The standard layout in CONSIGNOR will show many fields, this software is created to support many different carriers. Therefore you might not need every field that is activated by default.
The most "common" fields to use are;
Name 1 (receiver name)
Address 1 (Receivers delivery address)
PostNo (The post number for receivers delivery address)
Number (number of parcels on the shipment)
If shipping to a company Attention and Receiver Reference is also common fields to inform which department or person within the company the package is for.
In CONSIGNOR there is validation rules from the carriers, so if you are missing mandatory data CONSIGNOR will tell you on print that you are missing relevant data.
When ready you can use the print button - this will start the print operation.
If the printer is not previously added in CONSIGNOR this Document Printer Wizard will open up - the steps here are as following;
Select the Printer under Available Printers - then choose which printer type it is.
Check status and push OK.
The shipment should now be located in Outbox, here it is important that you transmit EDI data to the carrier before they handle the goods.
Go to the menu Outbox, check the folder Stack 1 where the shipment is located and use the button Transmit Checked.
This is a batch job, so if you have several shipments you can wait to transmit to you have printed all shipments for the day.
