There are two options for packing guidelines for store items/items that are created to be used in the box builder - Normal and Separately. By default, when you create a new item, packing guidelines are always set to Normal. However, if you would like to affect how certain items appear in reports, you can change the Packing Guidelines to Separately.
- NORMAL: Item is to be packed inside an individual box that is going to a member
- SEPARATELY: Item is to be packed outside of the box - usually this would be used for a program that does a market style pick up and packs items in bulk to bring to a pick up site
To set a packing guideline, go to Market --> Items. Open the item you would like to set a packing guideline for and click on the Advanced Tab of it's item card. Then, select the packing guideline you would like from the drop down menu.
The difference between SEPARATELY and NORMAL
SEPARATELY: Items with the packing guidelines set to "Separately" are listed under “Packed Separately”. The quantity shows the harvest total for the item.
NORMAL: If an item has a packing guideline of "Normal" it will not appear in the delivery route report.
NORMAL: Items that have been added to Shares/Options in the Box Builder and have packing guidelines set to “Normal” will not appear in the distribution report.
