Preliminary Order Status

  1. Locate Dedicated 8XX Batch files or specific file.

    The Dedicated Batch files are identified by the dedicated 8xx batch file name under the Parent Order ID / Batch filename column. For Dedicated 8XX Batch:

    • The Order Type is always New/Install
    • The Service Type is always 8XX
    • The Ordering Method is always Dedicated Batch
       

The batch file name (or other option like Ordering Method) can be used to search/filter the order list. Please note that the search is case sensitive. Example searches using all or part of a batch file name: 01032018TEAMTAD.TXT or using an asterisk for wildcard search: 01032018TEAMTAD* or *01032018, etc.

In the below screenshot, Ordering Method of Dedicated Batch was used:
