Feature Spotlight – Priority Flags and Notes in Sales, Transfer, and Despatch Registers

Do you still have Yellow Sticky Notes on the Warehouse PC Terminal or attached to Picking Slips?If so, please read on!

All Datapel product editions allow users to collaborate and alert the warehouse manager to priorities and notes with Order Status Flags. From within the Sales/Transfer and Despatch register you can right click on a transaction, choose Set Order Status, then choose from High, OnHold, Low or revert to Normal. This will cause the transaction to be visually marked with a priority status flag; for example OnHold shows as a red stop sign.

Furthermore, you can click on the Notes Tab of a selected order then by clicking into the edit area, pressing CTRL+N you can add notes that will be visible to all your team while not showing on customer printed manifests. This is a great way for your sales and warehouse staff to collaborate and share information about priorities, visually identify onhold orders or highlight orders that need special attention.

You can even LOCK selected sale and transfer orders from being picked and shipped by the warehouse; to enable this feature go to the Tools, Preferences option and select the Security Tab. Tick the box to enable OnHold LOCKS Order at current status. Now you can avoid the yellow sticky note – with the “Don’t send out yet!”.
