The StreamV Hold Management system will automatically place any required holds on a sales or loaner order as the order is created or edited. The holds which are placed are based on the information in the customer and order being processed, and on the way you have configured the hold system.
In some cases, you may also want to add a hold to an order manually. Reasons for doing this might include
The order is not finalized and you need some additional information before releasing the order for shipment (you may be waiting for a customer purchase order number, or to confirm the shipping method to be used for the order).
