Creating a packing list

Introduction

Paragon's Packing List module allows you to prepare and organize your items ready for shipment. When your packing list is issued, you can also make use of our boxing function, for a full breakdown you can read our article on Using the boxing function. In this article, we'll walk you through how to manually create a packing list as well as how to create a packing list from a pick ticket and an order.

The packing list module is based on Paragon's standard transaction screen, to get a better understanding of navigating these screens, check out our guide on How do transaction screens work.
