Filter Orders Legacy Layout

Filters allow you to view orders that match only your selected criteria, like Destination, Tag, Store, and many others. Combine filters for a powerful way to quickly view priority orders or orders that need special attention.

There are two methods for using filters in ShipStation Legacy. In method one you'll apply filters directly in the Orders grid. In method two you'll build and save a collection of filters you can then access in the Orders grid or use with automation rules.

Filter Orders Method One

Note

Each criterion must be met for the filter to show the order. Because of this, we recommend you keep the number of criteria low as you add them. The lower the number of criteria to be met, the more likely you will filter usable results.

You can save this filtered view in two ways: Saved Filters or Saved Views.

Filter Orders Method Two

The filters you save in this method will appear under the Saved Filters menu in the Orders tab and are available to all users on the account.
