The Top 5 OMS FAQs of September

Sep 2019
Everyday, thousands of food and beverage companies use iTrade’s Order Management System (OMS) for planning, order management, accounting, logistics, and more. Check out our customers’ top 5 most frequently asked questions of the month. 


FAQ #1 

Question: I am unable to view my order in the shipping menu. How can I ship it?

Answer: Sometimes you are unable to see your orders in the shipping menu because of the arrival date on the order is over three weeks old. Orders, Loads, Invoices are all archived in the system 3 weeks from the Arrival Date.

For Example:
If a PO’s Arrival Date is 8/5/2019, the PO (and Load and Invoice if they are attached to the order) will be archived 8/26/2019 (3 weeks from 8/5/2019).

To “UnArchive” you will need to manually search for the PO in Order Status/OMS. Go into the PO. Change the Arrival Date to the current or a future date. At the bottom right of the PO you will see an “UnArchive” button. Click it. This will unarchive the PO.
