There has to be a better way to create ASN's for Cabelas other than pulling items one by one. When you have an order with 30 items it can become very tiring and stressfull and the items are not in order

Hello Debbie,

Thank you for your post. I would recommend using our 'Auto Complete' option in order to streamline the process of completing ASN's. It will automatically add all of your items to the ASN and requires less manually entry. You can also create defaults for any fields that are the same for every ASN. I have included a few videos for you to watch, one on Auto Completing and one on creating Defaults. I hope this helps, but if you would like more information just let me know!

I have never used the Auto-Complete much ... it is somewhat helpful, altho if you are not shipping all items at the same time you then have to go back and figure out which ones to delete

That is true.  At that point, it becomes a balance of whether it is worth auto-completing or not.  If you are shipping less than half of the items, I would not recommend using the auto-complete function.  Given that the Purchase Order is sent with all items that the retailer is ordering on them, the system is not aware when you will be shipping your items and how you will be packing your items.  This creates the necessary manual entry that you are running into.

The auto-complete function as well as defaults, both of which Kelsey called out earlier, are an attempt to reduce the manual entry as best we can. 

I hope this helps, let us know if you have any further questions/problems!
