If your warehouse has compatible fixed-position label printers, then you can preconfigure those printers for use within the Consignly Warehouse mobile app by using the Printers tab on the warehouse detail.
By preconfiguring a compatible printer, any mobile devices that are connected to the same network as the preconfigured printer will be able to print labels from the mobile app directly to that printer.
Preconfiguring the printer means that users don't have to configure printers within the mobile app themselves.

To create a preconfigured printer, choose the Create Printer button from the Printers tab in the Warehouse Detail.
In the new blade, populate the friendly name of the printer, network details, and the print resolution in DPI.
Choose Create Printer to save the new preconfigured printer.
