How can I attach notes to an order at the time of creation? I would like to pass information regarding packaging type and specific delivery instructions supplied by the customer on a third party site.
An Order object has an optional
metadata field which is a Map of strings. You can pretty much put whatever you want in there, so you could definitely use it for a notes field. For more information take a look here: https://developer.squareup.com/docs/build-basics/metadata
How do I pass custom information to the Square Dashboard? I need to relate shipping information (package requirements, box size, etc) that can be viewed on the Order Details page in the Square Dashboard. Metadata is not viewable in this scenario.
I don’t think that’s currently possible unfortunately.
