We require certain information exported into excel from shipstation for our fulfillment company's manifest. All the information is available on shipstation, but there is currently no way to select specific fields and export ONLY those fields.
It's a huge time suck to format a full excel export to the right cells and view as we require, and I have tried adding the required fields into a custom view and exporting that, but not everything is available as an option (which is odd, because this is all info that you have the data for, so I don't understand why I can't make the view with all of it - I've come close, but there's always a couple fields missing).
I have managed to do the exports but they seem to always be missing something - the two options, order items and orders have 'most' of that info, but not all - and certainly haven't found a way to do only the columns I would like.
Ideally if I could choose these items in a custom 'view' then export that view, it would make things easy. I can get the view to have ALMOST everything (currently I've managed one that has everything except the Ship to Street address, city, zip, and country of origin) but there seems to be no way to export that specific view with those specific columns.
I don't really understand why we can't add all the data that's currently available in Shipstation into the view. It seems odd that the column options are missing certain data fields that exist in other views and reporting features. It would allow more companies to fulfill their manifest requirements with less resources if we were all able to choose what information we wanted in an exported report.
