filters, locate the shipment for which you need to view the Label, Packing Slip or Pick List.


  3. On the far right of the shipment line, expand the Reprint menu by clicking Down_arrow_unpressed.png .

  4. Select the Label, Packing Slip, or Pick List option displayed with a paper icon.



  5. Your PDF label/document will open in your browser.

 

To open a PDF from GLOBAL SEARCH: 
  1. From the Global Search bar, look up your order by the number, name or tracking. Learn more.

  2. Within the "Actions" menu, expand the Reprint menu by selecting V.



  3. Select the document type you need which displays a paper icon.



  4. Your PDF will open in your browser.

 

To disable ConnectEasy and always access your labels and/or documents in PDF form:

  1. Navigate to the SETTINGS page, then select PRINTERS.



  2. Set the specific label carriers and/or document types to the PDF (Print a PDF file from your browser) option.  



  3. Save your changes.



  4. Your labels/documents will no longer be sent directly to your printer. Instead, they will open in your browser, where you can preview them before printing or saving to a file for easy data sharing.
