You can search for an order via the Orders page in FoodStorm. In the top-left corner of the page is a Search field.
To quickly find an order, type a contact name, company name or order number into the search field and press Enter.
Any orders that match your criteria will be returned, ordered by most recent first.
Basic Searching Examples
- To find order number 1020, type 1020 into the search field and press Enter.
- To find all orders for the contact Anne Jones, type anne jones into the search field and press Enter. Alternatively you could just type the contacts first name anne or her last name jones.
- To find all orders for the company Widget Co, type widget co into the search field and press Enter. You can also type just the beginning part of the company, e.g. wid to save time.
Tip: Search queries are not case sensitive, so you don't need to capitalise names etc.
You can perform more specific searching by adding search operators to your search query. The following operators are available:
|after:||Only return orders after a certain delivery date.||
after: 20 jan
|before:||Only return orders before a certain delivery date.||before: 20 jan

|ot:||Search by customer order type (you set these up on the settings page).||ot: cocktail

|status:||Search by order status: Cancelled, confirmed, Pending, Invoiced||
You can just type the first (few) letter(s) of the status you want.

Using Multiple Search Operators
You can add search operators to the end of a basic search query, and you can also use multiple operators in a query. Here are some examples:
- anne on: 20 jan will return all orders for Anne on the 20th of Jan only.
- status: canc after: 20 jan will return all cancelled orders after the 20th of Jan.
- after: 20 Jan before: 25 Jan will return all orders between the 20th-25th of Jan.
