Overview

Quickfilters are filters that work "behind the scenes" of ShipWorks. They aren't viewable from your main Filters panel, but help direct ShipWorks overall workflow. They are designed for every day tasks that you don't need to keep your eye on. These instructions will show you how to create a Quickfilter that contains any shipment with a thermal label.
