Global Settings and Shipping

By default SIMMS auto-ships your sales orders, invoices, RMAOUTs, and RTVPUTs. This means these documents are given the status of Shipped and they are not listed in the Shipping Manager.

If, however, you do want process your shipments with SIMMS' Shipping Manager, you need to clear the Use AutoShip for invoices check box in Global Settings. SIMMS will then list in the Shipping Manager your invoices, sales orders, RMAOUTs and RTVOUTs.

You can have SIMMS only list only your invoices in the Shipping Manager. You do this to ensure only invoiced items are shipped.
