Manual for the customers of logistics providers

Table of contents

Introduction

This manual is intended for users of Ongoing Warehouse using the customer login, i.e. the logistic providers’ customers. Please note that the available menus and the set of columns shown in the order / inorder list depend on the settings in your system and might differ from those in the manual.

The manual contains the following four sections:

  1. Order handling: creating orders and using the order list.
  2. Inorder handling: creating inorders and using the inorder list.
  3. Goods flow: historical and current information about goods flow, such as incoming and outgoing goods.
  4. Statistics: warehouse statistics

Orders

Order list

The order list is reached by OrderOrder list, or by simply clicking on Order, as shown below.

Above the list in the box Search two or more (depending on system settings) search fields are shown. Default search fields are OrderID and Goods owner order number. Those can be used to search for specific orders. You can also search by clicking at the magnifier in the column headers and typing in the search value. In the same way To / From values can be used by clicking on the white arrows next to the magnifier and typing in the To / From values. By clicking on any column headers the order list will be sorted in ascending/descending order (clicking again to alter between ascending/descending).
