The Order Fulfillments area of the admin is a listing of all orders that require fulfillment that have not yet been fulfilled.
This is where you go to select the order fulfillments to create a Fulfillment Batch of order(s) that you can then fulfill together (in full or partially over time) instead of fulfilling them individually through the order. You can use batches for one order or for multiple orders.
Once you have created your batch, you will manage the batch through the Fulfillment Batches area of the admin.
If you are looking for information on how to fulfill an individual order without using fulfillment batches see the fulfilling an order section in this user guide.
You will not find orders that have already been fulfilled here or orders that are fulfilled through auto fulfillment or email fulfillment - things like e-gift cards.
