Need a way to send the shipping tracking# after order completion email is sent
There  needs to be a way to change the shipping date, from something other then the current day and time when I click on the "Confirm Shipment" button.  The reason is, I often have suppliers drop ship orders for me directly to my customers. Many of them do not always get me the tracking numbers till a day or more after they have actually shipped it. So, as an example I will not send a shipping confirmation, without first entering a tracking number. If a customers order is shipped from a supplier to one of my customers via Next Day Air, and I can not get the tracking number from the supplier till the following day, then when I enter the tracking number the next day into the order and click the "Confirm Shipment", the customer will receive an email showing the item as having shipped a day later then it actually did.  One possible solution would be to have the cart show the shipping confirmation date, but then have another editable field where a separate "Date of Shipment" could be entered
