Select an order. At the top of the order, you will see the Order Number in a box at the top. If the box is white, it will say "save SO#xyz" like in the image below. Click the box and it will turn yellow, indicating the data has been saved in SME.
On this tab, you will see the site address, order status, order summary, etc.
Your administrator may have reduced down the fields on this tab to the ones that are used so your Detail tab may not look like what you are seeing on this page or on the demo.
