Change status of new order to "In Progress"
All my items are handmade to order and so I need to be able to manage my orders better by changing the status of 'New' orders first to "In Progress" when the items are being made including the ability to 'assign work' by adding a name of a colleague against the order so I know who is making what. Once items are complete I can then then go ahead and apply postage. It would also be a real asset to be able to print a report of order details by work assigned according to each colleague or just by orders selected. Thank you
Perhaps this request should be extended to have a user custom status. A user can add any new status options they choose for their own sorting purposes. These additional status options would not mean anything to Click and Drop, they would just allow users to sort by those status options.
The example given is a good one, another might be that there is a problem with an order such as missing address details or suspected fraud where the order should be placed on hold while further information is gathered. It would then prevent another user from accidentally dispatching an order that needs to be held back.
