Mass Actions

First of all, we’d like to draw your attention to mass actions that are available with each Magento 2 extension. Depending on their amount, each module simplifies routine processes eliminating tons of manual work.

In case of Amasty, mass actions are divided into 2 groups. The first one contains the following actions: Invoice, Invoice > Ship (combined option), Ship, and Change status. The second group consists of such actions as Cancel, Hold, Unhold, Print Invoices, Print Packing Slips, Print Credit Memos, Print all, and Print Shipping Labels. As you can see, Amasty Mass Order Actions offers 12 mass actions. Some of them provide the ability to choose additional options and apply sub-actions (for instance, you can notify customers in case of three first actions of the first group).

Note that it is possible to show/hide the first four actions in settings.

In its turn Mageworx allows you to cancel, hold, or unhold orders, print invoices, packing slips, credit memos, shipping labels, or all possible documents in bulk. Just 8 mass actions are available with the Mageworx Order Management Magento 2 extension. As you can see, some vital commands are missed. And it is impossible to hide them from the drop-down list.

When it comes to the number of available mass actions, Fooman seems to be more robust than Mageworx. With the Fooman Order Manager Magento 2 module, you get 11 commands: Cancel; Hold; Unhold; Print Invoices; Print Packing Slips; Print Credit Memos; Print All; Print Shipping Labels; Invoice; Ship; Invoice + Ship. In comparison with Amasty, Fooman does not offer only one action – Change Status. And you can not hide actions from the list.

At the first blush, Xtento offers the largest list of mass commands, but there are only 11 core actions. The list seems to be larger due to their variations. The Xtento Simplify Bulk Order Processing Magento 2 extension allows you to simplify daily routine processes with the help of the following actions:

  • Invoice Order – create invoices in bulk;
  • Ship Order – create shipments in bulk;
  • Complete Order – set order status to “Complete” in bulk;
  • Capture Payment – capture payments for selected invoiced orders;
  • Invoice / Ship Order;
  • Invoice / Ship / Complete Order;
  • Print Order – print all PDF documents in bulk;
  • Delete Order;
  • Set Order Status – set any custom order status in bulk;
  • Re-send “New Order” email to customer;
  • Uncancel Order – change status from “Canceled” to “Processing”.

As you can see, Xtento offers a bunch of unique mass actions, while Amasty and Fooman provide more common commands. As for Mageworx, it lets you use only basic actions, but even their amount is enough to simplify administration tasks dramatically.

New Columns

Of course, every order management solution should revamp the default order grid making it more admin-friendly. So, how do our participants solve this task?

In case of the Amasty Mass Order Actions Magento 2 module, you get one noticeable improvement: the order grid gets the shipping column which contains the Carrier dropdown with all carriers, the title of the order, and the tracking number field. Thus, you can view and edit tracking numbers on the grid. There are 20 columns available each of which can be shown or hidden.

As for the Mageworx Magento 2 module, you also get a highly customizable grid but with 19 columns that can be shown or hidden. More columns are planned to be released soon.

And while Mageworx lacks the Shipping column introduced in Amasty Mass Order Actions, Fooman Order Manager splits it into two separate columns: Tracking Number and Tracking Carrier. The overall amount of columns is 21 and you can show hide any of them.

 Fooman Order Manager Magento 2 Extension Review; Fooman Order Manager Magento 2 Module Overview

The Xtento Simplify Bulk Order Processing Magento 2 module also adds an additional column. Carrier/Tracking provides the ability to edit tracking information in a grid. And there is a list of carriers. Note that Xtento also offers 20 columns that can be shown or hidden.
