You need to select which printer and which report to use for printing consignment labels and manifests.

For label printing you’ll want to choose the relevant label printer and chose the labels-4″ x 4″ report (we don’t currently provide 4″ x 8″ labels, but we are expecting to in future, the A4 report is for customers who do not have a label printer).

For the manifest printer you’ll either want to select your label printer and the manifest-4″ x 4″ report OR select an available A4 printer and use the manifest-A4 report.

Once you have made your selection click Save Configuration.
