Template Designer - Pick List

Overview
Pick lists are used to ensure the most efficient use of time when collecting stock from the warehouse to collect multiple orders. They are ordered by BinRack location by default, but this can be altered by editing the table. For more information on editing templates, please see this guide.

Introduction

Pick lists are internal documents, but customisation is still encouraged to ensure that they suit the needs of your business. This could be by applying printing conditions so that certain orders are picked first, or by customisation of the pick list itself. Pick lists have two main configurations, that centre on how you wish composite items to be displayed.

Available Elements

All templates can contain Images, Labels and Variables. In addition to these, the following pre-defined Table elements are available for use in Pick Lists:

  • Order Items
  • Order Items granular

 Order Items

This is the default table used in a predefined pick list. This table, by default, will not display the Child SKUs of a composite item.

sub-table

A sub-table can be added to this table to show the orders that contain the item to be picked. Every stock item will still only be displayed once however, a smaller table will exist underneath each stock item, that includes details of the orders for that item.

Having a pick list that contains order information in a subtable means that the same document could also be used by packing staff, whilst still prioritising the sorting rules applied to the main stock item table.

 Order Items granular (No Composite Parents)

This table will display all items to be picked for an order, including Child SKUs of composite items. This table will be used as well for batched items as you can add batch information such as batch number, Sell By and Expire dates or Bin / Racks locations, etc. 

Having a pick list that contains order information in a subtable means that the same document could also be used by packing staff, whilst still prioritising the sorting rules applied to the main stock item table (eg: Bin Rack, Location, Batch Numbers, Dates or Priorities, etc.).
