The following Offline Automated Shipping programs will be available before the End of the Year on Release 6. We plan to have the details of these programs documented and available soon. 1. Create a shipment from an order. This API allows the user to bypass the order entry, picking, or shipping screens, and takes the order from Offline Order Entry to Offline Shipping, marking the invoice as ready to print. (NOTE: This is similar to the Release 2 "Auto Ship" function) 2. Create a shipment for a pick list. This API allows a user to create a shipment using an existing pick list. This API is for customers that do not require shipment confirmation. 3. Create Shipment special charges. This API allows the user to update pro-rated special charges on the selected shipment(s). This can used by Package Tracking (i.e. UPS) systems to send information back to a shipment. 4. Create a shipment using a pick list. This API supports controlled warehouses, allows transactions to update Pick Confirmation records, create inter-warehouse transactions moving material as picked and staged inventory from stocking locations to staging locations. The resulting Shipment in COM will be marked as complete, but still allow Carrier or Special Charges information to be updated until it is invoiced. This API is for customers that do require a shipment confirmation. 5. Delete a shipment. This API allows a user to delete a shipment and return the items to the original state from which they were called. Assumptions · Programs will be provided to edit and update COM Picking, Packing, and/or Shipping files. · There will be no interaction with the user within the programs (i.e. no screens, panels, etc.). · Request to create shipment by Pick list number assumes pick list has previously been created. · Consolidation will not be supported in the first delivery of Offline Pick, Pack, and Ship programs. · Serial Number entry will not be supported in the first delivery of Offline Pick, Pack, and Ship programs. · Maintaining of shipments will not be supported in the first delivery of Offline Pick, Pack, and Ship programs. · Confirmation of kit components will not be supported in the first delivery of Offline Pick, Pack, and Ship programs. · Addition of shipment comments will not be supported in the first delivery of Offline Pick, Pack, and Ship programs. · User exit programs that execute an interactive display will be changed to a version of the exit program that can be executed in batch mode.
