If that person is unavailable the order will sent back as Unable to Fill (UTF). A “name suggest” is only a suggestion in case the dispatch coordination system is having trouble finding someone. If a name suggest is used the order will be filled with the closest resource. If the name suggest is not available, the order will be filled with another qualified individual.
