Suggestion For Help Text Improvement - "Data Purge" Helptext Possibly Misleading

(Doc ID 740383.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 08, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Transportation Management - Version: 5.5.04
This problem can occur on any platform.

Symptoms

In the "Data Purge" Help Topic it says:

"Use the Status Type field to identify a shipment or order status type. OTM
purges shipments/orders with that status type.

In the Status Value field, enter a shipment or order status value. OTM purges
shipments/orders with that status value."

In reality, it rather behaves like this:

You may use the Status Type field to identify a shipment or order status
type. Once you select a status type, OTM displays the valid values for that
status type and you may purge shipments/orders with that status type/value
pair.

Planning to purge shipments allows them to go into the JOB_QUEUE, and
schedule Order Releases to run after the shipments purge during the night.
