Orders that are in the radar tab may not need to be updated, this tab is mainly to help you understand orders where fulfillment is coming up quickly. This is to help you keep an eye on orders that need attention and gives you easy access to add shipping information or request updates to current orders.
The Radar view will display orders that the Vendor Commit Date is within a specific time frame (default is 7 days but the buyer may adjust). The Vendor Commit will reflect the most current date propose or agreeed upon by the supplier. That could be either the Due Date or Ship Date -whichever one you are collaborate on with the buyer company. The radar range can be set for 2, 3, 7, 14, 21, 30, 45 and 60 days.
Understanding the View
When you are on the Tasks view, you can look at all orders that need to be highlighted due to a radar status under the Radar tab.
You can click through each PO line (in the middle column) which will change the PO details and actions that are displayed in the column on the right.
