We're pleased to introduce enhanced user access controls to help you manage your brands and locations more precisely. With this update, you can now specify which child accounts a user can access, as well as whether they can access the parent account.
For instance, if you're shipping multiple brands under one parent account and the brand owner needs access to view their orders, you can grant access to only the relevant brand's child account, ensuring they see only what they need. 🔒

Setting up these new controls is simple:

    Users

  2. Select

Exclusion filtering
We're excited to introduce a powerful new enhancement to our order filtering in UI 2.0: Exclusions!
This enhancement allows you to refine your view of orders by excluding specific options, giving you more precise control over which orders you see in the grid.
Exclusion filters are great for:
  • Hiding specific tags: Easily hide orders with certain tags (e.g., 'pre-order' or 'do not ship') from your Orders Grid for a cleaner and more focused view.
  • Prioritising international shipping: Exclude domestic orders to concentrate on processing and shipping international orders first.
  • Delegating SKUs: Remove orders containing specific SKUs that are managed by another team member, streamlining your workflow.
  • Weight based exclusions: Filter out orders of a certain weight to handle lightweight shipments more efficiently.
and more!
How to use exclude options:
  1. In UI 2.0 Orders Grid, click into the
    Filter orders
    bar
  2. In the dropdown, select
    Exclude
  3. Select which options you would like to exclude and orders containing those options will be filtered out from the Orders Grid
  4. To include options in the same view, switch the radio button at the top from
    Exclude
    to
    Include
    and select which options you would like to include

To add to the list of new template editors we've released recently, we have also made the original packing summary customisable. 📦 This is the one that provides a consolidated list of items across many orders.
Now, you can enjoy the same flexibility with the packing summary:
  • Change column widths
  • Add or remove columns
  • Add your own branding 🎨
If you've missed it, we've been gradually adding this functionality across the app with the packing slips, packing summaries and pickup in store/plain labels.
For more details, check out our support guide.
You can now filter the Orders Grid to only display orders containing a specific single SKU.
This improvement will help you easily identify and manage single SKU orders, making them quicker to process when you need to focus on a specific product, or prioritising orders only containing a single SKU for more efficient fulfilment.
How to use the single SKU filter
  1. In UI 2.0, navigate to the Orders Grid
  2. Click into the 'Filter orders' bar and find the 'Single SKU' section in the dropdown
  3. Click the SKU you wish to filter by and the Orders Grid will be updated to only display single SKU orders containing your selected SKU
Note:
SKUs are ordered in the dropdown from most to least frequent across orders. The number in the brackets next to the SKU is the number of single SKU orders containing that SKU.
