Label Button Settings
By default, the button is set to Create + Print Label, so you can create the label and initiate the print action in a single click. If you use this in conjunction with the Default Printer setting and ShipStation Connect, one click will both create and print the label.
If you do not wish to print the label right away, but rather create a group of labels first, then print them later, you may wish to change the default state of the button to just Create Label so you don't have to select it from the button's drop-down each time.
To change the default button state:
And that's it! When you return to your Orders and Shipping tabs, the default button for creating labels should be updated.
