Filtering in Orders

In the orders screen, is there any way to add columns to the filtering section? Ideally to sort orders based on a global product attribute.

There’s a couple of reasons for this.

– We need to be able to separate out different shipping services. For instance, we prioritise 1st class and next day orders over the slower services to ensure that we don’t let the customer down. So we need to filter by shipping method.

– We don’t pick and pack as separate tasks. Instead we have a few packing desks located around the warehouse and all products are assigned to a particular packing desk that they are near. We then print all products for, say, Packing desk 1, and a staff member goes to the packing desk and has most products in a few steps of where he is packing. So we need to filter orders by a global attribute that we set up in advance.

– Other things which are handy, are being able to filter by marketplace and search by things like email or eBay username

Guessing these aren’t in shipeasy as standard (after playing with it for a bit). Is this something that could be easily added with them or in some other way?

Hi Dave S.

I think this is similar to a question I previously posted on here. Matt gave a great explanation on this. Just follow his link above.

Hi Dave,

The answer to that is ShipEasy from Moogento.

A screenshot is below. Jim from Moogento is travelling at the moment to avoid the storm that hit the philippines, we’l have an updated version in the next week or so :)

Thanks Matt, safe n sound back on dry land! Yep shipEasy does all that you’re asking there. I made this as I needed it myself for the same reasons as you – the need to see fast details about each order, sorting the orders to quickly produce useful output, and getting a good visual overview of what is happening in your store.

You might also like the idea of our latest version of pickPack, this one you can add Royal Mail postage images, which are auto-added based on the shipping method. You could for instance sort by shipping method, print all the packing sheets onto integrated labels and have everything packed in minutes. shipEasy also stores a filterable tag, saying whether an order has been printed yet, so you can easily see for example which order have not been printed, and are marked for overnight delivery, right at the deadline.

  • pickPack - smarter Magento packing sheets and warehouse picklists
  • shipEasy - process multiple orders with no sweat & get a visual sales overview easily

Hi Jim,

That all sounds great, we’ll be ordering PickPack shortly I expect.

Regarding the custom attribute columns, how do I add those? They don’t appear in my admin. I see them in your demo site and see the entries in System>Configuration>shipEasy, but they are missing from my install
