The Community Insight Dashboard provides a real-time view into the current on-boarding process, status and EDI capabilities of your entire vendor community…

Direct EDI provides Hubs with access to Community Insight (CI), a secure web-based intelligent dashboard. CI is used for tracking entire Vendor Community EDI enablement status. It offers a real time view including date stamped records of EDI enablement activity, EDI connectivity choices, and contact information as provided by the vendors. CI offers the ability to download vendor contact information, EDI selections and activity into CSV files. CI assists Direct EDI and the Hub staff in helping vendors to meet compliance requirements.

3. The ASN information is not consistent with the shipment
