Assign Orders to Retailers with JOOR

Posted by JOOR on Wed, Sep 4, '19

Users now have a self-serve tools to assign orders themselves on the web.

Unassigned orders have become unsustainable and unmanageable on JOOR. Users can create unassigned orders on the app but they cannot resolve them or assign them themselves, which is problematic because 1) They must rely on JDT to assign orders for them, which is a heavy internal lift and 2) Waiting on JDT to assign orders for them means it takes longer for them to finalize/export orders. In Q1 2019 alone, 10% of orders- nearly 55,000- were unassigned. This took up ~450 hours of JDT’s time to resolve them.

We are looking to give our users self-serve tools they can use to assign orders themselves on web. They will be able to:

  • View which orders are unassigned
  • Filter to view unassigned orders
  • Assign orders to a retailer

What’s new in this release?

View Unassigned Orders

  • On the orders list page, there is now a yellow indicator on each order that is unassigned 
  • Users can hover over the yellow indicator to view a tooltip with a message that the order needs to be assigned to a retailer account

Unassigned order 1


“Only Unassigned Orders” filter

  • If users click on this checkbox, then the orders list will filter to display only unassigned orders

Unassigned order 2

Assign orders to a retailer account

You can now assign retailers to an order! Users can use this action to assign a retailer to any order- unassigned orders OR orders that were already assigned to another retailer.


  • This new action can be found by selecting 1+ orders on the orders list page and clicking into the bulk actions dropdown on the bottom of the screen

Unassigned order 3

  • Users can search for an existing retail connection in the modal, and then assign that retailer to their selected order(s)
    • Note: the retailer dropdown takes geo-restrictions into account
