Going Pink Dates at least?
Posted: Thursday, December 06, 2018 4:38:04 AM
I just lost a fabulous sale of over a $100.00 (that was not third party) due to everything arrived the day after her party! She even paid for expedited shipping. The only way I was able to figure it out was because she had emailed me last Friday in tears looking for her order. Had I never heard from her I would not have been able to figure out what the heck went pink yesterday.

It would be sooooo wonderful if you could at least give us a date next to the order when it goes pink. I do not need to have a reason, I have given up asking for that to be coded say in this case it would have been shipping or S but really this particular sale I had to go back to 11/20 and it was like on page 5/6 and actually was mixed in with another sale that was canceled and reordered so it just melded in with another one. I had to go look for her email and then scan for her first name to finally figure it out and then the math worked out perfectly. Had I never gotten that email it would have taken much much longer to figure this out. (I like to keep a running tally of my summary credits for this very reason to know what cancels.)

I just don't get why a return DATE is a secret?

Please reconsider this
Thank you Love

You're right, it's hard to find what cancelled. I'd love it if we could go to "Royalty History," choose "Edit Filters - Show Only Cancellations" and be able to sort them by "Most Recent." Smile

Yes, that's the sort I'm talking about. But it doesn't show the cancels by most recent.

For example, if you have an order that doesn't go pink for quite awhile (like the original poster's example), it's hard to pinpoint what cancelled that day. Smile

Being able to sort the cancels by "Most Recent" would save a lot of searching.

A "most recent" option would be a perfect solution! It's so hard to hunt down cancellations.

I think it would be good for customers, if for event date sensitive orders like Party, Shower & Wedding Invitations, if Zazzle could add a space to the order form for customers to fill in "Latest Date Needed By," so it could be properly prioritized for production and shipping.

Then, based on that info, Customer Service ought to get flagged within a certain space of time, if the order hasn't yet shipped, to communicate with that customer proactively.

Fabulous idea!

She even paid for rush shipping (well that is what she told me) but I think this is a great idea! I get many emails asking if I can send their order faster? lol I think they think I am an elf or something making this stuff in my basement ha

YES! This would be a very useful filter to have...especially as some cancellations go way back beyond 30 days!

I've always thought the item should turn red in the ledger when it happens. For instance, if it just went red, it should be at the top like the sales. Pretty much the same thing everyone else is saying.

I never understood why the actual sale turns red. It's simple accounting to me. The product still sold.

Considering we get probably a jillion orders daily and depending on the maker, I imagine this would be a headache to deal with, especially with this feature customers would just pick the earliest date and essentially everything would be labeled high prioritized. I think our estimated delivery times and manufacturing times we provide customers on the product page and throughout check out helps give our customers the correct info since most of our products require more than a day to produce. We want to set them up with the right expectations.

I do agree that if the estimated delivery time they were given, and orders haven't even shipped yet, to notify our customers via e-mail of the delay! So happy to pass that onSmile
