The single tote picking method on our App is ideal for large multi-line orders which are picked into large trolleys or containers and identified by a unique barcode.
The process picks one order at a time, so is not recommend for high volume / low unit count orders - for these types of orders we would recommend App - Bulk picking
Create Bulk Batch Pick & Assign to Mobile User
To create a bulk picking batch - navigate to Picking > Manage Batches > Create New Batch
Choose the warehouse / client / courier / product filters as normal required.
Now when the batch has been created, make sure the picking type is correct (Standard) and choose the user you want to assign the batch to, then click assign:
You can make two default setting changes depending on how you most uses mobile batches:
- Change your default batch landing tab to assign to mobile users by going to Settings > User Settings > Picking Defaults > Batch page default tab
- Change your mobile batch type default setting if you regularly use one type of mobile batch over others -Settings > User Settings > Mobile Defaults or see guide Setting Default Mobile Batch Type
Now the orders in batch will be sent to the picker on the App to pick.
