Manifest Statuses

A manifest is a digital list of items from a store being sent to e-commerce to sell online. Each manifest has a status that represents where it is in the supply chain as it progresses from stores to being listed online.

  • Created: Represents a manifest that has been started but may not be ready for transfer to e-commerce

  • Ready for Pickup: Used by store teams to indicate that the manifest is ready to be shipped to e-commerce for processing

  • In Transit: Indicates the manifest has been collected by the transportation team and is on the way to e-commerce

  • Received: Used by e-commerce teams to indicate that the manifest has arrived at the facility

  • Missing: If a manifest can’t be found, stores, drivers, or e-commerce can mark the manifest as missing to help with loss prevention investigations

  • Partially Processed: A manifest received by e-commerce and being inspected

  • Processed: A manifest that has been fully inspected by e-commerce

Options for Scanning Manifests

When a store is ready to transfer manifests to e-commerce, they update the status to “Ready for Pickup” and can print either a manifest sheet, manifest barcode, or manifest scan form. These can be scanned with an iOS device to change manifest statuses to “In Transit.”

Manifest Sheets

  • Manifest sheets are a printed list of every item in a container being transferred to e-commerce

  • The top right corner of the manifest sheet has a Manifest barcode that transportation teams can scan to update the status of the manifest to “In Transit”

Manifest Barcodes

  • Stores with a label printer can print just the manifest barcode from the manifest sheet on a 1-1/8" x 3-1/2" label

Manifest Scan Forms

  • Manifest scan sheets are printed sheets that transportation teams can use to bulk update the status of multiple manifests from "Ready for Pickup" to "In Transit"

  • The top of a manifest scan form has a “Quick Scan” barcode that controls the status of all related manifests on the printout
