47.1 Sales Held Order Release Mobile Applications Overview

You use the Sales Held Order Release mobile applications to review and release the sales orders being held in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system. To have the system process an order that is on hold, you must release the hold by using the correct password.

The intended user of these applications is an authorized personnel, such as a credit manager, responsible for reviewing and releasing the sales order holds.

You can review all types of holds on a specific sales order and select the holds that you want to release.

The Sales Held Order Release applications for tablet and smartphone enable you to:

  • Review the percentage of sales held orders by hold code on a pie chart.

  • Review order-level details for sales held orders.

  • Review line-level details for sales held orders.

  • Release sales held orders.
