- The position of this stage is editable via
[ Sales Invoice | Other Actions Menu | Edit Process Path ].
- You can configure the system so that a Sales Order can't be moved past this stage unless it has a Consignment Reference, see How To: Prevent a Sales Order from moving past the Shipping Stage without a Consignment Reference.
