Overview

Overview

This is designed for a situation where you ship multiple supplies in a single box to a large customer location. The person who opens the box then has to figure out what floor/department each item needs to go to. This process will print labels with the location remarks to be added to each individual item before they are boxed together. Each 'individual box' will have the distribution details (Equip ID#, Model, Ser#, Location Remarks) for them to easily deliver the toner to the appropriate user vs. having to carry around a piece of paper and check off etc.

**NOTE: This process ONLY supports the Zebra GC420d or its replacement Zebra ZD220 / ZD220D printer... DO NOT ask us to support other printers as its not possible**

 

Type of Output: On Demand eAuto Custom Report

Alert Functionality

Alert Functionality

1. This process ONLY supports the Zebra GC420d or its replacement Zebra ZD220 / ZD220D printer... DO NOT ask us to support other printers as its not possible.

2. We only support 4 x 2 labels and no other sizes

3. The Custom Report will print ONE label per item quantity with the ordered by / equip#, model, equip location remarks / item , item description. So if customer ordered one box of each color toner for a machine, we print one label for each box. If they order quantity 2 of an item, we print one label for each unique quantity, so every individual 'item' on the order will have it's own label to be applied. User will run the custom report specifying the 'Shipment Number'.

4. The items must be 'shipped' in eAutomate before you can print the labels.

5. The workstation/PC must have the default windows printers set to the Zebra printer

6. Set eAuto the workstation/PC printers for other items at the eAuto client level via Tools \ Client Settings \ Printer to Defaults pointing to another printer for Packing Lists, Picking Lists, Sales Invoice, Contract Invoice, Service Invoice, etc:

Best Practices & Tips

Best Practices & Tips

1. This process is built for a very specific printer and label size.  We do not make customizations to the report due to the difficulty involved.  However, users can download the Crystal Report provided and make the changes themselves.

2. If you're on 16.1, you must install the updated CRRuntime on your eAuto server available in downloads on ECI's website

3. UserID must be associated with the Employee Record in eAuto in order for the entered by field to populate (see alert ID221 to be notified on any missing)

4. Shipping Contact must be populated on each line item within the Sales Order for that contact to populate on the label

5. It has been recommended by a user of this process to export the label to PDF as once it is a PDF, then it is easier to change sizes without having to set the printer as the default.
