Enable license plate label printing

Important

Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations is now being licensed as Dynamics 365 Finance and Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management. For more information about these licensing changes, see Dynamics 365 Licensing Update.

This topic shows how to enable the automatic printing of a Serial shipping container code (SSCC) label after the last item is picked from inventory in a sales picking work process. You can run this procedure in demo data company USMF. If you’re run it using your own data, you need to have a number sequence set up for license plates. You need to set up a label printer before you begin this task. Go to Organization administration > Setup > Network printers. On the Action pane, click Options, and then click the Download document routing agent installer button. Run the installer and make sure that you have a working network printer set to Active before you continue with the procedure.
