Often in larger companies with larger jobs, many parts of a job are produced separately and only come together when complete. It can be a challenge to keep track of all the elements of a job. Some may be at a loading dock while others are in a rack.
There is an optional feature for M-Power to manage these Open Despatches. Each Despatch Docket can be assigned a status (1) and line a location (2) that places it on the Open Despatches list.
When enabled, a new tab is provided alongside the existing despatches list called Open Despatches (1). This list is self-managing based on the status selected (2) in each docket. Each Despatch Line is assigned a location (3) so at a glance and by searching the Job ID or Despatch ID you can see where all elements of the Despatch are located.
You can edit the status from within this list (4).
The Despatch Status and Location lists are edited in Settings > Lists. Selecting Active (1) will allow this status to be used, Close Despatch (2) causes the docket to be removed from the Open Despatches list if this status is selected.
If you think you can benefit from this feature, please contact support to have it enabled.
