This article describes how to set up status list and status groups in administration section.
By default system has the set of statuses enough for real work with orders.
If the default status set is not enough, you can create a new one or edit the existing one. Simply press the button or the link with status name. In both cases a form of status editing will open.
This form requires filling of all the fields:
- Status name
- Symbolic code - is needed when addressing system through API. The symbolic code is specified when changing the order status through API for databooks fields (order type, delivery type, payment type and other).
- Ordering - is important for the algorithm of moving from status to status. For example, if the status “New” has ordering 10, then the “Delivering” status should have bigger ordering, in our case its 20, as the “Delivering” status goes after the “New” status. You can specify any number more than 10. Statues of the same status group, can have the same ordering.
Status groups are set by default and you cannot change them. You can see status names, symbolic code, ordering and sort them out in the status group table.
