Working with ASNs

Viewing ASNs

Click on the ASN icon () on the menu. The Advance Ship Notices page appears where you can view the advance ship notices (ASNs) you sent to your customers.

When you send an ASN to a customer, the PO status changes to Issued even if you haven't sent them an invoice yet.

Viewing ASNs for Specific Customers

Select a customer from the Select Customer dropdown list under the Menu icon (). 

The first time you go to the Advance Ship Notices page, you have to choose a customer. The next time you visit this page, it returns to the last customer you selected.

The Advance Ship Notices table lists all the ASNs you sent to that customer.  You can use the search bar to filter the list with a search term, or click on the View dropdown to perform advanced filtering. For more info on advanced filtering, see Creating Custom Views

You can also see the status of your ASNs. When a customer receives your shipment, the ASN status changes to Partially Received or Fully Received, depending on what items they received. You can also cancel the ASN. The status appears as Cancelled to the customer.
