FAQ: Pre Order

Pre Order
Can I assign pre order status to a category in bulk?

Yes, in case you have customized your Magento options with additional extensions for sorting products by category, you will need to use the 'Update Attributes' mass action and make changes in the back order field to assign the status to a category. Read on to see the example.

Can I restrict customers from adding both regular and pre-order items to a single order?

Unfortunately, you can’t create such restrictions with this Pre Order extension.

Can I see pre orders on the Magento Order Grid?

Yes, you can see the back order report in a separate column in the 'Orders' section. Go on reading to see the screenshot.
