What do these different order tabs mean?

Once you enter an order, you can see the order under the “Current Orders” tab or “Scheduled Orders” tab.

Current Orders: These are the orders that are active now and have an expected delivery time within the next few hours.

Scheduled Orders: This is the parking lot of future orders. If an order is scheduled to be delivered in the future, it is saved under this tab.
