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 three modes for searching orders:
- Search by ID – Search for a specific PickList.
- Search All – Search for all PickLists and filter by a specific product.
- Search by Order – Search for a specific order on a PickList.
