Fishbowl Options

Fishbowl Options allow you to configure Related Documents, Source Documents, and other Fishbowl-specific settings.

Options available for the Fishbowl interface can be accessed by selecting Setup > Source Interfaces > Fishbowl 2020-2021, and clicking on Options.

When checked, StarShip will show documents with the same Ship-To addresses, allowing you the possibility of combining related documents. Related documents are shown in the Shipment Editor and can be grouped together by selecting the Group Related check box.

Retrieve related documents


When importing a document that has an existing non-posted shipment, always
  • Prompt: Prompt the user for action. The prompt will include the options to Create New, View, or Edit. Note that View is only available for Processed shipments; Draft (Open) shipments will always open in Edit mode.
  • Create New: StarShip will automatically create a new shipment from the data being imported from the source interface without prompting the user.
  • Edit Existing: Set the existing document to “Open” status so that it can be edited.
  • View Existing: Open the existing shipment in View-only mode.
StarShip will search for any draft shipment or shipment processed within the last “#” days

When importing a document from Fishbowl, StarShip will scan all open (draft) shipments, and only the processed shipments within the number of days you set here, for shipments that may already exist for that document. So, for example, if you add an order to a shipment you’ve already saved or processed in StarShip, you can reprocess the shipment with the new order added without voiding write-back or tracking numbers. Note that you cannot set the number of days if you set the option above it to Create New.

Run in Diagnostic Mode

Check this option to have StarShip run in a special diagnostic mode that shows the raw input from the source interface before any mapping or translations are performed on it. When enabled, a Show Diagnostics button appears on the source interface tab. Clicking the Show Diagnostics button will display the input information from the source interface in raw message format for Technical Support purposes.

Enable logging of Fishbowl transactions

StarShip will run in a special mode that provides more information to aid Technical Support. You can also specify Normal or Maximum levels of logging.

Disable Search of Source Documents

This option controls searching for Fishbowl documents in the Shipment Editor. When it is checked, StarShip will not display the Search Documents grid and will require that you enter the exact Document Number (i.e. Sales Order or Shipment Number).

Refresh List of Source Documents after shipping

When this option is checked, StarShip will update the list of Fishbowl documents in the Documents grid after you process a shipment. New documents are retrieved and shipments no longer matching the filters will not be seen. The default setting is checked.
