When a consignment has been completed, the next step is to update it's status to Closed.
Closed consignments drop off the consignment index view and is where consignment charges are finalised. Closing the consignment will raise transactions for the Client Partner which can be added to schedules for invoicing.
If you have yet to calculate charges for the consignment, Consignly may prompt you. If there are no charges required for this consignment, you can check the box to indicate this and continue to close the consignment.

If charges haven't yet been raised, Consignly offers the opportunity to calculate the charges from this screen, and then continue to close the consignment.
If you have not dispatched all the expected product, a warning will be shown to explain this in case there has been some sort of problem.
