Hi there,

Spoke to a consultant on the phone a minute ago.

We did't quite get there as there doesn't seem to be an option this...

I am asking whether there is a possibility which i believe there should be to print and SELECT customized packing slip.

In a similar manner that an individua customer can have a selection for an invoice to be pritned.

Next update for RightsPlus should have this opportunity. Unless it exists and we both could not locate it.

 

There is an option to select each individual customer via Sales>Print/Email invoices>Advanced Filters

but this is incredibly time consuming. SOLUTION?

 

Many thanks,

Massimo's Italian Cheeses

Yes this would be great if we able to print a customised invoice and packing slips directly from the Invoice screen. Rather then having to print a customised invoice form after creating the Invoice and then having to print a customised packing slip from the Print/Email invoices screen.

 

This is a double up in processes and time consuming for us.

Thanks for your comment @DrewMaxiMetals  If you'd like to see this idea implemented, I recommend that you vote for it as well as comment.

If you like, you can set AccountRight to print a packing slip when you print an invoice. To do this go to setup and click preferences. Here tick the option 'print packing slips when invoices are printed.' With this option selected, AccountRight will automatically print a packing slip when you print an invoice from within the invoice window. The default packing slip used would be set from the print/email invoices window.

HI Guys,

 

Im sorry but this system you have here of voting does not get enough exposure. I found this voting system by accident and never would have known about it unless I found a link. There needs to be exosure on main page in order to attract users. Unless the goal is to keep the voting to low numbers.

Secondly.

I have just come from another system and am already reconsidering. Packing slip needs to be able to be printed from the invoice window as seen in other systems. To have to go out of the window and through the process as shown is an overcomplicated approach. Also, I do not see a reason as to why invoices need to be changed from to be e-mailed to other status in order to be able to print this. This then requires the status to be changed once again. What if the user forgets? I believe this to be a serious flaw of the design.

 

I don't think it should be "voted"on. It should be implemented.

Hello @A-L

 

Thank you for your feedback on the ideas exchange I have passed this onto the relevant team for you. 

 

In regards to the status of the “to be emailed” options, when you create the card file you have the option to select the delivery status in the selling/buying details. This is where you set the default status for this card file. You can change this when you create the invoice/purchase to something else if you would like. 


Once again thank you for your feedback.

HI @KattC

 

Thanks for your reply. Yes I am aware of the ability to change the status, but the point would be to not have to change and muck around with the status of the invoice in order to be able to print the docket from the print/email invoice window, but thank you for passing it on.

This would make life SO much easier for us as we run 3 seperate trading entities under the One Company so each time we do the packing slip (we call it a Delivery Docket) we must change it each time rather than have a default form as you do with the default Invoice allocated to each customer.............PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

Hi We operate two separate divisions within the one company file and use different invoices and packing slips. In the Customer Card File / Selling Details you can enter the appropriate printed form i.e invoice name. All good so far. However, I do have a problem that when I create a sales invoice I have to go into Sales/Email Invoices under Sales, Advanced Filters, check Sale Type and select Packing Slip (Item) and choose the appropriate printed form I want to use. Suggestion: This could be overcome by simply associating in this case the Invoice Form with the appropriate Packing Slip. Maybe this could be done in the Advanced Filters (mentioned above) which could be used for any form where an association is required.
