  • EDI events affecting start/end time

    Hello,

    We have carriers set up on EDI. When carriers send in an EDI event (shipment event) it kicks off our shipment event tracker agent which then recalculates stop times. I noticed when an "Actual" arrival at a particular stop, for instance stop 1, will update the start time of the shipment accordingly. So if a shipment event of a shipment arriving at stop 1 (the pickup location) comes into OTM, the start time of the shipment ends up getting updated with that eventdate that was sent in by the carrier.

    Question: is there a way to update actual arrival information on the stop, but not affect the start time? and/or end time?

    Any thoughts are most appreciated.

    If I would have understood your problem, you want to modify the start time in the shipment stop, which should not be reflected on shipment header/identification tab.

    There is a work around for this. Before entering the Actual Arrival Time capture the shipment start time on header on to a temparary variable. once the event xml is processed, directly update the shipment start time on DB with the value you captured early.

    Hope it helps.

      Another way is to disable (or modify) the shipment event tracker to no longer automatically update the shipment times

        Thank you both! I tried to assign variables and then put the time back into the start time. This, in combination, with re-arranging the SHIPMENT EVENT TRACKER public agent. The new "SHIPMENT EVENT TRACKER", that was made, updated only desired fields.
