Connections - Features

Connections allow you to view and control Orders, Inventory, and Shipments in one convenient location. They introduce new management functions, such as the ability to manually force an order status import for shipment information. And they provide API insights for a clearer view into the communications exchanged between connected systems.

The Connections view (Dashboard > Connections) provides a broad overview of your Connections, which can be enabled or disabled individually.
