In the consignment, moving the Status into Ready to Pick will allow you to pick the consignment product.
A Pick button will become available in the shoulder of the Products card. Choosing this button moves you into Pick mode.

In Pick mode, you can select the product you wish to pick and pick it from the warehouse. Depending on whether you're picking pallets or loose items you may get slightly different behaviours.
An example of picking product. In this case, we're picking a full pallet, loose items on their own, as well as loose items onto defined pallets for dispatch. The last pallet is showing 2 items being picked from pallet BCCAC-JWBL-000008 in AE-2-1-1.
When picking, you may be asked to pick product onto a pallet for dispatch. In this case, the pallet will have been defined along with the product that is to go on that pallet.
In the example above, the consignment has been created with 3 outbound pallets defined. Each pallet indicates the product that should be picked on that pallet.
Full pallet picks
You may be directed to do a full pallet pick. A full pallet pick requires the pallet in its entirety to be picked from the warehouse.
A full pallet pick must be completed in full, it cannot be part-picked. Pallets that are full pallet picks cannot have their quantity overtyped.
Items that are to be picked loose, may come from an existing pallet or may simply be stored in the warehouse as loose items.
Pick from a pallet
If you have been directed to pick loose items from a pallet, Consignly will present you with the location as well as the pallet identifier that you are to pick the product from.

If you are instructed to pick loose items, then if you cannot pick all of the quantity you can overtype the quantity to adjust the amount you are picking.
At this point you can choose to pick a different number of product to what is expected. For example, you could pick half of it now, and then pick the balance tomorrow.
As picks are completed the percent indicator of how much of a product has been picked will be updated. The percent next to the row will be updated, and in pick mode, the progress bar at the top of the Pick Products card will be updated.

Completing and closing the consignment
If the consignment is re-opened and moved back into a pick state, Consignly will illustrate the difference between what was expected and what was dispatched by showing a line representing the released holds for the balance of the requested inventory.
This helps illustrate that the balance of the expected amount wasn't fully picked.

A consignment's metrics will be updated to manual values based on the amount of product that was actually picked from the warehouse if the picked amount doesn't match the expected amount. Metrics may affect the charges raised on the consignment if Metric Rates have been used to create rates on Client or Carrier Rate Cards.
