Order milestones mark each stage in the production cycle for an order and have corresponding dates for when you expect each milestone to begin or end. You can add or edit these dates by updating the status of any order.

This article covers:

How order milestones work

Date Logic
Production start date
  • Your brand can mute optional milestones.
  • If you provide a production start date that is in the past, Anvyl marks the production start milestone as confirmed.
  • If you provide a production start date that is a future date, Anvyl doesn’t mark the production start milestone as confirmed. 

Anvyl automatically checks on the production start date to confirm the production status.

Estimated ship date
  • Your brand can mark this milestone as optional.
  • If you provide an estimated ship date that is in the past, Anvyl marks your order as shipped.
  • If you provide an estimated ship date that is < 7 days in the future, Anvyl marks the order as on track to ship.
  • If you provide an estimated ship date that is > 7 days in the future, Anvyl doesn’t mark the order as shipped.

Anvyl automatically checks 7 days prior to the ship date and again on the ship date itself to confirm the shipment status. The brand can customize the milestone dates.

Delivery date

If you provide a delivery date that is in the past, Anvyl marks the order as delivered.

How to update the order status by email

If this is the first purchase order from Anvyl that you’re updating, you’ll need to authenticate your account in Anvyl before you can make any changes to an order. Learn more on how to do that here.
