The first thing you see when you log into your Opencart admin area is a list of orders.
The problem we found with this list was that it was quite difficult to see at a glance what the status of those orders where and thought it would be great if we could assign a colour to each order status so we could see very quickly at what stage the order was at.
We work on a Yellow, Amber, Green. Yellow is for new orders (Pending), Amber is for orders being Processed (Processing) and Green once the order is complete or shipped. Of course you can choose whatever colour you like for each status.
You can assign colours to each order status in the Settings->Localisation->Order Status screen. You simple choose a background colour by clicking into the colour box and a colour picker will be presented for you to choose your colour. Or you can type the hex code into the text box. The system will automatically choose a contrasting text (foreground) colour so that the text remains readable.
--- NEW --- Returns Statuses are now also supported. They work exactly the same way as order statuses. You can set your colours via System->Localisation->Returns->Return Statuses.
We have a demo setup here
EDIT 3/08/2012 - This extension is now compatible with Order Manager. Unzip the Order Manager file and replace the xml file
EDIT 17/05/2013 - Added Return Statuses colour coding. Removed the need to manually import the SQL file. This is now done automatically.
