Benefits: Packing slips are very useful for high volume operations that support large orders.
After checking the boxes next to the desired orders in the Pack & Route dashboard, you are able to:
- Generate digital or printable packing slips
- Generate an exportable CSV file
- Mark as packed
1. Generating Digital or Printable Packing Slips

3. Marking Orders as Packed
Marking orders as "Packed" allows you to change the status of that order so everyone knows it has been completed. This enables multiple staff members to work concurrently while avoiding duplicates.
