Printing Packing Lists

A packing list is a report that is printed for identifying all the items that are to be included in a shipment.  Packing lists can be used to gather items for shipments and can be included with the shipment to provide shipping information to the recipient.

 

Different people prefer different styles, therefore, a selection of packing lists have been included.  In addition to choosing the style, you can also set a message that will be included on the packing list.   You can choose a specific packing list printer to print a packing lists on a printer that is different from the default printer.

 

Once printed, the packing list will be flagged so it doesn't get accidentally printed again.  The flag can be manually turned on or off if needed.

 

To have more control over your packing lists, you can create new, rename, delete, reset and even edit packing lists with the manage packing list feature.

 

There are several ways to print a packing list.  They can be printed from:
