How Sorting is Determined

Tip: The fastest way to Batch Pick

There are two available options to sort orders, which can be modified using the following steps:

  1. Using the top menu, click My Account, then click Settings
  2. Click App Settings
  3. Scroll to bottom of the page to last option labeled "Batch Picking Type"

Optimize Batches to Minimize Walk (Default)

Batch Picking is prioritized based on the bin locations of items in open orders.
The batch will include your oldest and most prioritized order, and then also include other orders that contain items with nearby bin locations. This creates the most efficient path through your warehouse, picking the most orders with the least amount of steps.

Optimize Batches by Priority then Required Ship Date

Batch Picking is prioritized firstly by any orders marked as Priority, and then by Required Ship Date. The Pickers journey through the warehouse is NOT optimized.

This could result in the Picker making multiple trips across the warehouse space to pick SKUs for orders and is not recommended.
