🚀 INTRODUCING 🌟
Improved Order Management View and Workflow
This dashboard upgrade brings you a new order management experience with greater visibility into the status of your order, as well as an easy way to get started on planning ahead for where your swag will go - and that’s whether you’re putting everything in storage, or sending swag across the world.
We took your feedback and created this updated order view to help give you a bird’s eye view into everything related to your order.
Most importantly, you no longer have to wait until your designs are ready to start uploading CSV files, planning shipments, and marking swag for storage.
With this update, you can take on all of this at your own pace. Less effort, fewer headaches, and more time back in your day. Now that’s what we like to call a win.
Here’s what you need to know about this new view:
- Everything related to your swag designs is reachable from the left-hand side. This is your Design section. You will see all the swag products associated with your order request here. Below each swag product is a link to view your mockups. You will be able to leave feedback, request changes, and approve mockups through that link.
- Thinking ahead to shipping and storage? The Shipping & Storage section has everything you need. Click Create Shipment to start sending swag to recipients, or Send to Warehouse to set aside specific quantities of swag for storage at our warehouse. As you make changes, you’ll be able to see updated estimated costs on the right hand side.
- And that brings us to the Project Summary. On the right-hand side, you will see a breakdown of your swag project and estimated costs for the swag products, any shipping and storage costs, and overall totals. This summary is updated in real time as you make changes to your swag project plans, including increasing and decreasing quantities for your order and changing decoration methods.

🔨 NEW AND IMPROVED 🎉
Flexible Process for Fixing Failed Addresses
Catch errors before launch for fewer headaches, better swag, and swag project success. This update improves the process for catching and updating failed addresses for pending shipments.
Here’s how it works.
When uploading a CSV, especially if you have a lot of contacts on the list, it can be easy to miss errors, from typos to missing data. Our system will flag potential issues and send an email notifying you of any invalid addresses. You will then be able to fix address issues directly from the SwagUp platform under the Shipments tab.
💡SWAG EXPERT TIP: Check out this help article on best practices for uploading a bulk CSV. For a streamlined process, use the provided CSV template in the SwagUp dashboard (Select Shipments > Send Swag > Add Contact to bring up the prompt). This will help ensure your data is in the right format and minimize the risk of potential errors.
