Packing slips

Your program may require entrants to send in a physical product as part of their online entry. To make it easier to keep track of the physical product with the online entry you can configure a packing slip, which entrants can download and print.

Configure packing slip

Packing slips are configured on a per category basis. This configuration allows you to create different packing slips for each category.

  1. Select the Manage workspace and go to Settings > Entries > Categories
  2. Click on the name of a category
  3. Go to the Delivery tab
  4. Select the PDF packing slip available for submitted entries in this category checkbox
  5. Add the Packing slip instructions and use any relevant merge fields

    Tip: fields are seasonal in Award Force. If you opt to use custom merge fields using slugs from the platform, they will need to be updated seasonally. 
  6. Click Save

For program managers

Program managers can download the packing slip in the Manage workspace by navigating to Entries and clicking on the entry and then Packing slip.

Note: packing slips are only available for submitted entries.

QR code

Each packing slip has a QR code which can be scanned using your smartphone. When the QR code is scanned, you will be directed to the entry within your account under Manage entries.

As an example, when you receive the physical product ,you can scan the QR code on the packing slip, which will then direct you to the entry. You can then tag the entry to say the product has been received; see: Tag entries.

If you don’t have a QR scanner on your smartphone, you can download one from your device's app store.
