Managing Order Cutoff Notifications

Cutoff notifications are a useful way to be reminded to place orders with vendors before ordering deadlines. This article describes how to setup the different notifications.

With order cutoff notifications you can choose to be notified approximately two hours before your ordering deadline if an order has not yet been placed for the week. You can choose which vendors to receive notifications for (for example, you may only wish to receive notifications for those vendors you order from regularly) as follows:

  1. In the navigation menu go to Orders > Manage Vendors
  2. Click on a vendor to edit or add a new vendor
  3. Add a Delivery Day and Order Cutoff Time (deadline to order)
  4. Check the box that says Receive Cutoff Notification
  5. Click the Save button

You can choose where to receive the notifications as follows:

  1. Email notification
  2. Mobile push notification - requires you to have logged in from a mobile device at least one time
  3. Web in-app message - you'll receive a message notification in the top navigation bar of Backbar

To setup which notifications to receive, click on the user icon in the top right corner and then click User Profile.  Scroll down to Notification Preferences as shown below.
