We are moving from Hold Reasons which were common to all accounts to Exception codes which can be configured by Account as Hold Reason, Pickup Exception, Delivery Exception, Checkpoint Exception and Item Exception.
Drivers had to pick and choose the correct Hold reason depending on the order Account. With the new Exception feature, you can set the exception codes by Account.
Here are examples when you can use the different types of Exception Codes:
Exception Code of Type Hold
These will work the same as the Hold Reasons that we had previously except they can be different by schedule. A schedule will be associated to an Account.
On upgrade, the Hold Reasons were transferred automatically as Exception Codes and added to a Default Exception Code Schedule which was associated to all Accounts.
If no changes are done to the schedule, the Hold will work the same for both Dispatchers and Drivers.

This is a new type of exception that can be added at Checkpoint. Before exception codes, items could be set as damaged, and if not scanned on an order that had more than one item where at least one was scanned, as missing.
You can now create exception codes of type Checkpoint to indicate where the item was marked as damaged with additional information, was this damaged at reception or was it damaged in the warehouse for instance.
