The Actual vs Planned Cycle Time report and Production Cost Breakdown report show overrun % and units of production time and production cost, respectively.

Feature 4: Shopify – Partial order fulfilment

Impact area:

Shopify integration, Sales module

Introduction:

In Shopify customers have the ability to make several fulfilments of the same order, or, partial fulfilment. Previously to this release, DEAR exports to Shopify did not support partial fulfilment – any fulfilment of items from an order would mark the order as fulfilled in Shopify. Additionally, while order ID and tracking number were exported, the export did not contain detailed information about fulfilled items.

With this release, our users can now optionally enable partial fulfilment and export of detailed information of fulfilled items. This setting can be enabled, but left disabled for users who prefer to continue using the previous functionality.

Pre-conditions:

  • Active Shopify integration
  • Pick, Pack and Ship process mode for online sales setting CANNOT be Load data from Shopify
  • Each location in Shopify must be mapped to a single location in DEAR (1-1 mapping). Shopify locations cannot be mapped to All locations in DEAR. When a new Shopify location is added, it must be mapped to a DEAR location before partial fulfilment can resume.
  • Go to Setup tab of Shopify integration in DEAR and slide toggle for Enable partial fulfilment

Functionality:

  • Enable partial fulfilment must be active.
  • If the sale order is a simple sale, Convert the sale to an advanced sale.
  • Create a fulfilment for the advanced sale.
  • When DEAR next synchronises with Shopify, the order in Shopify will receive the status Partially fulfilled. Fulfillment information will be exported to Shopify.

NOTE: Fulfillment cannot be carried out in Shopify and DEAR simultaneously. Either fulfilment is carried out in DEAR or it is carried out in Shopify.
