The Packing Slip that is printed for an Order is based on a Packing Slip Template. There are predefined Packing Slip Templates available in Infoplus, but you can also create your own. NOTE: If you need to create a Packing Slip Template that is similar to another template, we recommend using the Duplicate action (instructions below).


This support article describes how to:

  3. Enter a Name for the Packing Slip Template.

  4. Select the Line of Business (LOB) where this Packing Slip will be used.

  5. Select a Packing Slip Layout from the drop-down menu (i.e., Standard Packing Slip 8.5 x 11). This layout dictates placement of content on the packing slip.

  6. In the Explode All Kit Contents fields, select True to display all SKUs in the kit or False to display one line for the kit.

  7. If an order will ship in multiple cartons, select True to print one Packing Slip per carton (will only contain the items in that carton), or False to to print one Packing Slip showing items for all cartons that make up the order. 

  8. Enter text into the appropriate Text fields. Remember, you are typing text into the Packing Slip Template, so it will appear for all orders using this template.
    - Marketing Text: Text typed here will display where specified in a Message Section (further down the window). You will need to select "Marketing Message" in the "Field #" drop-down menu for the appropriate Message section. Sample Marketing Text: "We appreciate your business."
    - Satisfaction Text: Text typed here will display where specified in a Message Section (further down the window). You will need to select "Satisfaction Guarantee" in the "Field #" drop-down menu for the appropriate Message section. Sample Satisfaction Text: "Please contact us if you are not 100% satisfied with your order."
    - Substitution Foot Note: Text typed here will display if a SKU substitution occurred. Sample substitution text: "Your order contained items that are currently out of stock. We were able to substitute like items at no cost to you.")

  9. In the Line Items section, edit the default selections as needed.
    - In the Line Item Sort field, select how you want items sorted on the packing slip (i.e., by SKU, Location, Pick Position).
    - In the Line Item SKU Field, select how you want the SKU to display (i.e., Item SKU, UPC, Vendor SKU, etc.).
      NOTES:

      --- The column name displayed on the Order Invoice will always be “SKU”.

      --- If you have created any Custom Fields for Items, these fields will appear in the list of options. If the Custom Field for an ordered Item is empty, the SKU value will appear on the Order Invoice.

    - In the Line Item Description Field, select which description (Packing Slip Description, Item Description, Full Description, etc.) should be used as the main description for each line item on the packing slip. This information is pulled from the Item record. Here is a screenshot of an item record showing the three Description fields that contain descriptive text. 


      --- If you select Item Description, the "Item Description" from the Item record will appear on the Packing Slip.
      --- If you select Full Description, the "Item Description" AND "Additional Description" from the Item record will appear on the Packing Slip.
      --- If you select Packing Slip Description, the "Packing Slip Description" from the Item record will appear on the Packing Slip. NOTE: If you select Packing Slip Description and the field is blank in the Item record, the description will default to Item Description. 

      --- The following options are also available:

            - If you select Vendor SKU, the “Vendor SKU” from the Item record will appear on the Packing Slip.

            - If you select UPC, the “UPC” from the Item record will appear on the Packing Slip.
            - If you select Product ID Tag, the Product ID that was assigned during allocation will appear on the Packing Slip. See Create and Use a Product ID Tag Scheme for more information.  

            - If you have created any Custom Fields for the Item, these fields will also appear in the list of options for use on the Packing Slip.


    Optionally, in the additional Line Item Description Fields numbered 2 through 8, select further descriptions that should also appear on the Packing Slip. These descriptions will be provided on separate lines beneath the main Line Item Description Field.

    - Label fields display the text you type as a header for the section.
    - Label # fields display the text you type as a header for the Field # selected below it. Here is an example. If you type text into the section like this:
