I mailed two shipments this morning. A single book to one member and three books to another member.

I was able to mark the single book as mailed, but I've been trying all evening to do that with the 3-book shipment. I click on the 'Books Have Been Mailed' button and nothing happens.

I'll contact TPTB tomorrow, but was just wondering if anyone else is encountering possible glitches.

I mailed a multi-book order a few days ago, no issues whatsoever.  So yes, if the system doesn't let you mark it in say 24 hours, do contact TPTB.  A timed-out transaction would be messy.

I mailed 6 books yesterday and didn't have any problems.  Good luck. Pat

The only reason that you wouldn't be able to mark your books mailed is if you haven't yet printed the wrapper.  Once you print the wrapper, the button activates so that you can click it.  Is it possible you printed the label twice for the one shipment?

Just marked something as mailed a few minutes ago.

Problem solved! I was able to separate the bulk order into individual shipments and mark them as mailed. Yay!

Thanks muchly for the responses.
