Do the new order status attributes change automatically when I ship or cancel an order?
During the extension configuration, you will specify how you wish order status attributes to change when you perform actions. If you prefer changes to be set automatically they can be set automatically, if you prefer them to be set manually they can be set manually too.
What happens to Magento custom modules that rely on the Magento order status?
Since the default order status is still in the database, it will still be changed behind-the-scenes when you perform actions like shipping or canceling orders. Because of this, Magento custom modules that pull information from the default order status field should continue to work as usual.
What happens to order status data for previous store orders?
All previous order status data will be preserved in the database in case you ever need them. Unfortunately, we have no way to map the old statuses to new orders, so when you first install the module, you may need to set up some manual order statuses.
What happens to the original Magento order status field?
Once the extension is installed on your store, the default Magento orders status field will be hidden in your template, and will no longer be visible or accessible. In its place will be a new “Shipping Status” and “Payment Status,” which you can use to filter and view orders.
Can I change any order on my store to a custom order status?
Yes. The basic edition of the extension lets you create whatever custom order status you want.
With the Pro and deluxe editions you can separate the order status into 2 different fields: payment and shipping, and then create a custom order status for each of these fields.
