This seems intuitive. You show a list of shipments on the sync page, but you don't show the status of the shipments. How could you have missed this?

Unlike other apps, the actual status messages are fetched directly from the carrier website/API. This means that my server is not involved in this process and the status messages never get into the hands of a third party (including me).

The website is meant purely to facilitate management of larger numbers of deliveries, it's not supposed to replace the app functionality.

Thanks for your understanding!

I was about to ask the same question. I get that this could be a privacy concern but I think most would be okay with that risk since status updates do not have personal information. Maybe there could be an optional setting to forward status messages to your server so that they appear on the website? I would really like to be able to check status on my work computer without needing to get on my phone.
