Would love to have a tags column for the Shipments Page
We use tags for both new orders and shipped orders, it would be great to be able to add the 'tags' column in the shipping window.
Thanks for voting! We’d like for your ideas to gain more traction before making a decision. Can you tell us your use case for tagging your Shipments? We’ve received well-stated examples in the comments, but would like to hear more voices stand behind this idea.
Please comment here in the forum so we all can hear your thoughts!
This is needed to highlight certain shipments for attention and follow-up.
For instance if a package is lost we could highlight on the shipments. Also, USPS is notoriously inaccurate. We find parcels "in transit" by USPS (tracking available within Shipstation) but we reach out to our clients and find the parcel HAS arrived. We could then tag that the item was received and sort our in transit orders accordingly.
There are international shipments where the USPS Status is not accurate. Use of a TAG in Shipments would allow us to mark those shipments as we get information from the Clients.
BIG workflow boost!
This would allow us to tag orders in shipment page to trigger API's relating to shipped orders

I would like to ditto the comments on this thread. This would make follow up so much more efficient. How much traction would you need to get something implemented? Would it be possible to have a vote on all the ideas that are pending so we can help prioritize them for ShipStation?(Edited by admin)
Would make my job a lot easier if this was available. We pull batches by product type and would be great to see at a quick glance the tags related to the batch if so desired.

I use tags to mark a backordered item that needs to be shipped separately when the item is back in stock. I need to find the tag in shipments to get the item to the right person. It seems like I used to be able to find tags there before and now I can't. And I can't add tags in the colums in the shipments window either.

We use Tags for all sorts of things, and they allow us quick, easy, and *very* specific sorting of orders. Would very much like to have that that sorting ability in the Shipments and Fulfillment sections
I would also love to have this. One instance where this is necessary is I created an API for shipping orders automatically and tagging them as such and would love to be able to the shipments tab to actually print these shipments!

We often need to search through our shipment data, and it would be vastly helpful if we could search by certain things: SKU, Item Name, Order Tags, etc. All the advanced search options that are available under Orders are great, we'd just like the same options under Shipments. Especially Tags, and SKUs.
Thanks for the updates! We're still looking for more traction on this idea, so if you haven't added your thoughts please do!
@Michael, @Gene, @kristina - You're still able to open the Order Details window from the Shipments page to add Order Tags (located under "Order Summary") or Order Notes. However if you're searching through orders for this type of information, the Shipped tab on the Orders is the best option today.

If an order is tagged say for a gift message and we want to check that the order was fulfilled correctly then we need to be able to see the tag under the shipments page to be able to find the order quickly

This is needed to highlight certain shipments for attention and follow-up. For instance if a package is lost then how do you highlight that in the shipments screen? We want to tag it to signify that an insurance claim needs to be filed. It is surprising that this capability is not available.

There is no way to tag orders in Orders screen and bring up Tagged orders in shipments screen.
We plan to add an order tag when processing a shipment that indicates which return shipping method is ideal for that particular item. We are a rental business and sometimes we want items back ASAP (short supply, busy season, etc), and other times the items can come back Parcel Post and save us some money. However, I need to be able to SEE the tags in the Shipments view so that I know which shipping method to choose when I create the return label.
