Open Orders: Views Manager

In OrdersOpen Orders, instead of displaying all unprocessed (unshipped) orders on one screen, you can set up a view to group orders which meet specific criteria. You may want to set up multiple views depending on the tasks you need to perform on open orders. For example, you can create views that display:

  • All orders
  • Ready to process orders
  • Unpaid orders
  • Out of stock orders, etc.

Use the Order View Manager module to create and customize separate views for different groups of orders.
