Adding tracking information to sales orders in Katana enhances the transparency and efficiency of the shipping process. This guide covers how to insert tracking numbers and URLs directly into sales orders, facilitating easy monitoring of shipment statuses.

Tracking information is added during the shipping process once labels have been printed and assigned.

Katana supports adding a shipping partner's tracking number and online tracking URL directly to a sales order (SO).

Note: In order to help automate your shipping workflows, Katana supports tracking information via our public API to be used to integrate with external shipping platforms.

Adding tracking info to a sales order

  1. Open Katana and create a SO or open an existing one.

  2. Click on the Tracking info field to add or edit info.

    • Carrier - Add what service carrier is being used (i.e. USPS, FedEx)

    • Method - Allows you to add they type of shipping and/or way the order is shipped

  4. Click OK once you have entered the info.
