  2. Under Grid View, select Expanded.
  3. Click Apply.

Hotkeys and shortcuts

Select multiple orders in the orders grid:

When editing order information in a modal/pop-up in the Orders grid:
  1. Press the ESC key to close the modal (without saving), or:
  2. Press the ENTER or RETURN key to save and close the modal.

Edit order information from the orders grid

You can make edits to orders directly from the orders grid, meaning you don't need to open each order individually.

You can edit the following from within the Orders grid:

  • Customer/receiver address
  • Item(s) and item information
  • SKU(s)
  • Carrier product options (i.e. ATL/Signature required)
  • Packaging dimensions


To edit the receiver address for an order, click the edit icon in the Customer column and update as required, then click Save.

Creating and accessing views

You can save customised views of orders with different filters to easily access them.

To create and save a new view

  1. From the orders grid, click the Filter orders field on the top left.
  2. Select an option to filter by, or select multiple options.
    For example, "Carrier: Australia Post" and "State: NSW".
  3. The filters will be applied once clicked.
  4. To save these filters as a view, click Save as a view next to the Filter orders drop-down menu.
  5. Enter a unique name for the view then click Save.

If there's an option you’d like to filter by but it's not available in the preset, you can use tags instead.

  1. Navigate to SettingsTags.
  2. Click Add new to create a tag to filter by.
  3. After adding your tags, navigate to Rules.
  4. Click Add a new rule.
    For this example, if the order value is over $500, assign tag High Value.
  5. Now, filter your order grid for orders with the tag High Value and save this so you can easily view your high value orders.

To access a saved view

  1.  From the orders grid, click on the Select view drop-down menu on the top left.
  2. Select a view by clicking on its name.
