This fantastic feature request was from
@adam-henderson. I have split this from another thread with multiple suggestions into a single thread to ensure it can be tracked through to implementation properly and others voting know what they are voting for.
Auto set number of consignment boxes – in the past we have sort of fudged this with some rules, but I think a better way is to set available box sizes/weights and assign what combinations of product types can go in what box. For example.
• Box A can take single cans – max 12kg per box
• Box B can take 12packs OR 24packs – max 24kg per box
• Box C can take 30L Keykegs – max 30kg per box
• Box D can only 30L steel kegs – max 40kg per box
For example – if an order is
• 2x12pack (6kg)
• 1x24pack (12kg)
• 1x30L Keykeg (30kg)
The system would set 2 boxes on the consignment (1xBox B and 1xBox C) to fulfil the order.
Then orders can be set to auto select the correct and minimum number of boxes on the consignment. I am open to other suggestions on how to do this if you have them.
If you would find this useful, please give this thread a vote
Adding the idea here that when specifying your boxes, you could enter the dimensions of the box to ensure that Breww can pass over more specific dimensions to the courier when generating labels.
