New Merge Consignees Page
Our team redesigned the Merge Consignees page to simplify and improve the process with self-descriptive fields.
Click the Merge Consignees button on the Consignees index page. Then enter the consignee names that will be merged -- the upper field is labeled "Merge these consignees" and the lower field is labeled "Into this consignee."
Once all of the names have been entered, click Submit. After merging, only the consignee name in the lower field will remain in the consignee directory.
