My colleague entered an order but I cannot see an order to ship?
This is a permissions issue. For two users to see the same order, they must be assigned to the same project and vendor number (if applicable).

News — Feature Alert
The pick-pack-ship pages have been enhanced! They are now easier to use and boast some new functionality such as:
- Temperature controlled items are now flagged in the Description of an item as Ambient, Refrigerated, or Frozen to assist with packaging or service selection requirements.
- For items that are set to Auto-Pack, dimensions and weight are automatically filled out in the Pack step.
- Service selection now relies on cost-based routing. The most cost-effective carrier and service are selected for the lane, based on the rates available in the system.
