  • By using the 'Back to ACE Manifest' link that is created to allow easy return to the most recently viewed manifest.
  • From the ACE Manifest Search Page by clicking 'View' on the ACE eManifest search result.

Main Function Buttons

Acemenubuttons1.png

The main function buttons are located near the top of the page. They allow access to some of the most important functions on the manifest, most of which would commonly by used only when the manifest has been completed.

Edit Button
Used to change the Trip Number, U.S. Port of Arrival, or ETA of the manifest. It brings the user to the Edit ACE eManifest Page to allow these changes to be made. Upon making the changes and clicking 'Save' the user is returned back to the ACE eManifest Details Page.
Print Button
Used to generate an ACE eManifest Driver's Copy in pdf format. Moving the mouse over this button displays the choice between the Standard Driver's Copy and the Detailed Driver's Copy. Either can be selected depending on user preference. Once the selection is made, the driver's copy will open on the user's computer.
Fax Button
Used to send an ACE eManifest Driver's Copy via fax. Moving the mouse over this button displays the choice between faxing the Standard Driver's Copy and the Detailed Driver's Copy. Once the selection is made the user will be prompted to enter the fax number to send the copy to, as well as given the option to include a subject that will appear in the header of the fax. Once these are entered, clicking 'Send' will send the fax and return the user to the ACE eManifest Details Page. Please note that the area code is always required regardless of where the fax is being sent.
Email Button
Used to send an ACE eManifest Driver's Copy via email. Moving the mouse over this button displays the choice between emailing the Standard Driver's Copy and the Detailed Driver's Copy. Once the selection is made the user will be prompted to enter the email address to send the copy to, as well as given the option to include a subject and email body. The user can also change the 'From' email address if desired. Once these are entered, clicking 'Send' will send the email with the driver's copy as a pdf attachment, and return the user to the ACE eManifest Details Page.
Send to CBP Button
Used to transmit ACE eManifest data to CBP. Moving the mouse over this button displays the following choices:
  • Send Complete eManifest: Transmits the manifest to CBP. Should only be used for a manifest not currently on file with CBP. ie a draft or cancelled manifest.
  • Amend Completed eManifest: Transmits a change request for the manifest to CBP. Used when a manifest that is already on file needs to be updated.
  • Cancel Completed eManifest: Transmits a request to cancel the manifest to CBP. Used when a manifest that is already on file needs to be cancelled in order to allow changes to the trip number, shipment control numbers or date, or simply because the freight is no longer expected to cross the border.
Once the selection is made the user will be asked to confirm the transmission, and the request will be sent to CBP. If there were any errors on the manifest to prevent the transmission, the user would be notified at this time.
Set Status Button
Used to correct the Current Status of the manifest when it is believed to be incorrect. Because the system updates the Current Status automatically based on CBP responses, this feature should seldom if ever be used. Please note the Set Status Button cannot be used to make changes to a manifest in the CBP system. eg. setting the status to Cancelled will not cancel a manifest with CBP. A cancel request would be used instead.
Moving the mouse over this button displays the choice between all available statuses for an ACE eManifest. Once the selection is made the user will be asked to confirm the selection, and the Current Status will be updated.
Track Button
Used to keep track of a manifest via email and system notification. When tracking a manifest, the user will receive an email every time there is a new CBP response for that manifest, including arrival and release responses. There will also be a link to that manifest displayed just under the menu bar to allow the user easy access to return to the manifest, and this link will show 3 red exclamation marks when the manifest has received a new response.
Moving the mouse over this button displays the choice between tracking the manifest and tracking the manifest with a note. Tracking with a note will allow the user to enter a comment intended to help the user remember why the manifest is being tracked. Once the manifest is tracked the user can stop tracking it using this same button, and selecting untrack eManifest.

Details / History Window

Ace details.png

The Details/History Window is located directly under the Main Function Buttons. It is designed to give the user information about the status of the manifest. It is divided into two sections:

Details
Displays information about the manifest including the Trip Number, Port of Arrival, Estimated Arrival Date, and the Current Status.
History
Displays a complete history for the manifest and all attached shipments, including when the manifest and shipments were started, major changes that were made, what was sent to CBP, and CBP responses. Together with Current Status, this section is crucial to understanding the state of the manifest. The History Section is the only place where the user can:
  • Determine if the One Hour Prior Notice Requirement has been met. The hour begins once CBP has accepted the ACE eManifest. The user can determine when the manifest was accepted by looking in the history for the CBP Response accepting the manifest. Please note that if the manifest was cancelled and resubmitted, or if it was changed, only the most recent accept message will apply to the hour notification requirement.
  • See a CBP Reject. When Customs rejects a manifest the reason for the reject will be displayed here, allowing the user to determine what action needs to be taken to correct it.
  • See when the truck arrived at the border. A message will be received when the truck arrives at the border regardless of whether it is released immediately or held for inspection.
  • Track changes made to the manifest. While other areas of the system will display current information, the history will record major changes made to the manifest, which could be crucial to understanding its progression.
