Manifest when I want
So I get a collection at 4pm and will have all sacks ready to be collected with manifest. However I keep working and packing sometimes in the evening but then C&D auto manifests at 6:30pm.....
Does this mean those manifested at the 6:30pm slot have to be put into different sacks.
What if I want to do a bit of packing on Sat night, Sunday afternoon would it not make sense just to manifest when you want so we can pack our parcels when we want to.
For confirmation, the auto manifest option only commences if a label has been produced and no data is sent to OBA. Auto manifesting also does not run on Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holidays. In the example you have mentioned where your mail has been collected and you continue to generate labels up until 6 30, if you are taking the items to a Royal Mail Customer Service Point or Post Office counter, you should manifest again that same night to obtain your paperwork, if you are presenting them on your collection the next day alongside your next days orders, the items can all be included in the same bags per format / class combination. In this scenario the items you prepared after 16 00 would be ignored when the auto manifest process commences because you have manifested that day.

Please can you help clarify:
We have Monday to Friday collection.
However, to keep ontop of our orders I want to pack and generate labels over the weekend too ( and Bank holidays ). I dont want to generate a manifest on these non-collection days but bundle them up into one manifest on the next collecfion day ( usually Monday but sometimes Tuesday when there's a bank holiday ).
On say the Monday I want to manifest Saturday, Sunday and Monday batches altogether in a single manifest.
Is that OK? Or will it cause a problem in click and drop?
How to edit manifest when it is already generated?

JoycieBamczek66, I think the original problem was if you manifest at 4pm, go to the post office/have your collection, and then receive an order at 430pm, which you pack and print a label, but dont intend on posting until the following day, when the following day comes, you will not only have that days manifest, but an auto generated manifest covering the 2 and a half hours between 4pm and 630pm.
Like Darren says, just turn off auto manifest by calling RM.
You can manifest whenever you want you don't have to do it at 6:30 we do all of ours at 4pm ready to take them to the post office
You can ask for auto manifesting to be switched off, it baffles me why they have it in the first place as nobody can explain to me what the purpose of auto manifest is.
