Automation Logs

The Automation Logs can be used to check on the status of the system during a given time period, for a specific Selling Channel (Job Category), and can be filtered for log entries that only report errors to allow identification of any areas that may be of concern. The information in the Automation Logs can also assist in checking if any reported issues originate within Linnworks, or with an external system, to ensure the customer will be able to get in touch with the correct support team. 

Quick Guide

Looking up the details of a Job in Automation Sync

The basic method to look up the details of any job type, on any Selling Channel, remains the same. The user must decide which Selling Channel (eBay, Amazon, Rakuten, etс) they wish to investigate, and which of the Job Types (Dispatch Notification, Inventory, Order Sync etс) they want to focus on.

The Automation sync screen defaults to the current day's date as From and To dates, with the Job Category set to All and the Job Type unselected, thus presenting a summary of the activity that day.

  1. Select Settings > Automation Logs.
  2. Select the Job Category and Job Type to Review.
  3. Set the Date Range to review and status if required.
  4. If that Job Type has run, the information will be displayed. Open the record to investigate.
  5. Select an Action to see more information.
  6. Return to the Automation Log screen when finished.
