When creating a shipment with an external courier - the system will automatically use a default senders reference containing data taken from fields: Client Short Name & Order Reference.
This data will be entered in one senders reference field for the shipment (e.g. Mintsoft-1234) & usually appears on the shipping label itself.
However for some couriers it is possible to enter multiple senders references (please check with the courier if unsure)
So we have made it possible now to enter up to 3 senders references & change the data fields for each reference.
You can now choose from the following fields for a reference(s):
- Order Number
- Client Short Name
- Client Short Name & Order ID (system default)
- OMS Order ID (internal order ID)
- Single Line SKU
- Single Line SKU & QTY
- External Order reference
If you select either of the Single SKU reference options and the order contains multiple SKUS - the reference will default to MULTI-Order ID
To modify courier references please navigate to Shipping > Extras > Courier Integration Setting > Courier References:
You can then select to add new reference rules for all clients & channels or make reference rules for an individual client & channel:
Now you can select from the various fields available for each reference:
Only Reference 1 is guaranteed to appear on the shipping label if the courier prints the reference on the label.
References 2 & 3 may only appear on courier invoice data or other courier reporting
The references may be too long to fit on the courier label if the courier joins the references together.
Then please save once selections made & you will now have a table of reference rules per courier:
For this label below i have simply selected client short name as the reference:
