What are Whiplash Templates?
If it comes out of a printer, odds are good it was generated using a Whiplash Template. It's now possible to create unlimited Templates for different versions of things like Packing Slips, Email Confirmations, and Carton Contents Labels. Templates support HTML/CSS, EPL, and ZPL files. You can find them in the upper-right menu.
Currently, it's possible to create and edit Templates for Packing Slips and Email Confirmation Templates. Check out the announcement post for an example.
- Applying a different Packing Slip template for certain types of Orders with a Rule
- Using a retailer-compliant ZPL file for carton contents labels
- Turning the Packing Slip into a Bill of Lading for wholesale
Templates and Rules are powerful, flexible logic engines—combining them can make your Whiplash account as flexible as the rest of your business. Rules to choose a Packing Slip or Email Confirmation template are currently admin-only; reach out if you'd like us to help set up something similar on your account.
What happened to my old Packing Slips and Email Confirmations?
We made the switch some a few weeks back to put your existing templates onto the new infrastructure; the files are still there, but they have a new home. The old pages in Preferences link you where you need to be.
What kinds of things can go in Templates?
For HTML templates, this doc is a good resource. If you're writing in ZPL, those variables will work.
