Order Based Module

Overview

The Order Based picking module is located within Skustack’s Picking tab.

Order-based picking enables you to pick items on a picklist, order by order. This is an effective workflow for orders with multiple items, as the items can be picked and grouped together by the warehouse picker for packing. Learn more about the different picking methods here.

There are four modes for searching orders:

  • Search By ID – Search for a specific PickList.
  • Search By Name – Search for a specific Picklist Title.
  • Search All – Search for all PickLists and filter by a specific product.
  • Search By Order – Search for a specific order on a PickList.
Products will only be available for picking when the orders are both In Process and Charged.
