  • New Invoice Item Sorting Question

    I'm excited about the new items sorting on invoices in 5.1.1 and I'm eager to get it up and running on a store. Current sorting methods are:

    Product Part Number
    Product Name
    Extra Fields 1 - 4
    Warehouse Location

    I understand all of these except for Extra Fields. Can anyone elaborate on this? The tool tip says that "items are sorted by information written on their respective custom fields."

    But how?

    Does it sort alphanumerically on field 1, and then 2, etc?

    Alright, I took the dive and rolled out some changes on our additional fields to get this going.

    It looks like this feature checks additional field 1 first and sorts alphanumerically.

    What happens next is unknown to me. If there's no data in Field 1, does it check field 2? Or, does it check field 1 across all products, and then move on to field 2?

    In any case, I have products on our invoices sorted using Field 1 and it works great. I think this will half our picking time.
