As a default behavior, AoB already color-codes many of the orders on your ship page to alert for special circumstances such as International (Green) or Expedited (Pink), and when you have two separate orders going to the same buyer (address highlighted red), for a few examples.
But what if you have an order that is in your nearby location, and you want to offer a pick-up or delivery to the buyer? Or, say, you have a repeat buyer that is difficult, and you want to be notified in some way of any new orders from that buyer so that you can take any necessary steps to handle the order as needed. You need a way to set this up easily, using your own color-coding choices. That's exactly what Buyer Alerts will do for you.
Found on Shipping Settings, this tool allows you to set up matching patterns using a variety of data points ...
- Buyer name
- Recipient name
- Street addresses
- Zip Code
... to alert your shipping team for any coding that AoB does not already do as a default.

Or you can click 'Less' at my red arrows in the image to condense this panel so it displays just the color blocks.
Once you have selected your color-coding that color will be what the Color field displays to you ...
