Shipments are typically created by users logged in to the web site. However administrators can also import shipments from a courier EDI file and those shipments can be reconciled and billed through our financial system. However, given only a tracking number how can an administrator tell where the shipment data originated?
Today we added a column to the administrative shipment display (Administration | Shipments) visible to associates and above The column is named Source and it will show Website for shipments created by logged in users and EDI for imported shipments. Shipments created administratively (for example, to separate customs charges from freight charges) will be labelled Admin.
