This enables you to view all existing invitations to join your SKUSavvy account, as well as to see the time the employee joined and the last time they have logged in.

Warehouse Assignment

From your SKUSavvy top-level account once an employee has been invited and accepted with the assigned permissions this employee can be added to specific warehouses. Once added to a warehouse the employee can now be assigned batches of orders, cycle counts, or packing tasks.

Assign to a Warehouse

To add an employee to a warehouse you'll go into the warehouse you'd like to add them to, and click 'Employees'. This will allow you to assign the employee or remove an employee from that warehouse. Assigning someone to a warehouse ensures they will see the available information for that warehouse such as inventory, orders, batches, or put-away tasks.

  • 1) Select a current company employee to add to the warehouse

  • 2) Click Add to complete the employee addition

  • 3) Current employees listed in the warehouse

To do so, go into a warehouse, and click on 'Fulfill Orders', and then select 'Batch Orders' from the table below the existing batches. When batches are created the workload will be distributed equally to all employees that have been assigned to the batch creation.

2) Click on a column header to sort the data A-Z, Z-A etc.
