Searching for a Sales Order

Search fields included in any search are used with AND logic where all terms included must be true for a result set. Wildcard searches can be made using the percent (%) symbol, which represents zero or more characters.

Some criteria types are preceded with an asterisk (*). For example, *Order No. or *Shipping Order No. These are single criteria searches and can't be further refined by additional search criteria. For example, if *Order No. and Alerted are both selected as the search criteria, the search only shows a list of orders and will not show alerted orders.

When a customer inquires about an existing order, you can search for the order in Customer Service Center as follows:

  1. In Order Management Customer Service Center: click Find Orders from the Actions menu.
    The Existing Order Search form opens. Along the top of the page are the search criteria fields, which you can use to filter your search results.
  2. Select a tag to search.
    You can create tags and assign them to an order for searching, filtering, and importing through the job system. Configure tags in Order Management Administration: Settings > Objects.
    Note: When an object is tagged, it appears in the System Events in the Details section.
  3. Select the search criteria from one or more lists.
