What happens when I freeze an EML?

When you freeze an EML, a read-only copy of the EML (containing EML Details, PPLs, and price codes) automatically gets created. More importantly, the freight forwarder can create invoice attachments after you freeze the EML.

  1. Click the EML Details tab.

  2. Click Freeze. A read-only copy of the EML gets created.

  3. Type a name for the copy and click Save.

    • When you freeze an EML, a read-only copy of the EML (containing EML Details, PPLs, and price codes) automatically gets created for the EML. You can view it from the Price Codes tab.

    • If you want to edit the frozen EML or the PPLs in it, you need to unfreeze it by clicking Unfreeze. After making the changes, you can freeze it again by clicking Refreeze.

    • You cannot unfreeze an EML, if the freight forwarder has created at least one invoice attachment.

    • To track the change of price codes over time, you can create a revision of price codes at any time. Click Add Revision from the Price Codes tab to create a revision.

    • You can create as many revisions of price codes as you want.

    • Unless you freeze the EML, you cannot create a revision for the price codes.
