Using preliminary order status

  1. Click Orders, click Order Status, then click Preliminary Order Status.

    Control Center shows all pending orders and orders completed within the past 90 days for Switched Batch, Dedicated Batch, and DTFO. Control Center also lists your View/Modify Call Plan changes and your OLOF orders.
Preliminary Order Status


After selecting one of the criteria in the Search For list, a field will appear to the right of the list. You can use the enter key on your keyboard, or click the >> icon to the right of the Search field, to launch the search/filter. Click Reset to clear a search/filter and reload the default screen showing all orders from last 90 days.

Use  Search For… to filter your orders by parent order ID, product account ID, order type, service type, status, PON, account name, or ordering method.

For example, you would select Ordering Method in the “Search for…” drop down menu, then you could enter Switched Batch, Dedicated Batch, DTFO, OnLine Order Form, etc

The Search functionality is case sensitive.  For example, type DTFO rather than dtfo. You can use asterisks for wildcard search. For example, searching On* will show OnLine Order Form orders.

The table illustrates Parent Order ID, Order Type, Service Type and Ordering Method for each ordering tool/type:
