Item list Overview
Logistician 55's default view is the aggregated item list, which provides a consolidated view of all of the unfulfilled line items from your open orders. It can be used as a global pick list or manufacturing queue, and allows you to track prepared item quantities which can be used to keep track of progress during order preparation and to determine your order fulfillment capability.
When there are open orders, the item view should look similar to the screenshot below:
Each line item will be displayed with its full title (the product name plus the variant name). The product name will be separated from the variant name by a dash. Below the product name, will be the SKU, and a mention of how many orders need the item.
- The number of items in stock (based on the inventory counts in Shopify)
- The number of items committed to open orders
- How many items are needed to fulfill your open orders
- How many units have been prepared for fulfillment
The "needed" quantity will normally be the same as the "committed" quantity, except when generating a pick list for specific orders, in which case it will reflect the quantity needed to fulfill the selected orders.
If an item is backordered (such as when an item is pre-ordered or sold without inventory), the "in stock" badge will change color and be labeled "Oversold" instead of "In Stock". The oversold badge will then display the number of items that are on backorder.
Viewing item details and setting prepared quantities
- Order ID
- Order Date
- Quantity Required
- Quantity Prepared
Clicking on the order number will take you to that order in Shopify's admin panel.
Logistician 55 allows you to set a "prepared" quantity for items so that you can keep track of your progress during manufacturing or order picking, and also determine which orders are ready for fulfillment based on the prepared quantities. To set a prepared quantity, simply enter the number of units that are available, and then click the "save" button.
Please note that it may take some time for the new quantities to appear when reloading the page or switching lists. If statuses on the order list do not seem to change after updating the prepared quantities, or the prepared quantities do not appear to have been updated, simply wait a few moments and refresh the list once the new information becomes available.
You may toggle the display of details for all items at once by clicking the "Show Details" button in the main menu bar:
- Name (Ascending) - A to Z
- Name (Descending) - Z to A
- Quantity Needed (Ascending)
- Quantity Needed (Descending)
- Order Volume (Ascending) - will show items needed by the least amount of orders first
- Order Volume (Descending) - will show items needed by the most orders first
