Symptoms

There is a requirement for the system to track and store what dates were overwritten by the user at order entry.
Currently the system has no way of determining whether and what dates may have been overwritten when an order / shipment originally was created.
That can lead to inconsistencies in date calculation at a later point when the order is updated systematically.
An example is Back order release R42118.
USer enters an order with 2 lines where one line is back ordered and where the Promised Ship date is overwritten at order entry on both lines.
For the line that is shipped and based on the entered Ship date the Promised Delivery date is calculated ahead and the Pick date is calculated prior to the promised ship date
For the back ordered line the the Promised Delivery date is defaulted based on the Promised Ship date, which is different then the date calculated on the other line.
When R42118 is run the system has no indication that originally the Promised Ship date was entered. It now uses the promised delivery date and back schedules all dates, thus creating a second shipment with different dates than what was calculated on line 1.
The system should be able to track that the Promised ship date originally was entered and run the calculation based on that at back order release.
This is especially an issue in a set up where order entry and back order release are un in batch (R47011 and R42118) and no manual intervention is possible to correct the dates.
There are other examples in the process of updating and creating shipments where date tracking would streamline processes by not requiring users to manually consolidate order lines dues to varying date calculations.
