Shipments: defining hold types

Shipments can be placed on hold manually or automatically by applying a particular hold type.

Certain transactions can be configured to ensure that shipments put on hold are not processed. Likewise, modification types can be configured to ensure shipments that are on hold are not processed. By default, all transactions and modification types are allowed to process all documents for all hold types.

To prevent transactions from processing shipments that are put on hold, in the Others tab in the Transaction Detail screen, check the "This Transaction Can Be Stopped From Processing Shipments That Are On Hold" box.

To create, modify, and delete hold types, from the tree in the application rules side panel, choose Document Specific > (Document Type) > Outbound Logistics > Hold Types.
