The Funnel module is a specialized sales document processing screen used to control the processing order of documents in a certain queue. Instead of users choosing which documents to process, the Funnel brings up documents one at a time in the order they are to be processed. The Funnel can be used as a “final check” before sending documents to the warehouse to be processed.


In Modules > Security Editor:

  1. Find Funnel in the Security column and enable it by selecting the check box
  2. Set the sub-settings to allow processing Manual and Pre Auth payments, and editing line items
  3. To allow access to the Configuration screen from the Queue Setup button in the Funnel, enable Pick Ticket Processing Configuration
  4. Click Save

Note: You must log out of SalesPad and then back in for security changes to take place.


Configure the following settings in the Settings module before using the Funnel:


Add Pick Ticket Printed Note - This setting is visible in the Funnel screen. If True, it will add a note to the current document in the Funnel when the pick ticket is printed. (Example: "Pick Ticket On: {DATE} {TIME} by {USER}")

Backorder Batch - Sets the batch that backorders will be sent to from the Pick Ticket Processing window.

Evaluate Rules When Pulling - If True, workflow rules will apply when pulling a document.

Freight Field Enabled - If True, enables the freight field from the Funnel.

Ship Methods - Sets shipping methods separated by semi-colons, that the Other Report (Report specified in the Funnel setup) should print.

Show COD Field - If True, a COD field linked to USRDEF03 will display for a sales document while in the Funnel.

Update Ship Date If Packing Slip Is Printed - If True, the ship date will be updated when the packing slip is printed from the Funnel.


Split Document - If True, users will be prompted to split a document containing backordered items when it is processed in the Funnel.
