Did you know that by the end of this post, more than 199 tons of paper will have already been produced? Now I doubt all that paper will end up being used to print warehouse pick lists… but it might.
That’s why we’d like to introduce ePickList! A mobile/tablet app that will enable your business to ditch paper pick lists for good. ePickList generates a list of items that you need to pick to fulfil your Linnworks orders. The app tells you what items you need to pick, how many, and where they are in your warehouse, and once picked, will automatically flag those orders in Linnworks!
EPL (catchy, right?) is now live on Android and iOS devices as part of a temporary free Beta period. Please download a copy and tell us what you think!

Thanks, and happy picking!
There isn't anything built into ePicklist that would stop you from picking the same item twice. Instead, this is handled in Linnworks.net with the use of Open Order Views.
Views in Linnworks.net include a very large set of filtering options. With them, you can create multiple views that group similar orders together, and separate orders that are different.
ePickList allows you to generate a pick list for orders in a chosen view. By setting up multiple views for orders that are in different stages of the fulfilment process, you can make sure that no order is picked twice.
When you generate a new pick list in EPL, the app sets the 'Pick List Printed' flag on the order. Therefore, you need to create a view that only shows you orders that have not had their pick list printed. If you only ever generate new picks from this view, then it's impossible to pick an order that's already appeared on a pick list in the past.
If you need a hand setting up these views, just get in touch via your open support ticket, and we can guide you through the process.
We work on Linnworks desktop and work primarily using order tags. Will EPL give me a pick list all order in tag 1 for example?
Good morning Jeet.
ePickList allows you to pick orders from an order view. If you wish to just pick orders with a specific tag, you could create an open order view that filters on that tag itself.
We would however recommend ensuring that you also filter on pick list printed so as to not pick up the orders multiple times.
Although you would have to set this view up in linnworks.net, it doesn't mean you can't continue using desktop.
