If you need to include pickup and delivery date and time on your shipments and you always use the current date, you can configure the date fields to fill in today's date automatically.
If you are booking shipments with pickup and delivery date and time that always follow the same pattern, you can configure the fields to fill in today's date automatically. This is useful if your carrier requires that all shipments are filled in with the current date.
- Go to Main > Production.
- Locate the References section and right click on the field you want to configure, eg. Pickup date start and select Field properties.
- Check the box next to Today and select one of the options from the drop down list. Today will pick the current date. Today +1 will pick tomorrow and Today +2 will pick the day after tomorrow. You can also set the time.
- Click OK to save your settings and select which level the changes should apply to.
