There are 2 sections to the 'Orders' function:
1. Order Validation
This function serves 2 purposes.
It can be used as an order verification or QC function, allowing you to scan an order number and then scan the items to ensure what has been picked is correct.
This can be useful as an additional step between picking and packing and in conjunction with the StoreFeeder printed Packing List
It can also be used as a way of doing a barcode despatch if you pick order by order.
If you pre-generate you labels within StoreFeeder, when you use this function you can select to print the shipping label and to mark the orders as despatched.
When entering the page, simply scan the order number barcode printed on either the Packing List or on an invoice (if you are picking order by order). This will open the screen above.
Once this page is open, simply scan all the items on the order, no need to pause to await verification, simply scan.
If an incorrect item is scanned a warning will appear and the handset will vibrate.
As you are scanning, the qty validated will increment on the screen and when all items are scanned, the validation will be complete and the label will print (if pre-generated)
The user will then be asked if the order is to be despatched.
*Please note* - You cannot mark the order as despatched unless the label is printed at this stage.
2. Quick Despatch Orders
This function is simply a quick way to print a label for an order and mark it as despatched on the StoreFeeder system. To use this, orders must be either have the labels "Pre-generated", or the order must be "Pre-Despatched".
Simply scan or enter the order number and click "Despatch" and the order will despatch and the label will print on the printer associated to the PDA device.
- While you are scanning items on a multiple SKU order, the SKU's will move on screen into "Validation Complete" and "Validation Outstanding" sections.
- If you scan or enter an order that is already verified, you will see who did this and when on the screen. Useful in the event of any issues in the future.
Hints & Tips
- If you cannot scan a barcode (damaged or missing) then clicking the validation status icon on the appropriate SKU will allow you to override the scan feature.
- If you need to reprint a shipping label (label jam etc), then you can click the 3 dots in the top bar and there is an option to reprint the shipping label for this order. You can also mark the order as despatched here if desired as well as do the printer setup for the label printing
