Archiving orders with ShippyPro is easy and simple.
As soon as your shipping labels are created and your sales channels and carriers updated, you need to archive them from Label Creator > Shipping Labels.
You can archive your orders singularly, in bulk or automatically with a cron job.
Let's see how it works! 🔍
1. Archive your orders singularly 📁
From Label Creator > Shipping Labels, click on the blue folder icon under the column Action to archive the order.
You'll then find all archived orders for a maximum of 60 days by default under Views > My Archived Orders.
2. Archive orders in bulk
You can either archive all orders from the page Shipping Labels or archive only selected order/s by ticking them manually:
To archive all orders, click on Management > Archive all orders.
Note: Please note that even orders with the status Incomplete will be archived.
To archive only selected order/s, you can tick them manually.
As soon as you've selected your orders, click on the blue button Management > Archive selected order to archive them.
You'll then find all the archived orders for a maximum of 90 days under Views > My Archived Orders.
3. Archive orders automatically with Cron Job ⚙️
With Cron Jobs, you can spare a lot of time by automating some repetitive processes.
You can, in fact, schedule tasks to run at a specified frequency from Admin > Cron Jobs.
The Cron Job "Archive Orders" automatically archives your orders. So you don't have to do it every day. It's particularly useful when dealing with lots of orders a day.
To put this process in autopilot, you'll only need to set the time when you'd like ShippyPro to archive orders for you and enable the cron job.
Once enabled, you'll see the last execution date and time.
Note: Please remember that if you ship orders after the time you set for the Cron Job, they won't be archived automatically. You'll then need to archive them manually.
