In this setup area you may create a list of the various shipping methods that are used by your company. Each shipping method may also be associated with an on-line courier tracking service. The shipping methods entered here will be available in dropdown lists for the Ship Via entry field on customer accounts, vendor accounts, repair orders, sales invoices, credit notes, and purchase orders.
Select Setup Lists Shipping Methods from the main menu to open the shipping methods setup area.
If the option has been enabled, you will first be prompted with the question: Do you want to extract newly entered shipping methods from customers, vendors, repair orders, sales invoices, credit notes, and purchase orders? (See module option “Prompt to extract newly entered Shipping Methods” under Setup Module Options.) Click the Yes button to automatically create new records for shipping methods that were manually entered in the Ship Via field in the various modules listed in the prompt, and that do not already exist in the shipping methods table (see Customer - Defaults Tab, Vendor - Defaults Tab, Repair Order - Customer Tab, Sales Invoice - Customer Address Tab, Credit Note - Customer Address Tab, and Purchase Order - Vendor Tab). Click the No button or press the Esc key to ignore the request.
The shipping methods setup module may be renamed with a custom caption (see Custom Captions).
