StarShip supports writing freight and tracking information (notes) directly to Shipments. To set up how and what gets written back to Fishbowl, configure the write-back and notes settings found in Fishbowl Setup. To access Settings, select Setup > Source Interfaces > Fishbowl (version), and under Interfaces, select the Customize Interface button for Shipments.
Write-Back Settings define when freight should be written back to Fishbowl when a shipment is processed or voided in StarShip. Freight will write back to the Cost field in the Carton Details when a package is selected from the Carton grid on the General tab of the Ship Details screen.
- Always write freight to the Shipment: When you save or void a shipment in StarShip, the freight amount is automatically written back to the document.
- Prompt shipper to write freight to the Shipment: When you save a shipment in StarShip, the shipper receives a prompt asking if freight should be written back to the document.
- Do not write freight back to the Shipment: Freight is not written back to Fishbowl.
When a shipment is processed in StarShip against a Fishbowl Shipment
This setting defines how the Fishbowl Shipment is treated when the corresponding StarShip shipment is Ship/Processed:
Do not change the Fishbowl Shipment status
Set the Fishbowl Shipment status to “Packed”
Set the Fishbowl Shipment status to “Shipped”
The Notes Settings contain default shipment detail that writes back to Fishbowl for Freight and Parcel shipments. Notes are written back to the Notes memo field on the Details tab of the Ship Details screen. If a shipment is voided, notes will be removed from the Shipment.
The Note Tag is the printed title; the information from the StarShip field on the right will appear next to the Tag words in Fishbowl. You can change the fields that write back by changing the Note Field, or click the “+” (Add Note Setting) to add more fields.
