June here from Shopify.
I'd love to chat about what you're seeing on your end, as the option to bulk print shipping labels should still be there - as you've said, it saves so much time. I'm curious to know where this option has gone from your Orders page.
One thing you will notice in your current admin layout, compared to the example in the link above, is that the Create shipping labels bulk action now has its very own button.
Can you confirm if you're seeing this in your own admin now?
If not, and you feel comfortable sharing, a screenshot of the options you are seeing would be very helpful! As well as any more details about the issue you're experiencing in your current workflow. With some more context, I'll be happy to help you get back to printing dozens of shipping labels at a time.
Thanks so much for those details!
What you're describing is absolutely the correct workflow:
Based on what you've shared, it sounds like this last preview page is what is not appearing for you, is that correct? Are you seeing any errors or messaging, or just finding that nothing happens at all when you select Print [x] shipping labels? And are those steps otherwise consistent with what you've seen on your end?
With that in mind, I'd love if you could try a few things for me:
To reduce effort on your end, definitely feel free to create labels for only two orders at a time as you're giving those steps a try. I'm looking forward to hearing how that goes!
