Working with Sales Orders on Hold

To update an order with additional information, or you might want to check out the sales order for a length of time as you continue to work on it. You can check out a sales order, check the order back in, and when necessary, override the checkout of another user. Use this procedure to check out or check in a sales order, or override the checkout of a sales order that is on hold.

Navigate to Sales and marketing/Common/Sales orders/Order hold. This menu option is not available in the Accounts receivable module. This list page displays all orders placed on hold using the “Order holds” feature. If color-coding has been assigned to differing order hold codes, they are visible in this display. Both the color-coding and the days on hold will assist users in prioritizing order follow up.

This tab provides details regarding the hold activity.
