Delivery Date Changes
If you are the filling florist and you receive an incoming order that you cannot deliver on the requested date, you need to decide whether you are going to reject it or send an "Ask" message to the sending florist to see if you can deliver the order on a different date. Keep in mind that if the filling florist sends an "Ask" message and you have not yet received an answer in a timely manner, the FTD Delayed Response Policy rules still apply. If the sending florist does not agree to the delivery date change, they must send an "Answer" or cancel the order.
 
If you are the sending florist and you want to change the delivery date (for example, if the customer has requested a new date), you need to send the filling florist an "Ask" message requesting the date change. If the filling florist can change the date, they will send you an "Answer" message agreeing to the change. If they cannot, the sending florist should cancel the order.
 
In addition to including the delivery date change request in the body of the Mercury message, the delivery date MUST also be changed in the delivery date form field.
