The Order lines section is a selection in the left column navigation of eFactory—this section mirrors the Orders Tab (top navigation tab) in terms of options but is unique in that it enables the user to view line items included in each order by SKU and quantity. At the same time, the ‘Orders’ tab (in the top navigation) focuses on the order ‘header’ without detailing line items within each order.
Order Lines is a subsection within the Orders tab that lists orders at the line level. You will see the parts and quantities on the orders. This will also show OPEN, ON HOLD, BACKORDERS, PRE-RELEASE, SHIPPED, CANCELLED, AND ALL. In addition, you will see what parts are shipping. The columns, Filters, searches, and customization will work the same as the Orders section under the Orders tab.
Sub Sections under Order lines
These are orders that have not shipped yet. Here your will be able to see information like the order stage, where it is going, how we are shipping the orders, and what carrier service the order is shipping.
These orders are flagged in the system not to ship. Orders can come to us with a hold flag or be placed on hold by the customer or DCL.
These are orders that we don't have enough product to ship. Within the orders section, you cannot see what part numbers are short.
As a value-added service, we have the capability to conduct pre-release checks on orders. One example of the checks that could be necessary is address validation. To find out if we can provide this service and if there will be any additional fees, please get in touch with your Account Manager.
You can view shipped orders here. You will also see additional columns that are not present in the other sections. Thos are Delivery Date, Delivery Days, and Delivery Status.
