Bulk download of orders and orderlines from Optimizer Explainer

The current Optimizer Explainer does not a have an option to export the orders, order lines and node details to be exported to an external template for further review and analysis, the limitations lead to the following challenges.

  1. Difficulty in identifying issues with specific order lines and nodes selected for fulfillment. A lot of time and effort is wasted in looking into a set of orders across dates to arrive at a pattern that can be used to identify any potential gaps in the product.

  2. Validating with internal reporting data with the optimized orders in SFO. Analyzing the data and comparing with other reporting systems is impossible with the order level check.

  3. No date or period search filters are resulting in piling up of the orders and misalignment in the UI table after scrolling through orders.

What is your industry? Retail
How will this idea be used?

Bulk download option will be used to extract the order details to an excel file for further analysis and deep-dive into the optimization data.
