Progress report

Shipments selection

Go to the Shipments dashboard in the AfterShip Tracking admin
Select the tickbox for Showing 50 shipments to select all the 50 shipments displayed on the current shipment dashboard

A maximum of 50 shipments are displayed on the shipment dashboard at a time

Click Select all shipments to select all the shipments on every page of your AfterShip Tracking shipment dashboard

You can also select shipments in bulk based on specific criteria by sorting and filtering shipments by status, carrier, origin, destination, tags, ship date, pickup date, source, issues, and more.

Bulk actions

Once shipments are bulk-selected, you can take bulk actions for the selected shipments. This means you don’t have to make the same change in each shipment individually. Instead, with this functionality, all the shipments will be automatically updated with the change by just performing it once.

To perform bulk actions for the selected shipments, click More actions
Select the action you want to perform from the dropdown menu
Click Confirm
You can also use Add tags to add shipment tags for organizing, filtering and sorting shipments efficiently.
Enter a tag in the Search or create tags field
If the tag you’ve input is already there, it will show up in the dropdown
If the tag you’ve input is new, click Create and then Confirm

Here’s the list of actions you can perform for bulk shipments

Add tags - Create and add tags to shipments

You can add up to 10 tags at once

More actions

Maximize efficiency with a range of bulk actions available for your shipments under More actions:
