Automatically change fulfillment when an order is printed

Hi all,

I was just wondering whether there was a way to automatically switch the order status to something like 'Pending' or 'Partially fulfilled' after the order packing slip has been printed.

In the factory they print out multiple packing slips at a time to complete orders, they need a way of knowing which orders they have printed. I have looked at switching order status manually. But, it is not viable if we are getting a lot of orders.

This is quite urgent so if anyone can respond, I'd be forever in your debt.


Thanks in advance.

Hi @Jonathan_Long,

Hyde here from Shopify. Great question!

While it is not possible to do what you're looking to do currently, I will be sure to pass on your feedback to our developers.

In the meantime, while it is still manual and potentially a little cumbersome, you could consider adding notes to your orders instead if that helps?

All the best, Hyde.
