How to Generate Picking Slip after sales order is confirmed

Hi Guys,

I have been trying to figure out how to enable / configure my Odoo online account to add the extra step between the Sales Order confirmation and Delivery for allowing the Order to be Picked first.  After much searching, the best I could find was that I need to setup routes (http://www.scribd.com/doc/231107984/The-New-Odoo-Warehouse-Management-System) and in there I can enable the "Pick-Pack-Ship" type functionality.  However I am unable to find any information on how to turn on the routes functionality.  I also noticed when I go to the warehouse record, it simply just shows me location details and nothing else. I also tried to use Push and Pull flows. But could find any real documentation that worked for me.

BTW: Today I found the following link which tells me to enable advanced routes, you need to "There are some handy tricks offering a lot of possibilities already, for example these use case. Make sure to tick the option Manage advanced routes for your warehouse from Settings > Configuration > Warehouse. ".. However I don't see "Manage Advanced Routes for your warehouse" under Settings > Configuration > Warehouse.    This makes me wonder if something has changed between Odoo versions which changes the way picking is handled??  Obviously the online version of Odoo would be the most up todate version..  Any thoughts? 


However when I look at this screen further I noticed the option called "Create push/pull logistic rules " which seems to maybe have replaced the above option in the later version of Odoo?   However I am unable to find any instructions on how to use Pull and Push flows to enable picking.

I am assuming this should be really simple to switch on / configure and that I am missing a very simply setting! :)  Can anybody please point this out to me?

If u use Odoo v 8. When Sales Order is confirmed, it will call action_ship_create that will create Picking Slip. First, it will create procurement order and group and assign it with rule (procurement rule) which you have created in warehouse route > pull rule. Procurement order will check the suitable rule (according your route rule in warehouse, product, product category, and sale order line). The match rule is used to create picking. If your rule does'nt have picking_type, then it will not create stock picking or I can say that your rule triggers purchase than move stock.
