The Mobile WMS app can be used to register Tote shipping when the "Enable Tote Picking" is selected in the "Mobile WMS Setup".
The background for this function was to be able to create one shipment and one pick for multiple customers and then separate the orders/customers by the Tote ID's.
Tote Picking & Shipping
The Tote functionality is accessed through both Pick and Tote Shipping in the main menu, as seen in the screenshots.
