Labels And Tickets

A label is a simply a piece of paper which is used to display information to a customer. It may be something as simple as 'Save' to show the customer they will save money buying this item, or it could be a shelf label which shows the item description and its price. It could even by a full window display. The size of a label is only restricted by the size of the paper your printer will accept.

A label can simply be a picture and text (such as the Save label above) or it can print information about a specific item such as description and sell price or it can print information about a specific customer such as name and card number. If a label contains item or customer information, it is generally called a ticket to distinguish it from a simple label, however they are basically the same thing.

You use the Label Designer to design the format of your labels. This will let you place various pictures and text on the label as well as special data objects which tell the system what item or customer information to print on the label.

So where can you use labels? If you have a label which has no item or customer information on it (like the Save label above), you can use Print Labels to print a specific number of labels. For example, you might want to print 100 Save labels which you will stick on various items.

You can record the default label for each item by using the Items task. The end of day process Generate Tickets will use this information to generate batches of ticket for new items, price increases, price decreases, and so on.

When you receive stock using Goods Receipt or Invoice Matching, you can generate a ticket for each received unit or carton.

All of these batches can be printed using Print Tickets. You can also use this task to create your own batches. For example, if you wanted to refresh tickets in a particular department, you could request this.
