As a Distributor, for the ready mixes which are sold to clients, you can use a distributor label.
The distributor label can be printed from the Mix History page by clicking the label icon belonging to the mix you want to print, and then selecting the "distributor label". If your mix contains 3 layers, then 3 distributor labels will be printed: one for each layer. If the mix has 3 layers, but you mixed only 2 layers, then clicking the label icon will result in only 2 labels being printed. If the mix is paused, then a distributor label cannot be printed: you need to first finish the mix.
In case you need to print the distributor label for a specific layer, then you can click the mix information icon , then select the layer, press the button, and then select "distributor label".
Note: The communication between the MIXIT web application and the label printer is done via the Instrument Manager. So, in order to print a label, the label printer must first be configured in the Instrument Manager.
When should I use a distributor label?
We recommend printing and attaching distributor labels to all the ready mixes you provide to your clients.
The main goal of a distributor label is to provide enough information to the client so that he can easily order more when needed.
Note: When you want to print information about the mix for internal use or for a spray-out panel, use the mix label. When you want to print the components and the quantities and should be mixed, use the formula label.
How can I enable the distributor label?
A user with the ShopOwner role can enable or disable the distributor label in the Settings >> Config page.
What information does the distributor label contain?
The distributor label contains:
- information about the mix layer:
- the date when the mix was created (in our example sep 22,2020)
- the shop which created the mix (in our example DefaultBodyShop)
- the mix number (in our example Mix #247). Note: You can easily find the mix in MIXIT just by typing the mix number in the search bar in the Mix History page.
