Hello,

 

Can you please advise how I can remove a cancelled order from my 'unfulfilled' filter please?

 

I have refunded and cancelled the order however it's still showing on my unfulfilled screen and it's really frustrating when i'm trying to work through my unfulfilled orders. 

 

Or is there anyone who can help remove this?

Thank you

Ellie

Hi @Ellieh27,

Nick here from Shopify. Great question! 

There are only certain circumstances when an order and be completely deleted and removed from the admin. 

Deleted orders are removed from your Shopify admin and are no longer tracked in reports. Only the following types of order can be deleted:

  • orders that were paid with a manual payment method
  • orders that started as a draft and were then marked as paid
  • orders that were imported through the Shopify API
  • test orders

I did make a test order on my store, cancelled it, then the Delete Order option came up at the bottom of the order as you can see in the screenshot: 

25-52-9y01l-hadyi

This did remove the order from my main orders and the unfulfilled section. Something to note though is there will be no information or data from the order anywhere in your store should you ever need it for any purpose afterwards. Shopify also has a guide for this which you can read here. Let me know if this works for you.

Hello @Ellieh27 , you can do this by clicking on the order no. and on the bottom left you can see an option called "Delete order". However please note that this would delete that particular order from your shopify admin forever.

I can see that since 2016 many people have asked to have a button to simply fulfil or delete any unfulfilled order.

Is this available already?

I work with pre-orders and I want to have a direct view of what really needs to be fulfilled.

Please let me know... someone!

Thanks

Hi @JFMMUK,

Currently the only way an order can be deleted is if it is under the same circumstances as I mentioned in my above reply:

You can read more about this from the guide Shopify has about deleting orders here

So just to clarify: There is no way I can change the fulfilment status on orders that are cancelled or refunded and archived and/or older than 60 days ?

 

So I will have my open order counter always show those ancient orders?

At the moment I still have the unnecessary and inconvenient 8 orders that were fraud or were cancelled.

There should be a way to reset this…

That’s really deceiving and unnecessary - I should have control on what to see on my app or on my browser.

Hi @markvanhaze,

In this instance because the order was never technically fulfilled so it would always show this order status. If the order is archived then it doesn't count to open orders in your admin. The Shopify docs have more information about order fulfillment here

I'm sorry but making a unfulfilled order archived, does not remove it from the counter.

Unless this is some sort of caching issue I'm not aware of.

Hi @markvanhaze,

Apologies, I don't think I communicated it very well before:

When you fulfill an order, you can archive it to remove it from the list of open orders. Archiving lets you keep track of open orders that have not yet been completed, and to make sure that you have an accurate count of open orders in Shopify.

Any cancelled unfullfilled orders will remain in the order section of the store and look like this:

24-44-rewpk-jdg2n

24-46-ygfnc-2xeso

It's not possible to remove it from the list of orders there. There is a Shopify help guide which touches on canceling, archiving and deleting orders here too. 

I do see what you mean, that having the order there can be annoying and by archiving it you would want it removed from that section completely. I will submit a feature request on your behalf with this feedback for the development team going forward!
