There are times when an interruption of delivery to an area/region of the country occurs due to storms and other occurrences beyond our control. CODIS allows you to accept orders and place them on zip code hold thereby making them available for release once the carriers resume delivery to the area/region. In order entry, use order option “!” to place the order on zip code hold.
You can automatically place orders and backorder releases on zip code hold to a specific zip code by flagging the daszip.das record. A ‘Y’ in field 10 of the record indicates the zip code is on hold.
Records can be flagged in mass when necessary using input from a csv file and utility program.
