Delivery drivers need to view delivery tasks assigned to them, mark deliveries as complete, and record confirmation of delivery for organization records. Delivery tasks created either via DEAR POS or via the DEAR web portal will be passed to DEAR WMS.
Delivery scheduling is an Advanced WMS feature and requires Advanced WMS to be added to your subscription.
