    Good Day Community,
    Looking to see if there is a solution for the following?  I am still new to this community and not sure on how to phrase the challenges I am facing.

    We are looking to be able to update the transfer orders ETA's after it has been put into transit.  Currently the "Shipping Time" under the Shipping header is locked.  Is there a way with out customization to unlock this so we can update the TO's ETA?

    Thanks for your help.

    You can update the individual lines Receipt Date. There are a few steps as follows:
    1. Reopen the Transfer Order
    2. Update each line
    3. Release the Transfer Order

    Also, to better estimate the Receipt Date up front (prior to shipping out the transfer order) so that you don't have to update it frequently is to set up the Shipping Agent Code and Shipping Agent Service Code, which allows you to pre-define and assign the Shipping Time field.  Example, if you apply a Shipping Agent "OWNTRUCK" and Shipping Agent Service Code "3DAY", then ship it out, the Receipt date will auto-populate as 5/8.

    Thanks for the insight Ken.  I appreciate it.      It's one of those where we are getting updates from our freight forwards with ETA including dwell time and in today's climate those arrival dates change frequently.

    Jerome - If the ship side of the Transfer has been posted and you just want to have the system move out the Planned Receipt date on this one Transfer you could Open the Transfer and update the 'Inbound Whse. Handling Time' to 7D as an example. The system will recalc the Receipt Date for you. Note if you change the Receipt Date the Shipment Date gets recalculated which may or may not be important to you since it already has been shipped.

    Best Regards

    Hello John,
    Thank you for taking the time to reply to this discussion.  I never thought to use the warehouse handling time to adjust the actual arrival time.

    Thanks for the insight.  I appreciate it.
