SHIPMENT TRACKING There are three ways for users to track shipments: 1) Shipment Calendar



2) Shipment Grid 3) Global Search


Option One - Shipment Calendar Access the Shipment Calendar by clicking on the tile provided on the MySEKO Harmony homepage . Depending on each user’s level of access ( Domestic and/or International ) the available calendars will appear. Example: if a user is setup ONLY as a Domesti c user, they will only see a Domestic Shipment Calendar .

Users can modify the calendar display by selecting from drop-downs provided on the left-hand side of the page. Options to adjust “ View By ” date, “ Display As ” format and “ Color ” schematic are available with drop-

down options (highlighted above, left). The upper-right hand side of the page controls the calendar display by Month , Week or Day . The calendar will reflect any changes made to these settings. Hovering a mouse over any particular shipment will cause a window to appear with some basic shipment details, notably the shipment Status and Tracking Number .




MySEKO Harmony • User Guide • Page 16

All shipments that are visible on the Shipment Calendar are hyperlinked; clicking one of the hyperlinked shipments, a new window will appear, titled “ North American / International Order Tracker. ” This will contain all of the order details, including POD Details, Status, Details (line item, outer/inner package details), Documents , Financial, Issue Management , Container details ( INTL only ), Customs ( INTL only ), Purchase Order Information (if user is setup on SEKO PO Management – contact your local SEKO Sales Representative for more information), GPS Tracking (if applicable) and Tradeshow details (if applicable). Simply click on the Tab headers to the right-hand side of the shipment header information to toggle between them.

Users can send Shipment Details to external parties by clicking on the envelope icon on the left-hand side of the North American Order Tracker page . Key in the e-mail addresses included (separate each e-mail address with a semi-colon or a comma). Users may modify the subject line if inclined; otherwise, the default Subject line will indicate that this is a Notification regarding the Order Status of a shipment number (below). Include a Bill of Lading to the e-mail by checking the box provided. Select “ Send ” to complete the e-mail.

Lastly, users may Export the Shipment Calendar into alternative document types, including XLS , CSV , RTF , XLSX . Select a file type on the upper right- hand side of the page and select “ Export ” to complete.

Option Two - Shipment Grid The Shipment Grid offers a more detailed view of all Shipment Details . Menu options listing shipment types are located at the top of the page (highlighted below). Selecting between shipment types will filter the table below (i.e. Domestic , International , Tradeshow , etc.). Search within the table by modifying the Begin and End Date to limit shipment results. Customizing the Shipment Grid can be done by dragging and dropping column headers to modify the order of information displayed, or by selecting the “ Customize ” button located on the lower left-hand side of the page.

MySEKO Harmony • User Guide • Page 17

Users may also Export the Shipment Grid by selecting a file type and clicking on the “ Export ” button provided.

All columns on the Shipment Grid are searchable. The example to thr right shows a user searching for all AIR shipments entered into MySEKO Harmony over the past 15 days:

The beauty of this table is that users may apply as many searches/filters that they wish and export the table, thus creating an ad-hoc report. The Shipment Grid is hyperlinked. Double-clicking on a shipment Number will open up a new window containing all Live Order Tracking details for that shipment.

Icons located in the “ Actions ” column on the Shipment Grid are shortcuts: - Truck icon: Select to create a Return - Stamp icon: Select to Clone a shipment - Documents icon: Click to access all Documents on that shipment - GPS icon: Click to view mapped Geoview of satellite shipment location data

- Envelope icon: Select to e-mail/share order tracking and details.

MySEKO Harmony • User Guide • Page 18

Option Three - Global Search The Global Search functionality in MySEKO Harmony allows for users to search for any search term or Reference listed on a shipment/order. Users may be as specific or non-specific as they choose, depending upon the search being attempted. Consider this a “ Google Search ” for your supply chain. The number of results pulled as a result of the search will be shown on the left-hand side of the page, along with the amount of time it took for the site to pull those results. Keep in mind, the broader the search, the more results are going to pull. All Search Results will be hyperlinked. Clicking on a search result will pull the Live Order Tracking Information for that order.
