How Backtrack works

Step 1

Use the /backtrack command to identify one or more tracking numbers.

Step 2

Backtrack identifies the carrier for each of your tracking numbers.

Step 3

Backtrack then retrieves and displays tracking information for each located tracking number.

Step 4

Your results are safe. Only you see the tracking information for your tracking numbers.

View tracking detail

Select the tracking status to access carrier details in an easy to view layout.

Navigate to the carrier tracking site by selecting the tracking number on the tracking view.

Share your results

By default your tracking results are only seen by you.

Click the Share button to share tracking results with your team.

Use the 'share' subcommand to share previously tracked packages with the team.

Backtrack remembers

Backtrack will let you retrieve the latest tracking status for your last three tracking numbers.

/backtrack
/backtrack show
/backtrack show 1

View the status of your last three tracking numbers. Using the 'show' subcommand retrieve a specific one of the three.

/backtrack share
/backtrack share 2

Subcommand 'share' works the same as 'show', but will share your tracking status with the team.
