Configuring Multiple Printers for Batch Printing

You can create the WarehouseBatchPrinter custom attribute in the Administration module to enable warehouse associates to print a specific batch of pack sheets in a fulfillment location.

Configure the custom attributes WarehouseBatchPrinter with values (printer1, printer2) to enable this functionality. This attribute is used in combination with the BatchPrint client to filter batches. You can execute multiple batch printing job tasks to printing at different printers. This attribute must be configured to show a printer or select a printer for batch printing. See Managing Batches of Shipping Orders in Warehouse Manager.
