Original Confirmation

Original Confirmation lets you keep original ETA Dates for items on Orders and PO's.

OC Dates keep the original, confirmed ETA for items, while the real ETA may change. This gives you an additional date on each Line Item for exporting for external reporting.

Enabled in Company card, Advanced Options, OC Dates require an Enterprise license. They appear on Expanded tabs of Sales Order and Purchase Order and Detail Exports.
