Selecting Search Orders/Invoices in the OASIS main menu will open up two options allowing the user to find information on both firm and approval title orders in the first tab and standing orders in the second tab.
The first tab for Firm/Approval Orders provides a number of filtering options that are automatically selected: Open, Fulfilled, Cancelled. Those can be unchecked as needed. To cast a wide search, no other parts of the form need to be filled out. Just click Search to get all results. (You can also specify if you are looking for "iFound" orders only just by ticking that box.)
- The Transaction Date box has a calendar next to it. Click on that for ease in selecting dates or ranges of dates.
- Use the Mulitple ISBN selector before entering many ISBNs at a time. A dialogue box will appear allowing you to include many at a time.
- If you wish to search a range of Purchase Order Numbers and your order numbers have common letters and/or figures at the beginning, you can search using a truncated entry followed by an asterisk. For example,if you have a range of order numbers from LIB-100000 to LIB-109999, you can look at 'all' by entering just LIB-10*. To narrow the search to orders in the range LIB-101000 to LIB-101999, use LIB-101*, etc.
