Pick list, as the name suggests, is a list of all the items you need to pick ready for despatch. Pick lists are used to significantly reduce order fulfilment time. Linnworks generates a pick list from selected orders and aggregates the quantity of items you need to pick based on the fields specified in the pick list template.

Pick lists is based on a template. Therefore to change the layout and to specify what type of information you want to see on the pick list, you need to modify the pick list template.
When the pick list is generated the quantity you need to pick is an aggregate of all selected fields. This means that the Quantity displayed on the pick list is broken down according what fields you have included on the pick list template. For example if you just include SKU and Quantity, Linnworks will simply count how many unique SKUs are in the selected orders (taking ordered quantity into account as well of course). Whereas if you include SKU, Source and Quantity. Linnworks will count how many unique SKUs for each Source you have selected and display that information only.
You can configure the pick list to display each order for the item in the pick list underneath the item row. This is sometimes helpful if you want to use Pick list as a sole despatching reference and simply scan order ids directly from the Pick List to mark them off on the system as Despatched.
To enable order information for each pick list item row, you need to enable Sub Table for the Item table in the pick list:
