Field Description Do not schedule an order to this node more than n days before expected time of shipment Enter the maximum number of business days that a schedule can be sent to a node for it to be fulfilled. This number is used when performing earliest schedule date calculations.Note: This parameter is only considered if the node is pre-specified on the order line. Receiving Calendar Select the calendar to use to determine the available shifts for receiving deliveries at the node. The calendars of the node as well as the calendars of the primary enterprise of the node display in this drop-down list.

Track Inventory Select Track Inventory if you want the ship node to track minimum and maximum inventory levels for an item.

Uncheck this field if you want the node to base shipment time by any given node parameters, such as Minimum Notification Time, and the time a shipment can actually be shipped.
For example, a node works five days a week, with two shifts, 8AM - 4PM and 4PM - 8PM.
The node's Minimum Notification Time is set to 2 hours.
If an order is sent to a node on Friday at 1PM, the order is scheduled to ship on same day at 4PM if Use End Of Shift Time box is checked. The order is scheduled to ship on the same day at 3PM if Use End Of Shift Time box is unchecked.
If an order is sent to a node on Friday at 3PM, the order scheduled to ship on the same day at 8PM if Use End Of Shift Time box is checked. The order is scheduled to ship on the same day at 5PM if Use End Of Shift Time box is unchecked.Note: Use End Of Shift Time is only applicable to nodes that use a shipping calendar that has shift times defined.Note: Use End Of Shift Time is only applicable for product lines.
