New functionality for the Advanced Transportation Management System is always welcome, especially when users have been looking for the enhancement for literally years. But as Maria describes in detail, the enhancement for batch load confirmation is not quite what it needs to be yet as there is a flaw in the design. There is a possible workaround, but in this author's opinion, it isn't a realistic option. The good news is that there is a Bug ID associated with the enhancement and when it's released, hopefully soon, this new functionality will be very useful in order to expedite load confirmation.

All we can say is "Wow!" This is one of the best, clearest explanations ever written on how to take advantage of an important piece of Transportation functionality, without doing a full blown implementation of Transportation. I'm a big advocate of using pieces of transportation, where appropriate, to "enhance" the Sales Order module. Please note that this applies to OneWorld only. WorldSoftware has similar functionality in its Load and Delivery module.
