Background

Pick Lists can go a long way in streamlining your shipping process by making easier to retrieve products from your storeroom or warehouse.  Pick Lists can organize the products in the order that works best when pulling products, making easier to pick and pack orders for shipment.  This article will guide you through how to print pick lists for the orders you select.


First Things First

Pick Lists are available in version 6.1 or later.  You can check your version of ShipWorks by clicking on the Help tab and then the About ShipWorks button.  For assistance with upgrading your version of ShipWorks, please see this article.


The Process

Pick Lists can only be printed from Batch Grid Mode.  To switch to Batch Grid Mode, click on the Application Menu, select View Mode, and then click on Batch Grid.



1.  Select the orders you wish to include on the printed Pick List.  


2.  With the order(s) selected, click on the Home tab and then on the Print Pick List button.  

     Alternately, with the order(s) selected you can press CTRL+SHIFT+P on your keyboard.



3.  If this is the first time that you are printing a Pick List you will be prompted to select the Pick List template that you would like to use.  You can select the template that sorts the products in the order that makes the most sense for your location.  You have 4 choices:


By Warehouse Location

By Product Name 

By Quantity

By SKU


The template you select becomes the default template and is the template that will automatically print the next time the Print Pick List button is clicked.  (Learn how to change the default Pick List template.)


Select the template from the Pick List Template: drop-down menu.  Then, click Save.



4.  Select the printer to which you would like to print the Pick List.  ShipWorks will remember your printer selection and will automatically print to this printer the next time the Print Pick List button is clicked.



Once you select a printer the Pick List will be printed to the printer you selected.


Available Pick List Templates

Displayed below are examples of the Pick Lists templates available to you in ShipWorks.  Pick List templates are located in the Reports > Pick Lists folder in the Template Editor.  (To view the Template Editor, click on the Manage tab and then on the Template button.)


For each of the below examples the same 10 orders were selected in ShipWorks when printing the Pick List.


Pick List by Location

The items on the 10 orders are grouped by SKU and sorted by the warehouse location.

Pick List by Quantity

Pick List by SKU

What's Next?

Now that you have selected the Pick List template you would like to use and to which printer you would like the Pick List to print, ShipWorks will remember these settings and print this template to the selected printer the next time you click the Print Pick List button.


You can change which Pick List is printed when you click the Print Pick List button.  Click here to learn how.
