Hi @lenowng 

 

Thanks for your question- it might be possible to surface the order deliver date as a datapoint/ field. What would be the specific use-case that you'd have for this? 

 

Cheers,

Thanks for the clarification. I'm building an integration for a merchant which ideally wants a quick glance at the dashboard to know "scheduled order" (this will be part of the functionality of the app) should be fulfill on what date.

Otherwise, I have to develop a custom dashboard as part of the app itself which I'm trying to avoid here.

Anyway, is there a way for me to display Delivery Date on the dashboard along with Delivery Method (which we already seeing this)?

Hi @lenowng 

 

Sorry for the late reply on this! Would the delivery date accessible through the API help with this use-case, or would it need to be a Liquid variable?

 

Cheers,

At this moment, I'm looking at only API calls would be sufficient. Would you recommend any articles or guides or docs that I could start digging?

@lenowng I'm asking our internal devs what would be the best way to surface this info, but in the meantime would our developer docs on deliverySettingUpdate and FulfillmentEvent  help with this? 

 

I'll update here with more advice on this.

 

Cheers,

 

Liam

Heyyo Liam, while waiting, I have dug deeper in hope to explore more possibility.

Needed validation on this idea based on vagued documentation on: https://shopify.dev/docs/app-extensions/extension-areas

So, can a merchant installs an app (say, App1) and App1 could serve a javascript that whenever the admin got into the Order Index /Page where the order dashboard appears, also load a javascript from App1? In that sense, the javascript can be responsible in modifying the dashboard view, e.g. adding a column. Otherwise, what can an App Extension be doing at Order Index?

The documentation looks vague to me
