I think this is the way my programmer is currently setting up the backend of the website for these specific processes.
After the specific process runs the website generates/creates a *.pdf file of either the "shipping label" or "packing slip" and then I have to manually open, browse to printer, select printer, and then print. So I would have to do this over-and-over, and as you can see this becomes a very tedious process.
This is why I was trying to find any way possible to automate this so each specific process automatically prints to the right printer.
- So with this Firefox add-on I would be able to select multiple printers in my LAN network and specify which process will print to what printer?
- How would the add-on know what printer needs to print for each specific process that the website runs (e.g. website process to print shipping label, website process to print packing slip)?
Thanks, that makes sense! However, it is so frustrating not being able to implement something like this easily. If my backend was software based this wouldn't even be an issue. But with so many web applications running online now, I'm surprised that a more reliable system hasn't been put into place to solve issues likes this; especially from the "warehouse operations" standpoint.
I did find this "NiceLabel SDK"; which looks like it does what I'm looking for, but it is expensive and out of my budget for now.
