View all unallocatable orders daily

Want to be able to have visibility to all of your unallocatable orders everyday? Here is a quick recipe to do this while using Infoblocks.

  • Set up a smart filter in the Orders table by creating a search criteria of all orders with the status of On Order and the tag ipsystem-dnf-ua which means Infoplus System-Do Not Fulfill-Unallocatable (this is a system tag that will automatically apply to orders that are not fulfillable)
  • Save and name this smart filter
  • Go to the Manage Smart Filters table and click on the star next to the filter to add it as a favorite. This will add this smart filter directly to your dashboard for quicker access

This gives you daily visibility to your smart filter and makes it easily accessible. If you would like to display your unallocatable orders on your dashboard or get a report for these orders below are a few other things that will make this smart filter visible:


To display on your dashboard:

  • Click on the gear icon (Manage Metrics) in the Metrics section on your dashboard
