Staged Processing Orders Packing
For the Other Action Menu options (press or ) see Sales Invoice Other Actions Menu.
The Packing stage is used to pack picked orders into boxes or other containers. The boxes or containers can be stock controlled within Khaos Control. Once orders have been packed, the user can also create a packing report with information on which stock items have been packed into what box(es). The packing stage also allows the user to pack items into multiple boxes or containers that can be despatched with difference suppliers, e.g. This allows a customer who has ordered two items, one being a very small item which can be sent via Royal Mail and the other a very large and heavy item requiring special packaging and delivery. For more information see the 'Shipping' stage.
