Drop Ship workflow status for Fulfilment
The current way Dear handles Drop Ship inventory is to immediately take the sales order to 'Invoicing' stage. This is even before the supplier receives the PO, let alone allowing lead time for them to produce/process the order. As a result Dear incorrectly shows the order as having already shipped, and it won't show up when sorted the main Sales view by "Awaiting Fulfilment". Best practice is more likely to be not progress to ship/invoicing until the related, auto-generated drop ship PO has it's invoice stage authorized.
