The composite feature works fine calculating stock levels and keeping the selling platforms accurate. The problem we have with it is the back end which relies on the user interpreting what each composite is made up of. Using Linnworks example of pens:

SKU - PEN1 (blue biro)

SKU - PEN2 (green biro)

SKU - PENBUNDLE (composite 3 x PEN1 + 3 x PEN2)

When we have 2 orders for PEN1; 1 order for PEN2 and 1 order for PENBUNDLE the picking sheet will show:

PEN1  x  2

PEN2  x  1


What it should show is:

PEN1  x 5

PEN2  x 4

The packing sheet should also show this  - the SKU PENBUNDLE should not appear at all on picking or packing. We have found most of our packing errors are due to composites and our packers not interpreting the composites correctly - this should be done automatically by Linnworks. Any chance of this being looked at and implemented?
