Inwards consignments have various statuses that they can move through on their journey from creation to completion.
When a consignment moves into a status, it can cause Consignly to perform actions on the data in the consignment. You can move a consignment into a status by clicking that status.
For example, charges may be raised, received goods may be transacted into the warehouse, and stock levels may be impacted, having a flow on effect on storage calculations and other warehouse-related activities.
Inwards consignments have the following status options:
The Pending status is the initial state of the consignment. It remains in this state while details about the consignment are entered, and products are added to the consignment.
Ready to Receive
The Ready to Receive status indicates that the consignment details have been entered, and the products are ready to receive into store. This puts the consignment into a mode that supports receiving the goods.
The Complete status indicates the goods have been received, and the consignment is completed pending charges being calculated and/or raised.
The Closed status is the final part of the inwards consignment journey. When a consignment is closed no further changes can be made to it.
If you have the appropriate permissions, you can re-open a consignment that has been closed.
A lightning bolt may appear next to different statuses on a consignment. This indicates there is an app trigger configured for this consignment. An app trigger may be used to trigger a push of consignment data to a TMS system or other third-party integration. Connected Apps can be viewed in the Apps tab on a consignment.
