The Shipments > Manifests tab is where you can create and print end-of-day manifests for shipping carriers that require them. A Shipping Manifest acts as a confirmation acceptance notice for some carriers, such as the US Postal Service.
A number of actions can be performed on this tab, including:
Actions: This menu contains a couple of tools that can affect a selected manifest or group of manifests:
- Print manifests: This allows you to print out the selected manifests so that you can provide them to shipping carrier personnel.
Create manifest: This allows you to quickly create a new shipping manifest for all of the recently shipped orders for a store and shipping carrier.
Search: This allows you to search for manifests by their shipping carrier, date of creation, and more.
Your shipping manifests are laid out in a table. This table can be sorted by any of its columns. The columns available include:
- Manifest #: The automatically generated number that refers to the individual manifest.
- Carrier: The name of the shipping carrier that the manifest was created for.
- Date: The date and time that the manifest was created.
