On Sales Orders for locations that "Require Shipment", users must create a Warehouse Shipment by one of the following methods:
* Create Warehouse Shipment directly from the Sales Order Card / List
* Create Warehouse Shipment manually from the Warehouse Shipments list, and then run Get Source Documents, or "Use filters to get Src. Documents"

Using the first method is the best when you use "Shipping Advices" because BC will not create a Warehouse Shipment for a Complete Shipping Advice is goods are not available on the current location. Additionally, this will generate 1 shipment instruction per sales order, which is desirable for most scenarios.

Using the second method is the best when you need to ship multiple orders at the same time that don't have a Whse Shipment created for it yet. However, this option ignores the Shipping Advice restriction. Additionally, you will have just 1 warehouse shipment for multiple orders, which some customers don't like, because they prefer to pick individual orders, as opposed to picking multiple orders at once.

This idea is to suggest that, from the Sales Order List, when you click on the Warehouse > Create Warehouse Shipment (this is an existing action), BC should create individual Warehouse Shipments for ALL sales orders currently selected, and respect the Shipping Advice.

We should also have some field "Warehouse Shipment Lines Exist" as a flowfield visible on the Sales Order List, so that users can easily see which orders still need a Warehouse Shipment created for it.

This would save some customizations we need to do for smaller customers to handle orders in batches.
