Shipment Templates are a core part of the Tive Shipment workflow. Shipment Templates make it easier to create shipments for commonly used shipping lanes. Shipment Templates include standard shipping details and Alert Profile(s) to be used across many shipments.

Viewing and Creating Shipment Templates
To view your existing Shipment Templates, navigate to "Configure" in the main menu and click "Shipment Templates". To create a new Shipment Template, click the green "Create New Shipment Template" button.
Enter a unique Name and Description for the template. Next, enter the Ship To and Ship From locations for the template and choose whether or not the shipment should be automatically completed upon delivery. Finally, select which Alert Profile(s) you would like to attach to the Shipment Template.
When you are finished, click the green "Create" button. The template is now available for use.
Using Shipment Templates
When creating a new shipment, scroll down to Shipping Details, select "Use existing Shipment Template", and choose a template. Shipping details will now be set to the values defined in the Shipment Template.
If you would like to customize any of the shipment details, select "Use custom shipping details". You can now edit any of the fields that were filled out automatically from the template. Note that any edits you make will only be implemented on the particular shipment you are creating. Customizing shipment details for a particular shipment will not change the template.
