Watchlist is a feature for Ingrid Transport Automation with which a user or a group can follow up and keep track on shipments. Shipments that are added to the watchlist can be followed up on based on status events taking place.
What is a watchlist
Watchlist is a follow up feature supporting Transport Automation users to keep track of specific orders. A user can select shipments from the Shipments Page and add them to their personal watchlist. A shipment that is on a watchlist can then be shared and/or monitored.
The goal of the watchlist feature is to secure that you as a user can "save" shipment in a list to revisit this shipment at a later stage. This means that a user can secure that e.g. a manually placed or is actually pickup from the warehouse and/or is delivered to the end consumer within a certain date. Basically securing that certain shipments are processed the right way.
A shipment that has been place in a watchlist can be monitored. Monitoring is setup by selecting a shipment from the watchlist and clicking Monitor Shipment. User is the presented with the following options:
Time based notification
- User will at the decided date get an update on the status of the selected shipment in the Merchant Platform
Status and time based notification
- Means that user gets a notification of the shipment has fail to get the set status at a given date and time.
Status based notification
- Means that user is notified when the shipment reaches the selected status event.
Notifications listing and Pending notifications
