Acknowledging messages allows you to remove messages from the requires attention list without having to send a message in reply. Essentially, it allows you to mark that you have read the message.

You can acknowledge the following Mercury Message types:

  • Incoming Ask (ASK) messages
  • Incoming Answer (ANS) messages
  • Incoming Deny (DEN) messages
  • Incoming Reject (REJ) messages (although you can acknowledge this message, you must still either cancel the order or resend it to remove the message from the Requires Attention list)
  • Incoming Confirmation (CON) messages
  • Incoming Forward (FOR) messages
  • Incoming General (GEN) messages

When you acknowledge a message, the Acknowledgment window opens. You can then select your employee name from the Employee list, and then click Save to save the Acknowledgment. Once you acknowledge a message, it no longer shows up under the requires attention list and the message status is set to Acknowledged. If you acknowledge a message that is associated with an already attached (opened in Order Entry via Message Center) order, the acknowledgment is recorded in Order Notes for the order

When you send an Answer message as a response to an Ask message, the Ask message is automatically acknowledged. Delivery Confirmation messages are automatically acknowledged when they are received.
