Explains the Barcode Scan Action Report and the Barcode Scan Action Quick Reference Sheet in ShipStation.
Barcodes can also be used to perform other actions in ShipStation. These actions can include actions like getting a rate, pulling a weight from a connected scale, navigating to a new part of the interface, and printing documents. Most hotkey functions can also be printed as barcodes, if you'd like to eliminate the keyboard and use your barcode scanner exclusively.
In ShipStation, you can print these reference sheets from the
Insights > Reports screen. You can even create your own custom Quick Reference sheet for frequently used actions. Read on for details.
The Scan Action reports detailed in this article are currently only available when using ShipStation's Legacy layout. We are working to add more barcode scanning functionality to ShipStation's new layout as soon as possible!
Barcodes can be used in place of hotkeys for certain actions within ShipStation. These actions include (but are not limited to):
Read weight from scale
Show Rate Calculator
Create new order
Create new batch
Enable Barcode Listening screen
Print Packing Slip
Go to Account Settings
Go to Shipment > Batches
If you use certain barcode actions frequently, use the Barcode Scan Action Quick Action Reference Sheet to add them to a single sheet, in whichever order you prefer (see below section).
